Chicago must be the center of the makers universe as well as the center of the country, at least this weekend.
We already know that Claire is there installing a show.
Now Sarah (Seattle) and Marilyn (San Diego) have made the scene to do the Renegade Craft Fair Holiday Sale.
(ed. note: Marilyn has taken all her jewelry to Chicago to show, so her tinyshiny etsy store is empty at the moment...)
And on a local note, a whole bunch of ShoeStringers and friends are participating in the annual TRAC holiday studio tour and sale. There's over 145 studios/artists participating around our two-county radius. Get out and support them and meet some interesting people that make stuff.
