Tulsa Craft Mafia

Getting Ready. by paperlotusdesign

Well, it’s that time of year when those of us who like to sell our crafty goods have everything going in overdrive – the sewing machines are fired up, the screen printing ink is flying, beads are being strung, polymer clay is baking…in other words, we are getting busy!

For most of us, our crafting is a side business or a hobby, so we fit it in around our day jobs and other obligations. And as we get ready for the holiday season, making enough product to take to a craft show can be a challenge. We just try to fit it in wherever we can – on our lunch break, after the homework is done, or while we’re supposed to be spending “quality time” with the husband. I often knit while watching movies – so I probably haven’t seen a whole movie through from start to finish at home in quite a while.

In a few weeks we have our first big show of the season – Indie Emporium! I attended last year for the first time, and it was so much fun! We’ll all be there, and we hope you and yours will stop by to see all the great vendors that will be there. This is a great event to have here in Tulsa – to have a place to support local artists, and offer people a chance to buy local – and to also stock up on some holiday gifts that were made by hand!

So as you are walking through all the booths at Indie Emporium on October 9 and 10, remember all the hours we’ve spent – on the couch, in our studios, at the day job – putting into all the wonderful things you see!

See you soon!
