I’m about to step on a plane to go to this summer’s Urban Craft Uprising in Seattle, and I’m so excited! You Pacific Northwesterners will be happy to hear that this huge weekend craft fair will have chilly chilly air conditioning, so come on out and beat the heat while browsing and scoring some awesome handmade crafts. There will be crafty demos for getting your learn on, and author signings for your favorite craft books. Follow UCU on Twitter to keep up with the latest happenings at the event, and tag your own tweets with #UCUsummer2009 to keep others informed of your sweet finds. Come by and say hi!
