BUST Craftacular at World Maker Faire



I can’t believe it’s this weekend already! Don’t miss the BUST Magazine Craftacular inside World Maker Faire NY:

This year for the very first time, on September 25th and 26th, the BUST Magazine Craftacular will be held outdoors at the World’s Fairgrounds in Queens, NY when it joins the World Maker Faire, which is debuting on the East Coast. In addition to over 100 crafty vendors, the event will offer a line-up of amazing DJs, outdoor lounges and stitching areas, food from around the city, drinks, free raffle drawings, prizes and lots of fun.

“The Maker Faire has established itself as the premier creative festival on the West Coast, and we’re so excited to join forces with them here in New York,” said Debbie Stoller, founder of the BUST Magazine Craftacular and Editor-in-Chief of BUST Magazine. “The BUST Magazine Craftacular will give visitors an opportunity not only to meet artists and crafters who are doing some of the most inspiring work imaginable, but also to try their hand at some crafting themselves.” Stoller, who is also the author of the bestselling “Stitch ‘n Bitch” series of knitting and crochet books, will be onsite making her own crafts, signing books, and interacting with fair-goers.

Launched six years ago in Brooklyn, NY, the BUST Magazine Craftacular offers shoppers access to world-class indie vendors selling jewelry, art, home décor, t-shirts, knitwear, bags and any other handmade item imaginable, and has quickly grown to be the largest indie holiday craft sale in New York City. In the past few years it has expanded to include annual events in Los Angeles and London, and was recently awarded Folio Magazine’s prestigious Gold FAME Award for Best Special Event, as well as the Grand FAME Award for Best Overall Event.
