Division St. between Damen Ave. & Ashland Ave.
Chicago, IL 60622
If you are anywhere near or in Chicago this weekend, you won’t want to miss the Renegade Craft Fair in Wicker Park! Davey and I will be there all weekend with a selection of original embroideries (starting at just $50), new #SKBDIY embroidery kits, peel + stick embroidery design transfers, signed copies of Embroidered Life: The Art of Sarah K. Benning and more!
PLUS I will be creating custom botanical embroidery kits from 11 - 1pm both days of the market! There will be a menu of plant options to include and I will draw a one of a kind pattern right in front of you! I will be creating only 5 of these custom kits each day and it will be on a first come/first served basis.
AND I will be teaching a very special 1-hour embroidery workshop in collaboration with FISKARS on Sunday, September 8th from 4:30 - 5:30pm. This workshop is totally free and includes a kits of supplies and stitch demonstrations. This workshop will be limited to 12 participants and a sign up sheet will be available at the FISKARS tent all weekend.
But I won’t be the only one at the market this weekend (obviously)! There will be somewhere between 300-400 vendors all offering up incredible handmade and artisanal goods and I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorites! Speaking from experience, this event can be a little overwhelming, so it helps to go in with a plan! You can find the entire Renegade Roster here and be sure to check out the map so you can plan your visit (my booth, #311, is one tent block in from the Damen Ave. entrance)! Keep on reading for list of 10 other makers I will definitely be stopping by this weekend!
