Is it just us, or is Denver art + craft totally showing its awesomeness lately on a national level?! For example, two weeks in a row, two Denver hand-making businesses were interviewed for Etsy's Quit Your Day Job feature. Check out Cyanide Stitches story here, and Vital Industries story here. Both businesses were also Horseshoe vendors!
Additionally, we've seen Denver folks pop up in cool national magazines. Jeanne Connolly of Vintage Renewal has been featured in ReadyMade a few times, and we saw that Denver Handmade Alliance's Art by Craft got a shout out in ReadyMade, too. Cool stuff. As we are finalizing plans for our 2011 markets, we continue to be inspired by people and organizations in Colorado who are doing extraordinary things (Another great one? The YesPleaseMore pop-up store that sells 100% Colorado goods).
We're proud to be part of a culture of creativity, authenticity and people going after their dreams! Speaking of dreams, we saw that Fashion Denver's Brandi Shigley is putting on another one of her dreamer/doer workshops on November 10th. Check it out!
