How is it suddenly Friday? We've been light on the blogging due to sickness over here. The weekend is upon us, though. And it's warm out, the sun is shining, and it's feeling more and more like Spring...which means our first Market is coming soon! And means that our down jacket is happily in the closet for now.

We hope all of you vendors are getting busy creating and doing your thang in preparation for the first market! What are you all doing to prepare? If any of you vendors are looking for some support with your craft-based business, the great Denver Handmade Alliance has some upcoming workshops you should all know about.

This Monday, DHA brings the Business Roundtable to Hooked on Colfax! Each month DHA will be picking a relevant topics related to craft-based business, and holding an open discussion in a casual setting. The DHA Business Roundtable is an opportunity for all of you crafty folk to gather together and learn from each other’s experiences. Yay for collaboration! All are welcome to join, no matter your level of experience. Bring what you know! Here are the details:

Another great DHA event coming this Spring--The Crafty Ballyhoo, of course!
Here are the details:

In collaboration with Create Denver Week (put on by Denver's Office of Cultural Affairs), the Denver Handmade Alliance is sponsoring the Second Annual Crafty Ballyhoo, a craft market for local vendors of fantastic handmade goods and an interactive day of crafty fun. The Crafty Ballyhoo will be held Sunday May 15th from 11am-6pm, Grant-Humphreys Mansion at 770 Pennsylvania Street, Denver, in the Central Denver area. The first 50 people through the door will receive a swag bag full of handmade goodies! Oh, and if you want to be a vendor, applications are due tomorrow, March 12th!! And Fashion Denver's Spring Market, SPROUT, will also take place at the mansion the same day! Cool stuff.

Happy weekend to everyone! Enjoy the sun.
