After all the planning and coordinating the day has finally come! Over 30 different multi-talented souls got together and to create this epic event, setting the stage for what will be an ongoing trend towards shopping local and handmade for the holidays.
We think this is the central focus of why we are doing what we are doing. Yes, it is a shopping event. But it means so much more.
By buying handmade, you are countering the direct consequences of mass production, which has a negative effect on our neighborhoods.
Events like the Holiday Handmade Cavalcade will only help spread the belief that shopping local and handmade is one way to save our community. Supporting local artisans is about helping out neighbors and keeping the city vibrant.
And organizing this event is no small feat. This group is all about getting involved to develop one another's creative and business potential. Today when you visit us at the Knitting Factory, you'll see the fruits of all that hard work, both on the business side and on the creative side. Each and every single item for sale has been created by the artists themselves.
So please come join us for our inaugural holiday event. There will be music and martinis, cupcakes and creative gifts for sale. And if you're feeling generous, you may want to donate to the good folks at NOCC, just by getting your gifts wrapped.
We hope that you will take part in what will be a festive and fun day for all, and we truly look forward to seeing you there!
