Goodbye for now

It is was much regret that we are announcing our decision to close down the Burlington Craft Mafia. Due to financial reasons and other restrictions we will no longer be associating ourselves with the name.

However Erinn and I are still very busy crafting and don't be surprised if you see us pop up again with a new name. I have a new blog in the works which will carry on the handmade mission we worked so hard to build. We still hold strong to the values of creating a community of like minded crafters, providing resource and business knowledge, and pushing the handmade mission in Vermont. Our new venture will this time include ALL of Vermont and not just Burlington.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us and and our events over the past 3 years.

We will be sharing a booth at the Women's Festival of Crafts on Nov 29th and 30th at City Hall in Burlington. Stop by and say hello.

Stay tuned for what we have in store next . . .

Visit my store at, Your House for Indie Fashion

Smashing Darling is now home to Subsixstudios products. I opened up my shop with them yesterday and I have been nothing but pleased with their website and the selection of indie designers they sell. While you are checking out my new shop you can also sign up for RSS feed or email notifications of when I add new items. I just added two new reusable market totes and look for new earrings and other jewelry in July.
