I booked an apartment in Ukranian Village through Airbnb that was super close to our Renegade Craft Fair. It was handy to be close by, but we weren't close enough to be able to leave the car parked and walk from the apartment with booth set-up and supplies. Parking was sometimes difficult to find, especially on Saturday and Sunday.
The craft fair was amazing. Vendors were top notch, everything seemed mostly well-organized and well-planned. I really enjoy meeting folks and talking to them about needle felting, and I love meeting fellow felters as well! I introduced some prints of wool paintings to the Chicago audience, and these will be lauching on my website very soon. (If you'd like to know when, just sign up for my mailing list on the left side of this page.)
On Tuesday, I taught a DIY Wool Painting class at The Niche Lab, which is a new venue that is going to be a very cool space for the community. If you're in the Chicago area, they are having their Grand Opening on October 3rd. Definitely check them out. I had so much fun teaching this sold out class, and I think all my students were enjoying themselves too!
