I have been a member of the Stitch’n’Kitsch collective since my first year in business 7 years ago. I am so proud of how long we’ve been around and how much we have evolved as a group.
Here is the press release announcing our upcoming show on May 1, 2010. If you’re in the Waterloo, Ontario area, I hope you can make it!
Waterloo, Ontario – Apr 07, 2010 – In our efforts to support local sustainable businesses, the Stitch’n’Kitsch Spring Show and Sale is the perfect opportunity to get to know some of our regional gems. You don’t have to worry about fair-trade practices, carbon footprints or child labor when you purchase from this craft collective. It has one rule – everything is handmade. It is free and runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 1 at First United Church, corner of King and William, Uptown Waterloo.
The Stitch’n’Kitsch collective began in 2004 as part of a greater indie craft movement that has been sweeping North America. This movement strives to replace mass produced imports for local, handmade goods. The collective is a group of artisans that meet monthly to organize their biannual shows. They carefully select each show’s 20 to 30 guest artists with attention to uniqueness and quality.
The upcoming show promises to have something for everyone with an array of jewelry, natural body care, paper goods, toys, fashion, accessories, pottery, and handspun yarns.
