This past weekend I was able to attend the West Coast Craft show that came to San Francisco for the weekend! It featured booths for artisans and makers living or working out of the West Coast. So it was an interesting collection of materials!
It inspired me to start creating again – and I picked up this embroidery project I’ve been contemplating for just about forever. I’ll be sharing it very soon. Many times, local or US made products can’t compete with big name stores and the little people often fall out of business. Seeing people who are making things are who we should be supporting and seeking inspiration from to make our own things.
Onto the show!
A booth full of beautiful and fun knitwear by KKIBO
I loved these very unique and pretty candles.
Local to SF bag and leather goods team Joshu + Vela.
Every single piece of jewelry by Yellowsmith was absolutely something I’d wear!
This poster by Book/Shop was made for me right?!
Last but not least, the incredible booth, or should I say deli by Alite - making you a custom bag at their sandwich counter. You picked the parts and colors and they sewed it right then and there for you!
It was definitely one of the more handmade craft fairs I’ve gone to – lots of knitwear and naturally dyed textiles. So it’s interesting to see people getting back into these lost arts. Have you ever been to something like this?
