reetsweet 2012: campaigning against crap craft
Okay, it's time to level with you all, we've all been there, we've been to shoddy shops selling badly crocheted hats, or gone to a craft fair that seems full to the brim of a load of badly stitched hair accessories, falling apart christmas tree decorations etc - at reetsweet we are campaigning this year against crap craft. (If you want inspiration for what we mean, have a look at regretsy, one of the funniest things I have read in ages and you'll catch my drift.)
There are many fairs cropping up, and lots of people jumping on the crafty bandwagon in mainstream shops, but at reetsweet we will continue to book only the brightest, and the best makers - and sift through the rubbish to bring you a fair that's really worth a free visit to! Giving a much needed platform for new designer/makers in your area.
Come and see us this saturday 11th feb from 10am to 5pm at the leeds corn exchange, just a 2minute walk from briggate...not in Leeds this weekend? Then come to Sheffield next month for our next event on March 10th at the Millenium Gallery - 2 minutes from the train station...you know it makes sense!
