No Coast Craft-o-Rama

This weekend should be a gift-getting frenzy as the No Coast Craft-O-Rama hits the Twin Cities. In fact, Debbie Stoller, of Stich n Bitch and Bust fame, will be signing books from 4-5pm on Friday (which I don’t think I can make) but I expect to be there with bells on Friday night or Saturday morning. Lately I’ve been really into brooches, and have picked up some fabulous ones in felt such as a grrrl skull and crossbones and the state of michigan with a heart for Detroit, as well as some by Carly Stipe in floral designs made of her trademark duct tape stylin’. I’d bought a duct tape purse from her many years back in MI, and was pleased to find when I moved to the Twin Cities that this is where she’s from and I can frequently find her at craft shows and her wares at local stores. There are so many things about colored duct tape in apparel applications is so perfect for me.
