I can’t use any other word to describe this past Saturday! It was everything that the 3 of us dreamed of and more, to say the least. We can’t even begin to thank our volunteers, vendors, sponsors, family and friends who were out in full force to make our 3rd Annual Not Yo Mama’s Craft Fair the success that it was. It was exhilarating, exciting and exhausting, but in the end, it was all worth it! And yes, Leah, Megan and I each had to spend all of Sunday recuperating.
We estimated about 1500 in attendance (probably more, since people were entering through the sides) and with the proceeds we were able to raise $1000 for Peace by Piece Studio.
We’ll be posting pictures soon, so keep an eye out! In the meantime, check out the write up and pictures from Jersey City Independent!
Three years ago, Not Yo Mama’s Craft Fair had its humble (but wildly successful) beginnings at Jersey City’s one and only LITM! (140 Newark Ave, Jersey City, NJ 07302) Although I wasn’t one of the organizers at the time, I did manage to be one of the first hundred through the door and nab myself a cool little swag bag full of goodies! It was so awesome to be a part of what I knew would become Jersey City history…
So tomorrow night, June 16th, in honor of returning to our roots, we’re having an “NYM Craft Fair Kick-off” celebration and fundraising event for our charity partner Peace by Piece Studio at our old stomping grounds! From 6-10 pm Megan, Leah and I will be there schmoozing with our local vendors, drinking LITM’s handCRAFTed seasonal cocktails and refreshing CRAFT beers!
Peace by Piece Studio is having an outdoor workshop at the Craft Fair and we’ll also be accepting donations for:
- Fabric (old clothing, sheets, comforters, etc..)
- sewing needles & threads
- used (working) sewing machines
- Scissors, Rulers, bobbins
- Any other misc. sewing supplies
Come celebrate 3 amazing years with the Not Yo Mama’s Ladies and get good Karma while your at it!
We will also have volunteer sign up sheets for those of you who’d like additional good karma 😉
See you there!
