ANNOUNCING HANDMADE ARCADE 2014 ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2014!!
It’s official! Handmade Arcade will be returning to the David L. Lawrence Convention Center for our 11th year.
Date: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2014
Time: 11am to 7pm
Place: David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Downtown Pittsburgh
Handmade Arcade, Pittsburgh’s largest indie-craft sale, will return to the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. The annual Handmade Arcade was created eleven years ago to give grassroots, independent crafters an opportunity to show and sell their wares, and to provide an alternative to traditional craft and art fairs. Stay tuned for application details and more!
WHAT A DAY! A day that could not have been possible without the efforts of so many artists and makers, Hands-on Handmaders, sponsors, volunteers, Convention Center staffers, music makers and curators, entertainers, and, of course, shoppers! We are so thankful for everyone who was a part of our massive 10th show. Stay tuned for images of the days events and the announcement of HA:2014′s date!
THANK YOU PITTSBURGH!
An exciting morning spent in City Council Chambers! Here is a glimpse of today’s adventures: receiving the official proclamation for December 7th to be “Handmade Arcade Day,” being serenaded by The Pittsburgh Banjo Club and being interviewed by KQV news radio! Thank you to Council member Natalia Rudiak for sponsoring the proclamation (and for her great words about Handmade Arcade!) and to all of you for your tremendous support & inspiration over the past decade!
Share your love of ALL kinds of craft with our special 2013 pint glass!
All Early Birdie ticketholders will receive one of these beauts in their goodie bags, and we’ll have a limited number for sale at the merch table, too. Get your Early Birdie tickets online or at Wildcard (4209 Butler Street in Lawrenceville).
ELECTRICITY: An “E” beside your space means that you requested electricity. If there is not an “E” and you did request electricity before the deadline, please email firstname.lastname@example.org immediately. (Requests for electricity can no longer be submitted and are only honored if your craft requires electricity.)
TABLE REQUESTS: There is an “N” beside your space if you asked to not have a table set up. If you requested to not have a table and your space is NOT marked with an “N”, please email us. Conversely, if there is a “N” beside your space and you DO need a table, let us know immediately.
We did our best to honor all table placement requests that were made. At this time, we cannot move anyone’s table. We can’t wait to see you and your amazing crafts on December 7th!
