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!
