Craftaluma, "The greatest show on earth"

The Petaluma Craft Mafia is hosting it's first craft show this summer (exact date and time TBA). We're very excited to announce "Craftaluma" the Greatest Show on Earth." Or, at least we're gonna knock ourselves out trying to make it the greatest craft show west of the Mississippi! I know we've got our work cut out for us.

We plan to have a live band, carnival concessions and maybe a fortune teller/palm reader. Actually I just thought of that. But hey, whats a carnival craft show without a fortune teller? I've had this carnival theme since the holidays, and believe it may have inspired a scary clown dream I had a few weeks ago. Why is it clowns can be so scary?

We'll post more info and online applications once we get things finalized. In the meantime, we just wanted to invite our crafty mafia famiglia and all you other crafty types to Craftaluma, here in the land of butter and eggs which is Petaluma.

Crafty sisters, please send us your awesome swag, cards, postcards, samples etc. Dress us up in your crafty goodness. General admission to crafty shoppers is $1.00. Raffle tickets are available.

Just don't send in the clowns!

Contact for more info.
