Looking for a few good craft shows around the holidays.  I'm doing Corkfest.  Anyone else out there doing some cool shows?

I finally have my Etsy site up and running!  Please take a moment to look, all proceeds go towards helping my dad in the hospital!  (He's been at UNM and a couple other facilities in Albuquerque for over 5 months now due to severe pancreatitis.)

Hi. I'm new to ABQ. I'd like to take a silver-smithing class (I make jewelry) and also learn how to crochet. Any suggestions? Thanks!

If there is anyone on here who does tapestry weaving or wants to, I would love to find a weaving buddy.  I just built a copper loom and am trying to learn via books, etc.  Any company, novice or otherwise would be excellent!
