How you can help the Detroit Urban Craft Fair

I’ve been getting a few requests about how people can help DUCF. We absolutely need volunteers during this crunch time. Here are some ways you can help:

1. Attend the volunteer meeting at 2 p.m. on July 29th in the Magic Stick. We’ll be assembling swag bags and signing volunteers up for DUCF-day volunteer tasks. There will also be pizza!

2. If you can’t attend the meeting, but still want to help on DUCF day, get in touch: handmadedetroit {AT!} yahoo {DOT!} com.

3. You can steal this image, for your blog, MySpace or other online fun:


4. You can link to this post.

5. You can hang posters/distribute flyers in your neighborhood. Posters can be picked up during the day, Mon-Wed or Friday from Carey @ the Garden Bowl, 4120 Woodward Heights in Detroit.

6. You can still submit swag and raffle donations until FRIDAY, JULY 27. This is our in hands date. E-mail for more info.

7. You can post this short message on any forums you frequent:

“Handmade Detroit presents the second Detroit Urban Craft Fair from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, August 4 at the Majestic Theater. This year’s fair features 61 vendors, a make and take area, a “real” art show in the Cafe, raffles and an after party. Free to enter. All ages. More details at”

8. You can grab a banner or print up some flyers from the DUCF promo page.

Or post a link to the DUCF site:

9. You can simply tell your friends. Friends + DUCF= fun.

Thanks so much!

The tired, but very, very excited DUCF crew
