The 8th Annual Detroit Urban Craft Fair will be December 7th & 8th at the Masonic Temple in Detroit! For more info, visit detroiturbancraftfair.com
The lead up to DUCF is always a nostalgic time. This year has been particularly reflective for me as we pull together the final details of the fair. That’s because this will be my final DUCF as a member of Handmade Detroit – I will be leaving the group at the end of 2012.
The past few years have seen tremendous change for me personally – getting married, having a baby, and, last year, moving to Lansing. Although my passion for Detroit and handmade has never waned, physically moving has opened up fresh opportunities, where I feel I can better serve as a handmade ambassador in my new community.
Handmade Detroit and DUCF will, of course, continue on without me – I’m confident ever-growing and more excellent under the guidance of the remaining four HD ladies.
I am leaving Handmade Detroit with immense pride for the community that we have all (that’s you out there, too) have created over the past 7+ years. I’m not quite ready to say goodbye just yet – so stay tuned post-DUCF for a surely sappy, sentimental final post from me.
In the meantime, I hope you will join me December 1st and 2nd in celebration of our community.
