Uptown Urban Craft is now a member of Handmade MN, and great association of artists, crafters, and etsy sellers all from Minnesota. They are also the official Etsy street team for Minnesota. Last Friday I went to an Etsy party at Crafty Planet and met several of the women who are members and they are all just great! (Also, a quick shout out to my husband who attended with me & was such a trouper to hang out with all of us chicks. You're the best Babe!) Handmade MN's blog is a great support source for local artist and they do craft shows & their blog is a great way to shop and support local independent artists! I look forward to being a part of the team!
