Shoppers’ at Urban Craft Uprising (UCU) annual shows LOVE the opportunity to interact directly with the maker, to learn the story behind the product they’re buying, and to learn about the production process directly from the maker him/herself.
At this year’s UCU virtual show, you’ll not only be able to buy your favorite products directly from these makers (which is one of the best ways you can support these wonderful small businesses who have really been struggling this year without their regular in-person markets) but you’ll also get the experience of “walking into their booth”, via chat or Zoom, all weekend long.
There will also be live demos, interviews, and other events, plus a live help desk running all week long in case you need help accessing any of this technology! By registering for your free ticket to UCU, you’ll automatically entered to win one of the hundreds of door prizes that will be generously donated by UCU vendors and other local foodie businesses and sponsors.
Urban Craft Uprising (UCU) is Seattle’s largest indie craft show. You’ll find a wide variety of hand-crafted goods, including clothing of all types, jewelry, gifts, bags, wallets, buttons, accessories, aprons, children’s goods, toys, housewares, furniture, paper goods, candles, kits, geekery, art, food, and much, much more. Each show is carefully curated and juried to ensure the best mix of crafts and arts, along with quality and originality. This bi-annual show (repeats in spring) features over 150 vendors excelling in the world of craft, art and design. Not only can you peruse the aisles full of vendors, you can also attend hourly crafty book signings and demos. More info: https://www.facebook.com/urbancraftuprising/
