Citizens, do not get snowed. You now have four days left to apply for City of Craft 2011 (including today).

From the artist:
The Craft Toronto photo pool is a rolling stream of craft projects being made in the city (and thereabouts). It is an initiative hosted by City of Craft and reflects more makers than any of our real-world events ever could. What's more? You can join!
These are made from silver lame fabric and plastic food containers for the transparent fins.
The eyes are made from silver chocolate wrapping for the sclera and bicycle innertube rubber for the pupils, held together with globs of transparent plastic glue to give it dimension and a glossy, wet eye look.
Greetings, Citizens, just checking in to share news from some friends in the book arts, comix and literature worlds:
Until the next big thing comes along, we are on facebook. This is just a wee nudge to remind you all of that fact.
You now have two weeks left to get your vendor applications in for City of Craft 2011, our ever-awesome December show.
Citizens, guess what! We have managed to finagle a brand new element to the show for 2011. We will be kicking our dusty old raffle to the curb in favour of a much more fast-paced, instant-gratification, everyone-wins, prize-winning activity - NUTSO!
It has come time to nail down our awesome sponsors for 2011. And that could be you! That's right, the 2011 Sponsorship Package is now ready and offers multiple ways to get involved with City of Craft if you can't be a vendor (or even if you can).

Just dropping in to put a big bug in your collective ear about this coming weekend's Bloorcourt Arts and Crafts Street Fair. The show is chock full of former City of Craft vendors and friendlies and is organized by one of our co-founders, Jen Anisef. The astute among you may also pick up our 2011 designer, Sandi's hand at work in all of their posters. And...um...amateur wrestling? I can't think of a better way to defy the dog days of summer (and maybe get the jump on some back-to-school shopping).

This just in! City of Craft vendor and pal, rc boisjoli, is searching for a crack team of designers with whom to engage in collaboration. The Bottled Project is a new initiative by the Toronto ceramics studio to fuse graphic design and porcelain (literally?) by collaborating with ten select designers. Want one of those people to be you? Alexx has both a project run-down and brief on his blog.
I am sorry to break it to you all, citizens, but summer is entering its last month. You know what that means? There is now one month left to apply to City of Craft 2011. Do not dally and do not delay. We feel terrible every year when we have to tell folks they missed the jurying deadline. Do not be one of those people. And hey, why not tell your interested friends, too?
Applications close August 31, 2011 at Midnight EST.
