Urban Craft Uprising

june 27th & 28th
seattle center exhibition hall
11am – 5pm both days

Some backstory about our show: Urban Craft Uprising was founded in 2005 to showcase the work of independent crafters, artists and designers — to provide a unique, high quality, hand-crafted alternative to “big box” stores and mass produced goods.

Since its early beginnings at its first holiday show with just 50 crafter booths and overflowing crowds, Urban Craft Uprising now holds the largest indie craft event in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest with its Winter Show.  In 2009, Urban Craft Uprising expanded its horizons to include a summer show, which has now also become an annual event, in conjunction with an exclusive wholesale event which allows our vendors to connect directly with wholesale buyers.

Urban Craft Uprising aims to build a local (and beyond) community of artists, crafters and designers by organizing and providing events where indie crafters and artists can connect with their fans. In addition, Urban Craft Uprising promotes other community building activities, including our crafting shows, showcases, classes, events, Camp ThunderCraft, sponsorships, online presence and other local activities.

[My favorite memory was the] new milestones! I can’t pick one favorite moment: beating my previous sales record, getting my first wholesale order, being featured on the Design Milk IG page (presumably due to UCU’s promotion), and of course, talking with customers who were purchasing my kits as a means of self-care or self-discovery. It was rewarding to be able to connect my months of creative work with the customers who would ultimately reap the biggest benefits.
