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.

I just wanted to take a moment to again personally thank you for all of your hard work in putting this show together! I had such a wonderful time and was amazed at how organized and seamless everything ran. From the loading/unloading to the volunteers, the customers who attended seemed like loyal show goer’s and the caliber of talented and unique vendors I was honored to be a part of. My social media #’s jumped noticeably as compared to other shows I’ve done and I had repeat customers coming back both days to purchase more goodies. Traveling 12 hours to attend this event, I truly could not have hoped for a better experience. I definitely felt the appreciation you have for your vendors and because of that this show has jumped to my #1 event to try and be a part of in the future. Thank you for allowing me to a part of an event that helped inspire me to keep striving and working hard.
