Urban Craft Uprising

December 4th & 5th
seattle center exhibition hall
10am – 6pm saturday; 10am – 5pm sunday

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.

The entire weekend was my favorite, yes? I did have a great moment with a shopper I met at Issaquah Salmon Days. She showed up to UCU with her girlfriends, wine in hand & several shopping bags:) She came on Friday because I promised her it would be amazing & she was SO happy she did! I feel like I earned her trust at that moment & gained a longtime customer. Also, I had amazing booth neighbors! So many many great moments helping each other out & celebrating during pack up on Sunday. Every year I get to do this show I leave feeling like I’ve made new friends & expanded my community.
