Thanks to seibuone for pointing me to a recent Columbus Underground podcast where two resident craft superstars talk about the indie, handmade community here in the Cbus. You can listen to Olivera Bratich of Wholly Craft and Amy Dalrymple of AmyD here.

They discuss valuable resources that are accessible to any crafter here in town as well as some upcoming events. One that I had never heard of but plan on attending, Agora 6, is on May 16 at Junctionview Studios (the same site of my favorite annual indie market, Tiny Canary). Here are some links to the events they discussed:

Agora 6 – May 16
Comfest – June 26-28
Handmade Expo at the Ohio State Fair – August 8

They spoke a lot about the Columbus Crafty Cotillion which, again, I had never heard of. (Apparently I live under a rock.)

The Columbus Crafty Cotillion is a collective of artists, crafters, and designers in the Columbus, Ohio area. We have monthly meet-ups, social events, craft swaps, and email discussions. We are an inclusive group with no membership dues and new members are always welcome!

I will definitely have to check out one of the monthly meet-ups when I get my Etsy shop off the ground. Our local community of crafters is pretty impressive.
