Craft Party - Meet Our Sponsors: Bazaar Bizarre & CCE

One of the great things about working with I Heart Art: San Francisco is all the connections that we're making in the Bay Area's creative community. And what's even better is when people from within that community decide that they'd like to become more involved with helping us out!

And we could always use a little help from our friends!

In conjunction with our Craft Party that we're throwing on Friday, June 10th, we'd like you to get to know some of the folks that will be sponsoring various activities! To help us all get our craft on, here's a little more about Bazaar Bizarre San Francisco!

Bazaar Bizarre San Francisco
One of the premiere craft presences
in the Bay Area
Bazaar Bizarre began in 2001 in the Boston-area as an offbeat entertainment extravaganza to showcase the DIY movement and handmade goods. Bazaar Bizarre has spread across the nation to cities such as Los Angeles, Cleveland, Maker Faire Bay Area and Austin. Bazaar Bizarre San Francisco is a Handmade market, Indie entertainment extravaganza and D.I.Y. Festival all under one roof!

In addition to throwing some of the best craft events in San Francisco, Bazaar Bizarre SF hosts a blog with listings for shows all over the SF Bay Area, crafty business advice and information about our upcoming shows. You can read about them here!

And from the local geniuses that brought you Bazaar Bizarre San Francisco, we have the Conference of Creative Entrepreneurs!

Learn how to turn your passion into your living at the second annual Conference of Creative Entrepreneurs!  This year’s event will take place August 5th-7th 2011 in beautiful San Francisco. 

We’ll be meeting at one of the city’s most inspiring spaces: the San Francisco Women’s Building, situated right in the heart of the bustling Mission District.

CCE is offering three days of learning with some of today’s most successful creative entrepreneurs, so whether you’re trying to start, grow, or manage a creative business, you’ll always find a session that’s right for you. CCE is appropriate for all current or aspiring creative professionals, including fine artists, designers, illustrators, crafters, food artists, and more. They're proud to say that 100% of last year’s surveyed attendees said they would recommend CCE to a friend, so make sure to secure your spot early for this year’s conference.

Representatives from both Bazaar Bizarre SF and CCE will be joining us on Friday for CRAFT PARTY! They'll be leading two Craft Tables with fun activities:
