A Family Affair: Tips and Treats with the SF Craft Mafia offers local businesses and designers the perfect chance to network as well as fabulous opportunities to gain new, crafty skills.
Stitch Lounge—a member of SFCM—will sponsor and host, A Family Affair on August 12, 2-6pm, and feature a number of work stations to pick up jewelry-making tips, work on selected patterns from Stitch Lounge’s published guide to clothing customization, Sew Subversive, embellish and bedazzle garments with an assortment of buttons, beads, and sequins, and decorate delicious cupcakes. Business owners and designers can mingle over treats and exchange their own business tips and experiences.
The San Francisco Craft Mafia (SFCM) is a collective of San Francisco-based small business owners and artists committed to the promotion and growth of the independent handmade business community of the Bay Area and beyond. SFCM provides focused support for growing business ventures, a viable space and forum to network and share ideas and experiences, as well as exceptional community and shopping events. SFCM models itself after the first Craft Mafia in Austin, Texas, where a small group of crafters joined together in 2003 to support one other in their crafty business endeavors. SFCM is one of 47 active Craft Mafia chapters across the country and in Great Britain.
