Spores of North-Central Estonia by Leah Buckareff of the Coldsnap Bindery
City of Craft Co-founder, Leah, is far away across the ocean these days but she still remains very much involved with the event - through logistics planning, moral support and, in this case, donations of hand crafted goods (she also has pieces in both Love & Money and For Keeps).
These pinback buttons, faithful non-toxic reproductions of Eastern European scourge-spores, were sent to us direct from Berlin with the express purpose of being used to reward volunteers at the show for their incredible donation of time and enthusiasm. That means the only way to acquire one of these hand-embroidered (and hand painted?) specimens is to lay some of your time down on the line next weekend at the show. And guess what, you are in luck! We still have a few spots to fill. If you would like to volunteer for a shift (2 hours to a million hours, you choose), just email us at cityofcraft at gmail dot com and you will be swiftly connect with our Volunteer Coordinator, Michelle.
Note: Our volunteer staff also get these, so panic not curators, programmers, printers and thugs.
