ABCD

March 18, 2010

I attended my first Artists + Bloggers + Crafters + Designers (ABCD) meet up tonight. Established by Stephanie Bond of Bondville and Kim Wallace of Udessi, this regular and informal get together has become an event looked forward to by many of the designer-makers in the Brisbane craft and design scene.

Hosted at various venues around Brisbane, tonight we met at the stunning Brisbane Powerhouse in the Spark Bar. Most guests brought something for the infamous ABCD goodie bag and I included some of my wallpaper samples as origami fortune tellers.

Everyone was really friendly and wanted to talk about the issues, joys and frustrations of working in isolation, how to get your business to the point where you can give up your ‘day job’, what’s happening in the local and national craft markets and much more.

Stay tuned to Steph’s blog to find out when the next event will be on. I thoroughly recommend it to all crafters as meetings like this really take crafting out of isolation and back to a community focus.
