No plans for the weekend?

Well, we've got your Saturday worked out for you! Saturday, 1 March, Quarterfield Elementary School will be the site of a one-day craft fair. Our own Amy C., Amy Y., and Anita will be participating, along with a great variety of other crafters.

To get a sneak peak at their products, check out their shops - you may find Amy C.'s work under the link for Amy's Creative Designs, Amy Y.'s work at Bella's Boutique and Anita's work at Miscelena Papercrafts.

As you find yourself preparing for spring holidays, consider the added beauty and charm of presenting your gift in a handmade box with a one-of-a-kind card.
Custom orders are accepted online or in-person.

This will be a one-day only event, running from 9am - 3pm. Quarterfield Elementary School is located at 7967 Quarterfield Road, Severn, MD 21144. The school office is available to offer directions until 4pm on Friday, and can be reached at (410) 222-6430.

We hope to see you there!

Hello and Welcome

Welcome to the inaugural post for the CRESTcraft blog! We're a small group who are a part of the much larger Etsy CREST team. What is Etsy and what is Crest? Etsy is a retail website offering an opportunity for artisans and handcrafters to connect with conscientious shoppers seeking unique, personal handmade items.
CREST is the Capital Region Etsy Street Team - a collection of artists and artisans from Washington, D.C., Maryland, and the Virginias.
Our next big event where the CRESTcraft mini-team will be together will be April 12-13, at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, just North of Baltimore. We will individually be appearing at a variety of shows throughout the spring and summer - you'll find announcements and updates throughout our individual posts.
Our individual sites are listed to the left, so settle in and enjoy a few moments click-through of our shops and wares.
