These napkin sets, table runners and quilts are made by two sisters right here in Oregon!
I make a regular habit of getting the hospital takeout kit for baby showers, and I always win! She is highly skilled at making the cutest things that never fall apart, and you can find her, along with me and 180 other vendors at this Sunday's Crafty Wonderland Holiday Show!

as Sister Diane of DIY alert sez:
Winter Wonderland Indeed!
You know Portland's craft culture has arrived when our beloved Crafty Wonderland holds its Super Colossal Holiday Sale at the Oregon Convention Center. Yup, it's that big.
If you attended last year's sale, you know that this Sunday will offer a mind-blowing array of creative locals, selling all kinds of awesome. The first 200 people through the door get goodie bags! And the OCC will give us all plenty of room to shop and chat. Get all the details over here.

I'm very excited to be selling my goods at Handmade NW's super fancy, elegant & lovely craft show & sale this Sunday! Stop by to say "Hi."
Why formal? It's in a historic 1920's ballroom, with live classical music. A wide range of local artisans will be there, and once you've selected your gifts, you can stop by the gift-wrapping table and get them all packaged up. Proceeds from the gift wrapping, by the way, will benefit Habitat for Humanity.

Autumn's from Portland, so I've had the good fortune of picking up some delightful candles from her at one of the many, many craft shows she does. And let me tell you this- her prices are eye-poppingly great! Here is example of getting very nice, and nice-looking gifts that deliver great bang for your buck! Just try not to bite into the blueberry cheesecake one- I dare you!
