This event is now closed. If you're still interested in the VIP Gala, we still have some tickets available for purchase. And after I give you a few more details about the event, you're certainly going to want a ticket.
Here's what makes our VIP Gala so great:
1) Relaxed shopping atmosphere. We're expecting a very large attendance on Saturday and Sunday, which means crowded aisles and limited access to all the artists. When it comes to the variety and extent of the artists' work, Friday night is definitely the best to get it. We frequently have artists sell out of goods before the festival even ends, so if you want the best selection, get it on Friday night.
2) Giveaways! Our artists have gone above and beyond this year in donating work to our giveaway baskets. We have 15 baskets assembled---each one is worth over $100. Some are worth almost $200. The lucky winners of these baskets will be going home with a lot of loot. Besides the baskets, we're also giving away around 100 other items that evening. Both Lark Crafts and MailChimp (Yes, thank you sponsors!) have generously donated crafting books and swag for attendees to take home.
3) Free Food and Drink. We've received the menu from our amazing caterer, Chef 360, and the food is going to be out of this world. The incredibly talented Chef Peter has worked up quite the menu for us---As artful as it is tasty. He's hinted at pork sliders and lo mein shooters on the menu...and something really amazing he's making from Krispy Kreme donuts. Not to mention, we have a special appearance from The Vagabond Barista---who'll delight us with some of the latest trends in coffee brewing. Will Schurtz will brew specialty coffee to order for our attendees, and his techniques are unparalleled for enjoying your coffee. Additionally, a variety of beverages will be provided by The Community Tap.
4) Live Music from Regional Band: The New Empires. We've secured The New Empires for entertainment on Friday night. Their fun, indie tunes are sure to round out the evening perfectly!
It's not too late. Get your tickets here!
