I'm not sure if Cambridge is really *that* wild, but we will be out at several fairs in the next few weeks.
Halloween cards? Check.
Boston Park Sketches? Check.
Holiday cards? Taking orders.
Brand-spanking-new "Dear Mom and Dad I Joined the Circus" t-shirts and tote bags? In production.
Oktoberfest - our favorite German contribution since weinerschnitzl. Brave throngs of people (supposedly over 100,000), visit over 200 craft vendors, plus buy all the funnel cake and fair food you can eat, and, of course, beer (if you like being sardined into the teeny tiny little areas cordoned off for such public debauchery). Live music at several sound stages, and even pumpkin carving and other family friendly events (I hope I'm near that area...). Rain date - October 14.
Arts Central is Central Square's answer to Oktoberfest, minus the debauchery. Oodles of local businesses will have art installations up for the weekend, there will be two main sound stages for live music, plus all us funky craft folk. Rain or shine!
Though not until December, I'm too excited not to mention that Albertine Press was accepted into the highly competitive holiday alterna-craft fair - Bazaar Bizarre - in both Boston AND San Francisco!!! Marisa Escolar (my sometime partner in crime) will be heading up the SF branch of things, selling our cards along with her own fabu original prints (the new stuff is just amazing!).
And I'm so delighted to announce that Marisa will be visiting Boston for a whole week to work on some collaborative projects - starting next Thursday! So if you want to meet the brains behind the "Circus" cards and much, much more, come see us at Oktoberfest.
