Make It Vancouver 2010

Comments 4 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Make It returns to Vancouver this weekend taking over the Croatian Cultural centre with crafty fashions, accessories and art.

Make It is the largest event of its kind in Western Canada. It is an upbeat experience that gives enlightened shoppers the opportunity to buy directly from Canada’s top urban artisans and designers! Craft Show + Party = Make It!

    I’m guessing they mean the first 20 people at the door on the first day? Thanks so much for this post – I would have totally missed it this year had you not reminded us!

    This looks like an awesome show. Send it to Toronto! Heh. I love artisan shows; one of the best parts of music festivals. Some of those notebooks look lovely : )

    Now excuse me while I fly to Vancouver and mention Miss604 at the door!

    Thx for posting my books up on the top. So cool to see them. This is an awesome show and super fun to attend. I am always blow away at what some of the other artists bring.
