    New Orleans Craft Mafia

    Taking a cue from the original Craft Mafia that developed in Austin, TX,
    nine New Orleans artisans in various media formed together in June 2005 for mutual support. Current members' skilled areas include jewelry, clothing, accessories, bath & beauty products, and more.

    Membership is now open to other local artisans by application. The
    application can be found online at the group's website,
    http://www.neworleanscraftmafia.com.

    Members will be expected to participate in the email discussion list and
    online forum, sporadic face-to-face meetings, advertising costs, occasional
    markets, and other group activities.

    Please pass this message on to anyone you know who may be interested.

    Just an FYI, we at the New Orleans Craft Mafia made it through Katrina, and although some of us are still scattered around the country or living in FEMA trailers locally, we are forging on and are stronger than ever.

    We launched our new webshop in April...we've got lots of NOLA-related stuff for sale, as well as other cool products. One of the most popular items is the Blue Tarp Messenger Bag.


    I've also just started a Yahoo group for the CreativeNOLA community, which was originally started on Livejournal. My hope is that the group can reach out to more people with interests in all types of art in the New Orleans Metro area.

    Antigravity Magazine is sponsoring the 5th edition of the Alternative Media Expo coming up on Saturday, August 19th. There are so many cool artists and vendors scheduled to be showcasing and selling their work there...it's proof that art and creativity is still alive in NOLA and that those of us who are back want to be here and want to help bring this city back to life, even if that means a slightly different version of the city it once was.

    Support the local arts scene and help rebuild the New New Orleans.
