Join the handmade revolution this Spring in three cities across the West.

Being crafty and buying locally handmade products is a trend that just keeps on giving. Craft fair Make It! is back by popular demand this Spring for its biannual show, featuring over a week of local products, community building and creativity in three cities: Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. Created by brother-sister team Jenna and Chandler Herbut in 2008, the show is based on the idea that anyone can be creative (more and more customers return to the fair as "Makies" themselves to sell their own handmade products each year), and that becoming involved in your artistic community promotes the local economy and the arts and culture scene in your city.
