Life is like a baseball game where the pitcher is constantly throwing you curveballs. As this is the case, do you want to simply be a spectator, or do you want to get in the game and face life head-on? Although it may sound simple sometimes, life is not an easy game to play. There are many challenges to overcome and many choices you have to make. None of you have a choice as to how you come into the world; however, you do have a choice as to the kind of life you live. Follow David in Life Is Too Short: Life Is What We Make It, and find out for yourself how you too can knock life's curveballs out of the park.

Who is Handmade City?

We are an indie arts + crafts collective that supports and promotes local handmade artisans. We pride ourselves in being different and creating unique, high quality handmade items. Living in the Midwest we are surrounded by traditional craft shows with the same art and items you can find anywhere. We decided it was time set up our own DIY collective and host our own events.

Handmade City provides an outlet for artists who don't belong in a traditional show. We host art & craft events that are free to attend, affordable to sell at and unique compared to other craft shows in the area. We appreciate handmade, high quality art with an indie twist!

Handmade City supports this art community online as well, showcasing featured artist interviews, vendor spotlights, artist updates and links to artists’ shops. We want our handmade items to be just as available to the public as traditional art & crafts. Different is good, different is art!

When is the next show?

Handmade City’s Holiday 2011 Craft Show will take place December 3rd, 2011, from 11am – 4pm at Rozz-Tox– a new venue located downtown Rock Island Illinois. (2108 3rd Avenue) This show is FREE to attend!
There will be over 20 vendors! Things you will find include: knits, ceramics, art prints, original artwork, photography, home decor items, jewelry, hand-spun yarn, candles, pet goods, terrariums, accessories, baby items, handmade handbags, clothing, handcrafted bicycles, self-published books & more!
