Now in it's 9 year, Craftin' Outlaws is an annual 'alternative' craft fair held in Columbus, Ohio. The first event, held in 2005 featured 50 fabulous and original artists, designers, and crafters selling their hip handmade wares to a steady stream of customers who were looking to purchase that one-of-a-kind gift for themselves or a loved one. These aren't your granny's crafts but we've embraced the same methods and techniques that have been used for years, but are putting a modern twist to it.
It was created by Liz Rosino, of Lucky Kat and Blue Diamond Stamps, who has sold at her share of these 'alternative craft fairs' across the country and wanted to bring one to central Ohio. Now being run with the help of a small fantastic team of long-time vendors it continues to grow and support the central Ohio indie craft scene.
