When I moved to Ann Arbor 6 months ago, I was looking for an artist/crafty community I can join and be part of. I discovered MICE, which stands for Michigan Indie Crafters of Etsy, and from there I was able to meet alot of wonderful crafty people in the area.
And now, there is a creative space opening up, called Blue House Ann Arbor, which sits right across the street from The Big House (and for those of you who don't know, its the University of Michigan stadium.) It is a crafty place where there are workshops and events, work from local artists, and they are celebrating their opening this weekend with a show, Saturday March 20th, from 11-5pm.
I will be there at the show with some of my art prints and goodies. I can't wait to see the space, and please come by if you are in the area.
