We just met with Rachel Wrightson Naylor, one of the organizers of an amazing new event called TightKnit that is very similar to our giveHANDMADE CRAFTSTRAVAGANZA. TightKnit starts off with Troy Night Out on the so called “biggest shopping day of the year (aka “black friday”) as a welcome alternative to busy malls and people fighting over the new elmo doll.
You’ve heard of simultaneous discoveries? Breakthroughs in science that happen independently… most famously, the patent for the telephone was filed on the same day.
Well perhaps this doesn’t apply to area arts events… but you get the idea.- we just discovered each other’s efforts a couple weeks ago… fortunately our events were planned to take place on complimentary dates and we were able to work quickly to meet up and put our heads together.
Rachel is really great and it was really encouraging and inspiring to explore how we can work together. Rachel (TNO Vacant Storefront Artist Project/ How to Rebuild Zine) is working with Zhenelle Falk (Born Ready Zine/ Destroy, New York) to bring you TightKnit 2 times each year.
The good news… They are still accepting vendors for their show, so apply before it’s too late.
