Every year we fall short. The good news is Phoenix is home to a plethora of creative types who actually can sew or carve wood, and for one night a year their pieces gather in one convenient craft haven.
For the eighth year in a row, Frances presents Crafeteria, a market of more than 40 local artists boasting a variety of 100 percent handmade goods. There will be earthy jewelry from MerMade, cute cards from Floating Specks, and even wood carved tobacco pipes from Maple House.
Hot dogs from Short Leash and Stinkweeds-sponsored live music round out the night, making it a multi-sensory affair.
Get crafty from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, December 6, in the Medlock Plaza, 10 West Camelback Road. Visit www.francessmeeks.com/crafeteria.
