Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.
The caffeinated, sugar-induced craft bonanza that is Coffee, Cookies & Crafts will usher in a marathon of holiday-themed gifts, craft supplies, and interactive activities in Downtown's Bragg's Pie Factory.
And while the event's November 19
date isn't quite past the threshold of "accepted beginning of post-Thanksgiving holiday pandemonium," we'll be the first to say we can't wait to get our hands on some felted ornaments, DIY Dreidles, and all kinds of letterpress greetings (we're looking at you Hazel
More info and the craft vendor list after the jump ...
The fifth indie craft event will include tables with goods and demos from local creatives including annieWHERE, Chain Theory, Corona Couture, Crafty Modern/Stanley Moon's, Hazel & Violet Ink, merMadison, Moderncat Studio, Patty Lewis Glass Artist, Space Boy Robot, Space Cadet, Starving Artist Bazaar, Sticker Club Girl, Strawberry Hedgehog, Studio Artology, and Urban Adornments (to name a few). Event organizers are running profiles and photo collections from each vendor on the CCC website
Also on the noon to 5 p.m. schedule are tables open for craft supply swaps and a community craft activity, the Spring Board section for vendors under 18 years old, as well as snacks and coffee from Jobot Coffee Shop and sweets from local bakeries in the pop-up lounge. (We also hear the Pizza People food truck will be parked outside.)
Bragg's Pie Factory
is at 1301 W Grand Avenue in downtown Phoenix. Attendance and parking are free. For more information, check out the event's Facebook page

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
