    Call for Volunteers – Celebration of Craftswoman Needs You

    craftThe 37th annual Celebration of Craftswomen takes place November 27–29 at Fort Mason Center’s Herbst Pavilion. It is a greatly anticipated tradition for us every year, with “Betty’s List” and the San Francisco Bay Times both represented at this unique artisanal holiday shopping extravaganza.

    It makes for a refreshing antidote to all of the box store madness, given the beautiful location right off San Francisco Bay, and the fact that you can buy handcrafted items directly from the talented individuals who made them. The price range is wide, as is the selection, so there is truly something for everyone on your holiday gift list.

    Volunteers are now sought to work at the event. As the organizers share, “The many-hands model of sisterhood makes service work fun. Join us this year as we celebrate each other and the many women that will benefit from your help at The Women’s Building.”

    They are seeking help with office/admin, admissions, “booth sitting,” and set-up and break-down. As you can see, even from the organizational side of things, this is a public group effort. The camaraderie adds to the enjoyment, not to mention the fact that there are some great restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. We have seen many new couples volunteer or otherwise attend the event, and then break for memorable meals overlooking the bay.
