Patchwork Indie Arts and Crafts Festival
My husband, daughter, and I decided to go online to OCWeekly.com out of sheer boredom this past weekend and we stumbled upon the Patchwork Indie Arts and Crafts Festival in Santa Ana. There were only two hours left until closing, but we decided to go anyway (it WAS free, after all). I am SO glad we did.
The festival was filled with brilliant and innovative local artists, crafters and designers. I noticed many of them were Etsy sellers. I was in heaven as I was surrounded by unique handmade items such as, repurposed wine bottles into lighting fixtures and children’s books into notebooks, cool personalized bike bells, and whimsical wooden wind chimes to name a few.
Bombarded with the sights and smells of live music, sweet treats, and creativity, I immediately signed up on the emailing list. Click here for future events.
