Richmond Craft Mafia

About the Richmond Craft Mafia:

Representatives of four major craft families gathered to discuss business in the summer of 2005. There was much to talk about. The powers that be had made things difficult for organized craft in Richmond, Virginia. A lack of networking outlets for independent crafty business owners and a public under the spell of mass production led these four to forge a partnership. They would become known as the Richmond Craft Mafia...

Inspired by our Austin namesake, the Richmond Craft Mafia is a supportive community of like minded artists. We provide information as well as promotional and marketing opportunities for independent crafty business owners. The Richmond Craft Mafia is currently comprised of about a dozen craft artists, whose works represents the full-spectrum of craft from fiber to pottery to prints to jewelry. The Richmond Craft Mafia puts on two annual Indie Craft Shows: Spring Bada-Bing and the Handmade Holiday Trunk Show. The Richmond Craft Mafia's jewelry designers include: Maryellen Kim of Twist Style, Adrien Hamilton and Kate Poroszok of Keen Designs, Nicole Sarvay of Nicole Sarvay Designs, Dawn Anderson of Lark Studio and Tasha McKelvey.
