We love creativity. We love the handmade. We do find a pretty good, if not overwhelming, amount of it online – and that makes us excited. But we want more! We want to be able to SEE the creativity, FEEL the products, and TALK about them with the creators. We want to connect with people around the Midwest and Fargo, ND who have the drive and appreciation for the creatively handmade and give them a market that is bursting at the seams, waiting for something like Unglued to happen here.
Unglued grew out of a small group of friends working 9-5 jobs and meeting up late at night to sew and be creative. As some started to sell their new-found creativity online and at traditional craft fairs…and after a crazy road trip to Des Moines…we were inspired to grow this creative community in whatever ways we could here in Fargo, ND! Along the way we met others doing amazing work but not being crazy successful at traditional fairs and venues. In a couple months we pulled together Fargo’s first-ever indie (“modern”) craft fair – Unglued: Craft Fest – in 2011 and it was a smashing success!
Our crafters loved having an audience of like-minded creatives and handmade enthusiasts pulled together in one sweet day and the community bought the heck out of this fresh, new take on crafting. Part of the feedback we received was to do multiple fairs a year or open a shop representing these creative wares made by local and regional artisans. We considered the options and decided we would host Unglued: Craft Fest annually to be one big incredible day and to try out a brick and mortar shop downtown Fargo as a pop up in the winter of 2011.
