You already know me as the owner and mastermind behind Martian Creations, the one who creates a mishmash of crochet awesomeness!

Creating has always been a passion of mine and I’ve been fortunate to be able to turn that into a business. I officially started Martian Creations in 2006. Since then, I have been putting in the blood, sweat, and tears to get this off the ground. That includes setting up almost every weekend to be a vendor at many events and festivals around Raleigh for years. I love Raleigh and all those events, but now it’s time to hit it big!

I recently got accepted to be a vendor at the AFOPUNK Festival in Brooklyn, NY this summer. This festival has been described by the New York Times as “the most multicultural festival in the US,” the word AFROPUNK itself has become synonymous with open-minded, non-conforming and unconventional, placing the institution at the epicenter of urban culture inspired by alternative music. This is absolutely me!

Unlike local events, this festival has a steeper vending fee than I can currently afford. I started this campaign to raise the funds for the vending fee ($800) and van rental/gas ($750).

This is the stepping stone to a whole new market and will help with the growth of Martian Creations. Together with your help we can bring the crochet movement to the masses. Thank you in advance to all my Martian supporters!
