Venue Information

Let's try to give oddmall a run for their money! Maybe we have high aspirations, but why not? Even though Oddmall in Hudson is the same day as the inaugural "Crafty Goodness at Calvin Park" show, I still smell success. I, along with my lovely and crafty friend Wendy, will be organizing so watch out! 2 craftsters on the loose! Here are the details:

Crafty Goodness at the
Calvin Park Rec
2241 Mapleview Drive
Seven Hills, Ohio 44131

10 am-6 pm

Inside the goodness:

The venue is a kitschy knotty pine panelled gymnasium.

If you aren't familiar with the little town of Seven Hills, it is halfway between downtown Cleveland and Akron, easy access via 77 or 480. The show will be held at our former rec center, which now is primarily used for voting. Tons of great parking, handicap accessible, free admission.
