Justa Phillips will return this year.
You’ll have to show up to see
if her classic cowboy design
will be there!

BikeCraft IV is just around the corner. We’ve gotten so much response from vendors that we’ve capped attendance and now have a full lineup of folks eager to sell their wares. Before we share more about who will be there, a quick reminder…

BikeCraft IV will be December 10, from 5:30pm to close at Roots Organic Brewing at 1520 SE 7th Ave (just south of Hawthorne) in Portland.

With that out of the way, here are the final fantastic additions to the list (Check out our other vendors here and here).

New Faces:

Toe straps, made with love by Megan Denton.
  • Megan Denton makes gorgeous leather shoe straps that may just be that final touch you’ve been wanting for your fixie.
  • Rachel Betrus is a crafter whose work is largely inspired by her love of bicycles. She’ll be bringing an array of top tube pads, messenger bags, quilted arm warmers, hats, patches, scarves, hoodies
  • Edwin Skaug makes panniers, top tube wraps, fenders — I’m excited to see these
  • Krishna Muirhead creates unique bicycle related t-shirts
  • bIKE pUNK a southeast Portland startup, prints bike motifs on t-shirts, sweatshirts, stickers, patches, and more
  • Jim Duthie makes necklaces and earrings from bike parts
  • Paul MacCammond is newly arrived in town from Austin, and makes clothing out of bike parts

  • Justa Phillips is back again after participating in the debut BikeCraft, with her bike-themed jewelry and clothes
  • Microcosm Publishing will be bringing its usual classic array of books, zines, stickers, and patches
  • Stumptown Printers, a longtime component of the Portland bike community, will have their line of beautiful bicycle themed posters for sale

Check out our main BikeCraft page for more updates, and start matching up vendors with your holiday gift list.

We’ve also been working hard on a massive prize raffle (ticket sales go toward the BikePortland.org Improvement and Sustainability Fund). I’ll have more on that next week.

We look forward to seeing you all there!

If you see a mean or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you.

    A good way to make your money go further is to buy local. Come on by and check this out!

    I hear there are some anticipated items from Queen Bee that’ll be there.

    Looks like the linke for the bikecraft main page goes to an old bikecraft page from 2006.

    Is anyone else having a problem with the link to the BikeCraft main page? We can’t replicate it here at BikePortland HQ and it’s driving us nuts…
