Four Craft Attack designers and artists invade the Corner Radio this morning!!!

Cary, Tavia, Martha and Christina spoke to Brad Savage of the Corner Radio (106.1) this morning on the Community Corner about our upcoming Spring Craftacular at OpenSpace! What fun we had telling more people about our show and sharing more about our group to Cvillians. We reminded people that a portion of our proceeds will be given to an awesome local group called the Women's Initiative and that the show will be happening just in time for Mother's Day and Graduation gifts.

If you missed us, here is the segment:
