In the lead-up to the C-ville Craft Attack's Holiday Craftacular on Dec. 10th & 11th, we will be making sure you know who we are and what we're offering as a superb artisan collective.

Details are being hammered out; we'll pass them on so everyone can plan on coming out to enjoy the festivities and support local craftwork. In the meantime, we'll introduce--or re-introduce--those in the collective and give you a taste of their creativity.
One new artist you'll see is Rosalba Valentino, local fashion designer and seamstress. A native of Nelson County, Rosalba attended art school at VCU, received her BFA in crafts, and proceeded to start her own custom fashion and accessories business.
Rosalba has designed for theater, dance performance, weddings, holiday shows and created custom pieces for a wide variety of clients encompassing a wide array of styles and tastes. She also creates her own one-of-a-kind women's fashion and accessories, as well as items for infants and toddlers. Colors, patterns, unusual materials and inventive techniques combine to offer an artistic approach to style with an emphasis on sustainable goods and 'slow fashion' methods.
