Cathy Zwicker and Torie Nguyen started Crafty Wonderland in April of 2006 as a monthly craft sale at Doug Fir Lounge. The event quickly gained popularity with both shoppers and vendors, and has grown to a twice-yearly market featuring 250+ artists from all over the country selling their own handmade work in a 60,000 sq. ft. hall at the Oregon Convention Center. The holiday art + craft market brings in upwards of 20,000 shoppers over two days. Crafty Wonderland also has a retail shop in downtown Portland that features handmade work from 200+ Portland area artists. Cathy and Torie are both crafters themselves and experienced craft show sellers as well!
