Some news items don’t need translation. That’s why DPJ launched the From the Wire series, so we could serve the destinations here by posting information and announcements – in their own words.


We are happy to announce the sixth “Coffee, Cookies & Crafts” independent craft event to be held at Bragg’s Pie Factory in Downtown Phoenix on Saturday, April 7 from noon to 5:00 pm. The afternoon will offer a variety of activities including local vendors selling handmade goods, crafting demos, a craft supply swap, and spring fashions from local designers. Attendees will get to enjoy a pop-up lounge with free coffee from Jobot Coffee Shop and sweets from local bakeries.

Local fashion designers will participate in live fashion shows and demos throughout the day. Come see the latest local fashions for spring.

Everyone’s invited to participate in a free community craft table! We provide the supplies and attendees provide the craftiness. This time we’ll have spring-themed crafts available.

Visit our Spring Board young crafter’s section where young crafters (under 18) can set-up shop and sell their handmade goods alongside the regular vendors. Spring Board was created to encourage entrepreneurship (and crafting, of course!) at an early age. Please come support these young entrepreneurs!

The free craft supply swap is open to everyone. Attendees are invited to bring old craft supplies and swap with others. Tables will be provided for the craft swap. Crafting demos will be scheduled throughout the day.

Local vendors will include A Blissful Life, Amazed Handmade Jewelry, annieWHERE, Chain Theory, Clean Getaway Soap Co., Crafty Modern, Dea Della Morte & Black Wing Apothecary, Elysian Art, Gothcupcake, Hazel & Violet Ink, Jjac’s Mixed Media, Leah May Style, Lila-Jo, Madalyn Nault Accessories, Mermade Jewelry, Moderncat Studio, Moos N More, Patty Lewis Glass Artist, Puppet Pie, Sebastien Millon, Space Boy Robot, Space Cadet, Sticker Club Girl, Strawberry Hedgehog, Urban Adornments and more.

The popular Phoenix food truck, Pizza People, will be there all day to satisfy hungry attendees with fresh homemade pizza, including vegan and gluten free options.
