Made With Love Craft Show

Santa Clara University business student and Made With Love Craft Show Chairwoman Alexis Babb-Gomez has once again been successful in putting on a craft show! The Made With Love Craft Show is so different from any other show in that it has a very local feel and vibe to it: the show features local vendors, raffle prizes donated by local businesses, and fundraising for a local non-profit. This year, there were over 30 local vendors from throughout the Bay Area selling unique, handmade, and affordable gifts. A grand total of $1,755 was raised and all proceeds will go to Rebekah Children’s Services in Gilroy, California. This incredible non-profit organization is dedicated to promoting the social, emotional and physical well being of children and families through their plethora of program offerings.

Chairwoman's Message

Alexis Babb-Gomez

Alexis Photo "The origins of this show lie in the Make a Difference Craft Show, which was held in May 2009 at Oakwood Country School in Morgan Hill. This craft show was in fact my high school senior year project and it took the full twelve months to plan!. I never imagined that the show would be as successful as it was; over 400 attendees, 33 local vendors, and $1,617.26 were raised for the American Cancer Society. A year and almost 6 months later, I am planning a craft show again but now at my university, Santa Clara University. With my passion for arts and crafts, entrepreneurship and non-profit organizations, the Make A Difference Craft Show was reborn as the Made With Love Craft Show."
