Since 2009, Hover Craft has brought some of the most skilled local artists, crafters, retailers, and others residing beneath the broad “maker” umbrella together to bring Milwaukee-made goods to area consumers during the holiday season. After stays at the Bay View Brew Haus (RIP), Sweet Water Organics (RIP), and Turner Hall Ballroom, Hover Craft thrived in the Pritzlaff Building last year. The coalescence of crafters will return to the same site Sunday, December 4 between noon and 6 p.m.

Regulars like Kpolly, Orchard Street Press, and Bittercube are returning. This year, newcomers like painter/illustrator Big Shot Robot, a bead-based jeweler called Jasbo, and reclaimed goods and home retailer Blue Collar Goods will make their Hover Craft debuts. In all, close to 70 vendors will partake in this year’s Hover Craft. Here they are:
