Oh those crazy Microcrafters. They make the smallest of crafts, but throw the biggest of parties. This week, there are Microcrafts celebrations going down in New York City and Pittsburgh.

The first celebration of tiny crafts takes place this Thursday, October 20th, at Wildcard in Pittsburgh, PA. Alicia Kachmar isn't the only Microcrafter from the Pittsburgh area. Local artists Nadia Marks Wojcik and Tamara Barker are also featured in the book, and will be attending the release party. The folks at Wildcard are also going to be showing off Alicia's first Quirk title, Witch Craft.

Over the course of the party (which also doubles as Wildcard's Second Anniversary bash), Tamara and Co. will be selling tickets for their Steeltown Etsy raffle to help Alicia with some recent medical bills.

The first 25 families to show up will score a goodie bag, so get there on time! For more information, visit Wildcard's official website, or scope out the Facebook event page for the party
