Bored with mass-produced trends? More than 40 craft aficionados will band together Saturday to present the "Pile of Craft" Craft Fair, an alternative art event. A small group of Baltimore artists, dubbed the Charm City Craft Mafia, has invited crafty comrades from all parts of the East Coast to join the fair. This is the first event created by the recently founded "mafia," which is a chapter of the Austin Craft Mafia, based in Texas. According to Heather von Marko of HVM Designs, she and Joanna Ramani of Meghann and Jo's Aprons -- and another artist who has since left the group -- began the chapter in December and started inviting other indie crafters to join.

AFTER SO MANY years of putting this column together weekly, the ebb and flow of news items never ceases to amaze me. Sometimes you're scrounging around for information, other times everybody and his grandmother are calling to chat.I have an unproved theory involving news flow in relation to the moon, Mercury and the relative outdoor temperature: If it's cold, everybody stays home and nobody calls me. If it's hot, almost everybody stays indoors cooling off or goes on vacation, and nobody calls me. What's left?

The Baltimore County school board is expected to vote Tuesday night on a revised facilities policy that would allow PTAs and community groups to hold craft fairs and bingo games that had been in jeopardy. Responding to a deluge of public complaints, the school system has rewritten the policy and rule twice so that most of the uses that community groups lobbied for will be allowed. Members of school PTAs became upset last year when school administrators began enforcing the policy, which prohibited third-party vendors from earning profits at county schools.

The Board of Education of Baltimore County will reconsider a policy that limits craft fairs and other fundraisers held at school facilities, its members decided Saturday. The board will have its policy committee review the rule and decide if changes need to be made that would allow more people to use school buildings. The full board would then vote on any changes, said Earnest E. Hines, board president. "When the public has real concerns about something, we have to go back and examine it," Hines said shortly after the board made the decision at a retreat.

Parents and community leaders will ask the Baltimore County Council for help Monday as they fight to continue holding craft fairs and other fundraisers in county schools. The county Board of Education policy, which bars third-party vendors from earning profits at county schools, has drawn strong criticism. More than a dozen opponents are planning to ask the council to take action on the rule, which they call misguided, economically unsound and unfriendly to the community. "It is not smart policy or smart government, particularly in these lean times," said Eric Rockel, president of the Greater Timonium Community Council, which includes about 50 neighborhood associations.

For 29 years, the craft fair at Ridgely Middle School in Baltimore County has built a sense of community, earned thousands of dollars for school projects and even taught young entrepreneurs about business. The 2010 fair at the Timonium school drew about 100 crafters and hundreds of shoppers and raised $13,000. But a policy barring third-party vendors, such as crafters, from earning profits at county schools will most likely prevent Ridgely from hosting a 30th fair. "It's a long tradition at Ridgely," said Kay Hardisky, PTA vice president and last year's craft fair chairwoman.
