Harry Potter Pop-Up Festival - New Haven, CT
Ashley "Trix" Hamel, a Wizard Rocker and long time member of the HP fandom, as well as a friend to this Meetup and of mine, has launched a one day HP festival in New Haven CT. I do not actually know if I will be able to attend, or if any of our organizers will be able to. But I wanted to post this event to boost interest as well as help any of our members who want to coordinate travel. I hope that some of our members can help support HP fandom in CT and represent NYC =) Here are the details: A pop-up festival celebrating all things magical at New Haven's vintage Lyric Hall Theater.

Our main sponsor is Jordan Dené (http://www.jordandene.com/) - Maker of kitchen armor, outfitter of crayon soldiers.

Jordan Dené is a matchmaker of sorts, first introducing and later marrying practicality and pop culture. Pennsylvania-bred and Brooklyn-based, Jordan specializes in creating aprons with geek-chic graphic designs and creative curios like the best-selling crayon bandolier (as seen in Real Simple’s holiday gift guide).

Although initially sewing was solely supposed to be a creative outlet, thanks in part to Etsy’s enthusiastic crafting community, Jordan’s hobby quickly turned into a wonderfully hectic small business.

Jordan’s products are crafted with individual care and are fashionable, functional and 100 percent customizable. With handcrafted items like the ever-popular TARDIS aprons, golden snitch necklaces and canvas bags embroidered with whichever Hogwarts House suits your fancy, Jordan’s shop has everything to fit your niche needs.
