Well here's your recession-bummer of the day: Crafty Wonderland, the long-running monthly sip 'n' shop at the Doug Fir has announced that it will scale back to just two events in 2010, citing poor sales. Next year you'll have to save up your crafting pennies for just the annual holiday sale plus and additional springtime event, both of which will be held at the convention center. Your last chance to kick it crafty style in the glowing environs of the Fir is on Sunday the eight of November, 11 am-4 pm. Go kiss a Portland institution goodbye.
