It's been a whirlwind of preparations these past few weeks, but I am finally excited to announce that I will be participating in the Broughton Exchange Pop Up Shop. For the whole month of December, actually starting this weekend Nov. 28th (yep, that's Black Friday) and running through Dec. 21st, my printed tees will be hanging out on Broughton Street at the awesome Broughton Exchange Pop Up Shop alongside products by other local talented makers, artists, and small businesses. Ever since ReCreate Savannah closed last winter, I've been looking for ways to get more involved in the community. I miss the connection with customers, getting feedback on my designs, and having a local spot to share my products and art. I am so happy to be getting my wish for a whole entire month and, if you're local, I really hope you'll stop by to take a look around. We'll be in the former Gaucho storefront at 18 East Broughton. I'll have all of my bestselling tshirt designs plus a bunch of last year's leftovers that will be discounted due to limited sizes, and - this is a big one - my Bicycle Wrap Skirt sample, so that you can see it for yourself and learn how it works. :)
And on top of the Pop Up Shop planning, I'm also thrilled to be helping organize a Holiday maker's market that will be taking place on December 13th right here in Savannah, GA at the American Legion. My close friend and fellow talented maker, Jessie Duthu (of Strawberry Moth) alongside a few other talented local designers are working hard to lay the groundwork for a new organization called Craft Scout Savannah, which will host a couple of annual maker's markets (starting with the Merry Makers Market) and classes throughout the year. We'll be focusing on art, design, and small business mini courses, and I am actually planning to teach! Stay tuned for a one-day screenprinting class, and I'm thinking a sketchbook drawing course early next year. Any other suggestions?
