Earlier this year, we applied to become members of a local craft collective called Austin Craft Riot, in order to grow our little sewing venture. Well, it has been a whirlwind of learning, product portfolio building, sewing room time and it all culminates THIS WEEKEND! Holy cow, I’m so nervous!
Ruth isn’t nearly as nervous as me, which is why we make a good team. Anyway, Hammer and Thread, along with 70 other local Austin crafters, will be presenting the Austin Craft Riot Summer Show, this Saturday and Sunday, August 16 & 17 from 11-6 both days. It’s $2 per adult to get in and FREE for kids. In addition to the awesome vendors, there’ll be a huge kids activity area with arts & crafts, games and prizes.
Hammer and Thread will be selling our famous lounge pants, recycled hoodies (yes, the Lil Blue Boo pattern!), 3 sizes of snack/sandwich bags for your kiddo’s lunchbox, our NEW belts and NEW adventure pouches. The pouches slide onto any 1” belt and can hold whatever treasure your adventurer finds along the way.
I know our blog has been very quiet lately, and now you know the reason. We now have an Etsy shop, a Facebook page and an Instagram account (@hammerandthreadshop), too!
If you’re in Austin, please come see us and say hi!
