Stitch Lab Grand Opening Soiree and Indie Craftivity Scene!

If you're interested in learning how to craft, sew, embroider, stitch or knit... you NEED to make it out to The Stitch Lab this weekend for the Grand Opening Soiree and Indie Craftivity Scene!  This is a Haute Event for Austin - and you will want to be there and see if you "get happened!"

Yours truly, Anne Marie Beard, teaches sewing classes here under the guidance of superstar Leslie Bonnell. You may remember we had a kick-butt Dueling Glamazons event back in September at Parts & Labour...

Leslie's motto is "Sewing is power, independence and creative freedom!" As someone who has been crafting her entire life - I can tell ya that is 'sew' true! Come out, meet some amazing artists, get inspired - and OH - all of the beautiful fabrics at the Stitch Lab are 20% off!

Feel The Glee!

*annemarie* at Cherrywood Art Fair this weekend!

*annemarie* is thrilled to return to Cherrywood Art Fair again! This community fundraiser supports CHULA and the Art Program at Maplewood Elementary.  This is a Haute event in Austin this weekend, and there will be plenty of pictures to post later!

Anne Marie has partnered with a "Little Artist" this year to create a piece of art for her to keep, and one to auction off.  She was interviewed by KUT's Julie Moody along with a few other artists, you can listen to the interview here!

This is the purse that my Little Artist made, and it's for sale in the Silent Auction - please come out and support this amazing event!

The best Holiday Arts Show - HANDS DOWN! Featuring 80 of Austin's most creative artists.
