****UPDATE: This event has been postponed till August 29. Hope to see you there!****
Hi all, I’m very excited to announce the first SEWING IN A STRAIGHT LINE event! It’s a launch party, it’s a book signing, it’s a meet-and-greet, and it’s a sewing lesson — all happening at the awesome Etsy headquarters on August 8! If you live in the NYC area I’d love if you’d join us in Brooklyn for an afternoon and evening of sewing fun! Here are the deets:
WHO: You! And me! This event is open to the public. (Reservations are required as space is limited – see below for more info on that.)
WHAT: This is a multi-part event – here’s the breakdown:
3:30pm Live Webcast: I’ll be live on the internet from the Etsy labs demonstrating how to sew the One-Hour Skirt from Sewing in a Straight Line. You can tune in to watch it on your computer, from wherever you are.
4:00pm Sew a Skirt Workshop: Join me in person at the Etsy Labs to sew your own skirt! That’s right – walk in with some fabric, walk out with a cute skirt! This event requires basic sewing skills and is by reservation only, so click here to reserve your spot.
7:00-9:00pm Launch Party, Book Signing, Meet-and-Greet: This portion is open to anyone (sewing skills not required), though you must reserve a spot because space is limited! There will be mingling, snacking, book signing, sewing (make the 60-Second Hello greeting cards from my book), music and more. It’s going to be fun and I would love to see you there! Click here to join the party!
WHERE: The fabulous Etsy headquarters in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
Monday, August 8 (see times above) MONDAY, AUGUST 29
WHY: To celebrate the launch of Sewing in a Straight Line and give some of us a chance to meet in person over some sewing, music and snacks. Yay!
