Well, we've officially entered festival week. I can't believe it's here. There's so many great things going on to finalize preparations for the event. It's going to be amazing. Come Thursday we'll be gussying up the Huguenot Mill, getting ready to welcome participating vendors, and about to make a secret reveal about the future of Indie Craft Parade (hint, hint)! But for the meantime, I've got a great show to tell you about. One of yarn makers for Indie Craft Parade is having a special event here in Greenville. This would be worth your time to check out as you get ready for a weekend packed with crafty goodness.
First, this Thursday, Sept. 6, Stacey Budge-Kamison of Urban GypZ Yarns is having a trunk show at Greenville's very own Wool Over Your Eyes--a premier retailer for all things fiber. It's sure to be a beautiful show.
And then, speaking of workshops...we still have spaces available for our workshops on Saturday. There are 5 amazing classes that will teach you a new skill and cap off your Indie Craft Parade experience perfectly. Buy tickets here.
Also, VIP Gala tickets are available for only $25. This night is going to be our best event yet!!!
