I’ve been keeping a secret… I’m excited to share that I’ll be one of the featured makers at the Feliz Holiday Sale in Austin, TX on November 4th!
I was thrilled when Feliz co-creators Abby Powell and Natalie Davis invited me to be part of their amazing event. Feliz is a weekend-long event which begins with an artist meet and greet, then proceeds to a day of workshops, where you can make anything from beautiful jewelry, to richly dyed fabrics, to hand printed papers. Feliz will culminate in a small sale with a select group of makers from all over the country. Feliz Holiday Sale will be Sunday, November 4th, at the Palm Door, which makes it a perfect opportunity to start your holiday shopping.
On a personal note, I have so much respect for Abby and Natalie’s vision for this event. They are approaching the whole weekend with a level of enthusiasm and professionalism that I find invigorating. Abby was a co-host for Little Winter Market, another delightful handmade holiday market that happened in Portland in 2010. With that success under her belt, she’s determined to bring a curated selection of handmade goods to the people of Austin. She and Natalie have a passion for the handmade community that is not matched by many, and I could not be more excited to be a small part of this big undertaking.
