Thumbs Up, Austin & Portland!

Many thanks to the fine folks of Austin, TX and Portland, OR, who came out in droves last Sunday for our CRAFT: 07 release parties! Crafters converged on Twisted and The Work*Shop like a bunch of button-hungry locusts, and we’ve got the photos to prove it!

We’re so, so grateful to everyone who came out to help celebrate CRAFT’s latest issue, and to our generous party hosts, venues, guest stars and door prize providers–not to mention the helpful volunteers who lent their crafty talents to the cause.

    The party was awesome and we were honored to be involved. I never did get around to making a bracelet, though. Waiting for it to slow down a bit and it never did.
    Thanks everyone!
