Dekalb Market

Brooklyn strikes yet again with something that I love about NYC.  In my quest to support handmade, local, and just overall awesomeness I found the Dekalb Market.  Dear friends in Brooklyn, when we come visit, can we please go???  Of course they said yet.

It’s an amazing use of space for pop up shops.  Old cargo containers turned into something practical and actually looks pretty.

The market is open year round.  It would be great if we could support something like this in Indianapolis.  We have wonderful stores that promote local artists, but it would be great for artists to have a place to support themselves.

Check it out next time you are around Brooklyn.

I need your feedback – contest

Designs and new ideas are constantly being thrown around in the sewing room.  For a while now I wanted to create something that had a local flare.  I have made two designs that I am equally partial to, airport codes and city nicknames. Each set is hand embroidered then machine quilted.

So readers, I need your help.  Please comment below on your favorite design.  I will pick two winners and send them a custom local set of potholders.  Winners will be chosen at random on Saturday July 30th.
