Everyone wants a piece of the SXSW action, including textile artists, craftsters, and sewists!
Because it's hard to find events in all the noise, and many things pop up all last minute and unofficial, we decided to keep a running list here on our blog. Please post any sewing/crafts/textile arts events you know of in the comments below, and we'll update this post with them every day.
What's on the list so far?
SXSW Handmade Artists Market. Our own Special Events Coordinator, Jessica Pierre-Auguste will be selling there on Saturday March 17th. Event is at Gueros, on the corner of South Congress and Elizabeth Street.
Bernina Make and Take event, March 16th and 17th, noon - 8 PM, at the Austin Convention Center as part of the free Style X Showcase. They will be in Booth 315. The Style X show looks really freaking cool! If you try to find an official Bernina press release on this one, good luck. The Benina store at Parmer & Whitestone in Cedar Park didn't have a clue about it, either, but looks like Sew Much More on Anderson Lane is sponsoring it. More info on Bernina's booth here.
WonderCraft is going graffitti-style, overspraying t-shirts, bags, and other stuff with grungy SXSW stencils. More info here.
Rumor is that Etsy Austin/CraftRiot is keeping it low-key this year.
Added 3/11: One of our guild members says: "Flatstock is awesome. This is one
of my favorite SXSW events every year."
