It was definitely a mad house in here this weekend.

After our blow out holiday party — which was nicely rounded out by neon decor, ice-sculptures, the Brooklyn Girls Choir, and a live nativity scene — we hosted one half of the BK Craft Central Holiday Market.

While I was thoroughly exhausted, by the end of the weekend, I was happy to spend 11 hours perusing the many works of the talented folks that filled the studio all weekend.

In case you didn’t make it, and are still looking for some great gifts for anyone, these people will surely sell to you in your last minute shopping frenzy. I’ve gathered some of my faves:

For a co-worker:

Wonderful bath salts, soaps, and scrubs from Volta Organics

 

For a good friend:

Pendant necklaces from SKT Ceramics

 

For the craft-crazy:

Hand spun, hand dyed yarn from HelloMello Hand Spun

 

For the sweet-tooth:

Oreo-Chip Cookies from Bean & Apple (highly addictive)

 

For the self-analytical writer:

Board Game spiral bound notebook from Another Work In Progress

 

AND Textile Arts Center has a few necklaces, pairs of suspenders, keychains, and woven cowls left! Stop by the studio if you want to check them out.

Thanks to all the vendors for sharing their talents, and all the customers for supporting local artists! Happy Holidays!

Happy Friday!

Cute way to wrap your presents. Or try these recycled options.

Don’t go to the card store for that last minute birthday card! Come see us. In the Textile Arts Center’s 4-week course students will learn the basics of paper-making and how to do it from home.

There is a slow and steady movement towards green, and what is the most wasted commodity in the world?  Paper, especially around the holidays.  Thousands of holiday, thank you, and wish you were here cards go out in the next few months.  However, I have always been told that the best gifts are the ones you make yourself.  Putting all that time, effort, and love into the creation of a card makes it twice as special.

The simple design can say everything.  It is the greatest expression of love that we have to offer: to bring a new idea into the world all because of another.

Notice how all these cards have a simple design that is stamped or screen printed onto them. During the Textile Arts Center’s “Personal Stationary” class you will carve your own design to keep and make cards forever!  Sign up! Don’t let the opportunity blow away.

Last Saturday we set up shop at the 3rd Ward holiday fair. We gave some free demos, and started to introduce a pending product line (!) The crowd was great, we were set up directly in front of the band (and panda), and $1 colt 45’s! Was a blur and lots of fun.

We’ll be having some weaving workshops held at 3rd Ward in the coming months, so check back for that (or on the 3rd Ward site)

Also… big big news coming for the new year but I dont want to reveal it just yet. Stay tuned…
