I say at least a few times a year that if it wasn’t for the winter, I would pack up and move to Chicago in a heartbeat. It’s one of my favorite cities, and there hasn’t been a trip when I haven’t left feeling a little sad that I have to go. So I’m especially excited to announce that we’ll be doing two events in the Chicago area for the D*S Book Tour! Our first event will be a craft event and celebration/book signing at Anthropologie, and the second will be a talk and demonstration at Anderson’s. Details and RSVP info for both events are below. Hope to see you there! xo, grace
Event: Craft/Book Signing/Celebration at Anthropologie
Date: Tuesday, October 11th, 2011
Time: 5–8pm (5–6pm craft workshop/6:30–8:00pm signing + celebration)
Location: Anthropologie (108 North State Street, Chicago, IL)
Details: We will be teaching all craft-event participants how to make their own custom wooden wax seal! Craft guests will watch a demo, make their own wax seal and leave with the seal they made, along with sealing wax and stationery to test on. Afterward, we’ll get together for the larger celebration of the book launch, where you can buy copies of the book and have yours signed! Drinks and treats will be served. Proceeds from this event will benefit the local arts charity, Art Reach at Lillstreet.
We will also have a custom backdrop designed by a local artists (and D*S contributors) the BBB Craft Sisters against which you can take photos (courtesy of Stevi Savage) with your friends and fellow guests!
