d*s book tour: paramus new jersey event details!

We’re heading out for the West Coast leg of the book tour this weekend, but before we hop on the plane, I wanted to post the RSVP info for our New Jersey event! We’re so thrilled to have another event in the tri-state area, so if you’re in town, I hope you’ll come join us for a crafting event and party/signing at the West Elm in Paramus (Northern New Jersey). The details are below:

Event: Crafting Event/Signing/Party at West Elm
Date: TUESDAY, October 18th
Time: 6:00-8:30pm (6:00-7:00 craft workshop / 7:00-8:30 party, open to the public)
Location: West Elm (380 N Rt-17, Paramus, NJ 07652)

Craft Workshop: I will be demonstrating a project from the book using freezer paper to customize your own cloth-based products. Then we’ll all make them together!
Craft Fee: $45 per person (this includes all of your craft supplies and a signed copy of Design*Sponge at Home!)
RSVP: This crafting class is limited to 25 people, so please RSVP here soon if you’d like to attend.

Book Signing + Party: 7-8:30 p.m.
Details: After the craft event, we’ll be celebrating the book launch with a party (drinks + treats will be served) and book signing. We’ll also be supporting a great local arts charity, the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey. Two of our favorite artists, Sierra and Juliette of Poppies & Posies, will be creating a custom backdrop against which you can take photos (thanks to Smilebooth) with your friends!
