d*s book tour: norfolk virginia event details!

To say that I’m excited to do a book tour event in Norfolk, Virginia is a massive understatement. Ever since I started the blog I’ve been wanting to put something together in my hometown area (I grew up in Virginia Beach just down the highway), so I’m thrilled to be able to announce our book stop in Norfolk at one of my favorite independent book stores, Prince Books. This is going to be a special event because my whole family will be there, so I hope you can make it if you’re in the area this November. The details are below- we’ll be doing both a craft event and signing/party (with cupcakes courtesy of my Mom and Dad!) so I hope you’ll come join us for the fun! xo, grace

Event: Crafting Workshop and Book Signing/Party at Prince Books
Date: Thursday, November 17th
Time: 6-8pm (6-7pm for the craft project, 7-8pm for the party/signing)
Location: Prince Books (109 E. Main Street, Norfolk, VA 23510)
Details: Come join the D*S team from Brooklyn and Virginia as we celebrate the launch of the book by recreating one of the stamping projects from the DIY chapter. All you need to bring is your own tote, clothing or fabric to stamp on. We’ll provide the rest. This event will benefit the local arts charity, Arts for Learning. (Please note: Books will also be available for sale through Prince Books)
RSVP: Space for the craft event is limited to 30 people so please RSVP HERE soon (The craft fee for this event is $25 and includes snacks, drinks and craft supplies). You can also RSVP for the main party/signing right here (if you buy a craft ticket you don’t need to buy a party ticket).
