d*s book tour: boston event details + RSVP

by Grace Bonney

I’m so excited to start announcing the rest of our Design*Sponge at Home Book Tour today! Every day this week (and in coming weeks) I’ll be sharing the details and RSVP info for individual cities’. Today I’m thrilled to be announcing our next event: Boston, Massachusetts! Boston is one of my favorite cities to visit and I can’t wait to see all of you there! For Boston we’ll be doing our smaller crafting event and party in the same location, West Elm’s Fenway Park shop (where I held the Biz Ladies meetup back in 2008!). Here are the details below:

Event: Crafting Event/Signing/Party at West Elm
Date: Wednesday, September 14th
Time: 6:00-8:30pm (6:00-7:00 craft workshop / 7:00-8:30 party, open to the public)
Location: West Elm (Trilogy location, near Fenway Park), 160 Brookline Avenue, Boston, MA 02215

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, Youth Design. One of my favorite local artists, Jen Hill of J Hill Design will be creating a custom backdrop against which you can take photos with your friends! Casey from Hello Love will also be on hand to take photographs and document the event!
RSVP: RSVP recommended, just click “I’m going” on West Elm’s event page for Boston

I also wanted to say a huge thank you to Rowenta, who will be donating more irons than I could possibly dream of for all of our crafting events! This is such a huge help for us and we really appreciate it. Thanks everyone at Rowenta!
