Austin Handmade will be celebrating the Grand Re-opening of its new store location at 2009 S. First St. Combining launch efforts with this year’s Austin Fashion Week, the party will feature a fashion show by local designer Robie Dodson of Parsimony.
The Austin Handmade store’s Grand Re-opening Party will offer special in-store discounts, along with free giveaways from participating sponsors such as the TXRD Lonestar Rollergirls, select Austin based artists and a membership to The WonderCraft. Party guests will be able to try out the new Austin Handmade Do-It-Yourself Room using simple kits created by Austin artists with instructions and basic supplies available for purchase at the event. Continue with the on-site DIY fun with make n’ take projects provided by Austin’s newest creative craft-force, The WonderCraft.
