Sunday Funday

We all know I love a good workshop.

And over the years I've had a great time getting you all in to The Lab to get your hands dirty and getting you building!  So how do you make that even better?  You add more workshops, and you add BRUNCH!!  My idea behind these workshops is "Sunday Funday,” so they’re dialed down workshops that focus more on crafting (less drills, more glue guns) that can be done at the store while enjoying mimosas and brunch. And don't worry... I'm not cooking!!! I am lucky to know so many talented people in Charlotte and thankfully, my tribe includes some chefs! So come hang out with me at Tuft on Sunday September 30th from 11-3 and sip, brunch + craft!  To kick it all off, we are enjoying brunch by Chef Precious Carroll owner / creator of the very delcious food truck The Hunter's Wife.  While we nibble we will be making fabulous felt floral wreaths with the very talented Dominique Antonette  who has a budding new business (hey hey see what I did there!?) in the works. This is definitely one for the books, dont miss out! Spaces are limited! Get your tickets HERE!

Don't worry...I'm still bringing workshops that are more about building than crafting at The Lab and I'm really excited to add some kid friendly DIYs to the roster! Stay tuned!

The Lab: BYOP (Bring Your Own Project)

IMG_1391 2.PNG

Ok its time to dig out that project that you put on the back burner or was too overwhelmed to get started.  I'm hosting my first B.Y.O.P (bring your own project) session at The Lab!  Come get to work in a space that has what you need with out the nagging task of cleaning up.  Have a night stand that needs a good sand + paint?  Or a dresser that needs a refresh? What about wanting to get crafty with a glue gun + sewing machine - I got ya covered. 

Come enjoy our weather while working on something to make your home that much more awesome.  I'm here to help but this is for YOU, come ready to work, I've got everything else you need!  But, if by chance I dont, we are right by Home Depot.  Bring it + LETS DO THIS!
