Friends, I am so excited for this holiday season.
There is SO much happening in the little world of Banner that I never anticipated would be a reality in its first year of existence. My friends and community have rallied around me, supported and encouraged me as I have taken this step towards doing full-time what I feel called to do in this life - being a maker.
If you are in the Seattle area this winter, boy are you in for a treat! I have so many plans in the works for Banner, and I can't wait to share them with you. For now, here are the upcoming events:
SHOP BANNER IN THE FLESH //
Some dear friends of mine (who's wedding we shot a few years back) recently opened their very own flagship storefront for APSE Adorn. Wow. What a joy it has been watch them commit their lives to the calling they have received, and succeed tremendously through all of their hard work and sacrifice. Upon the opening of the store, they invited me to be one of a few curated PNW makers featured alongside their stunning, minimal jewelry. APSE is the first place you can walk in, shop, and go home with a Banner piece the very same day! Head on over and give their new storefront some love (and stay a while, because trust me you'll want to).
APSE Adorn // 1307 Cornwall Ave, Bellingham, WA 98225
SPRUCE WORKSHOP // NOVEMBER 18
Join me as I lead a workshop on how to create a beautiful woven wall hanging on a frame loom! In this 3 hour workshop you’ll learn the essentials of frame loom weaving, different ways to create texture and how to finish and remove your completed small piece. This class combines instruction time with lots of hands-on learning. By the end of class you will have the techniques and inspiration to hone your newfound weaving skills!
The class fee includes all the supplies you need to begin and continue weaving (yes, it’s all yours to keep!)
• Handmade weaving loom
• Weaving tools including stick and needles
• Access to a thoughtfully curated yarn selection
