This Thursday, May 16th, we'll be hosting our first ever Craft Club from 5-7pm! What is Craft Club? It's a chance to get together after work, make stuff and make Fight Club jokes. This is mellow, unstructured time to hang out and work on whatever it is you've got going on and chat with some other crafty folks. Maybe you are knitting a sweater? Maybe you're working on some embroidery? Maybe you have some books that need to be sewn together? Basically, if your craft is portable, and doesn't require heavy machinery, then bring it to Craftland and spend some time crafting with some new friends. This gathering does not have an instructor and doesn't have supplies for you, but it does have some drinks and cool people to talk shop with.
Please join us and be inspired!
Sign up here.
You may recognize our next artist featured in the Craftland Gallery from such television shows as Project Runway! We were excited to have Providence represented by one of the most talented, sweet and funny dudes in town.
And now you can see his work designed specifically for the home here in the gallery.

Curious interior products. Smashingly practical.

Craftland Gallery is popping with photographs by Corey Grayhorse from March 7th - April 6th.
In Grayhorse's world, Japanese street culture collides with haute couture, and Hello Kitty courts Marie Antoinette. Scooping icons from their original context, Grayhorse transforms them into a new reality, with a reverent nod to the traditional and punctuated with a contemporary kiss. Her photographs embody a fresh and lively mix welcoming the absurd and surreal.
RSVP for tomorrow's reception (rescheduled from today) Friday, March 8th from 5pm - 8pm here on Facebook!

Today, we honor Ms. Nancy Carleton, the de facto Mom of Craftland. Nancy has been a Craftland supporter from day one -- sitting on the floor at 711 Westminster in 2002, carefully threading ornaments with the same micro-focus as Margaret. She passed away on December 17th. We will miss that tough cookie.
A portion of today's sales will be donated to the Westover School in Middlebury, CT where she graduated with the class of 1950. Nancy enjoyed the progressive and inclusive school with a great scholarship program for students from different backgrounds. She was a great advocate of places where women could be challenged and achieve great things in a supportive atmosphere.
"The mission of the school is to provide an environment which inspires the intellectual, artist, athlete, and philosopher in each student. Westover challenges young women to think independently, to embrace diversity, and to grow intellectually and spiritually. Westover encourages in each student integrity, responsibility, and commitment to community."
