I’m so excited for our Back to School screenprinting weekend event in San Francisco! If you’ve ever wanted to learn about screenprinting now is your chance! We did an event like this in the spring and it was one of my favorite events ever. Here is how it works: you bring as many blank tshirts or totebags as you want (plus Uniqlo is providing a free kids shirt to all attendees) and then we screenprint like crazy for a few hours plus get some instruction on how to do it yourself from our screenprinting expert Andy Kane. Attendees will walk away with piles of new printed items plus a goodie bag of treats. You’ll be all set for the new school year. We are calling this a Back to School Event but of course we plan on printing on adult sized tshirts too. We’ve had four different designers do new designs just for this event: Katy Smail, Wendy MacNaughton, Amanda Jane Jones, and Emily Isabella. I’m so excited to share them today! They are soooo good.
The event will be August 16th and 17th and there are several sessions to choose from. Sign up here!

A bunch of people have asked us to bring back our Letterpress Craft Nights. So, today I’m excited to announce that we’ll be hosting 4 new classes next week! In this beginner class, we will be teaching the basic letterpress process while printing greeting cards. All the proceeds from these events will be donated to my kids’ awesome (but underfunded) nonprofit community preschool here in San Francisco. You can click here to purchase tickets. If you’d like the cost of your ticket to be tax deductible, please bring a check the night of the event (and your online purchase will be refunded.) I hope to see you there!

My crafting closet is bursting at the seams and I had to face the facts when the other day an employee pointed out (um, Jordan you’ve had this stuff for years and we never use it. ) I guess that means it is time for a studio sale! If you are in San Francisco stop by next Wednesday afternoon. We’re basically getting rid of all the rad stuff I’ve bought over the last few years plus lots of craft supplies (new and gently used) plus pinatas, vintage ephemera, disco balls, and other random stuff. Let’s do it!
