We weren’t going to let a little bit of rain (or a lot) spoil our weekend at Renegade Craft Fair! Despite the wind and drizzle on Saturday, we still had loads of people come through our Make + Take booth to stitch up a drawstring bag and when the sun finally decided to come out on Sunday it ended up being another great craft weekend for the BurdaStyle team. Click through to check out a few pictures from our booth as well as a great video put together by Society HAE!

Thanks once again to our amazing friends at Spoonflower for printing up more adorable fabric, to Renaissance Ribbons for providing the beautiful ribbon to finish off our bags, to BERNINA for letting us swoon over their fantastic 3 Series machines again and to Blumenthal Lansing for hanging out and teaching people how to properly sew on buttons. A special thanks to everyone (especially our fantastic volunteers) who braved the weather to come see us, we met lots of new friends and hopefully inspired a few of your to start sewing!

Our Sewing Lounge at McCarren Park.

    I attended the Renegade Crafts Fair in Brooklyn completely by accident. I was visiting a friend and we were in Williamsburg and saw lots of folks heading down Bedford ave and we just followed them. That’s how I came to find out about Burdastyle and Spoonflower as well because I sewed up a quick handbag.
