We partnered with San Francisco’s haven for all things DIY, TechShop, for the official West Coast launch of The BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook!
Guests could take party in activities ranging from a Make + Take booth with specially printed fabric from Spoonflower, wool felt slipper and bow tie tutorials with Britex Fabrics, fun and games with ModCloth, a fantastic LEGO jewelry booth with Instructables. Tasty snacks were provided by Creme Brulée Cart, The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen, and Cynically Delicious Cupcakes; photos by Ricki Ward and The Photo Boof!
Along with the Make + Take tables, party guest could also make felt slippers with Britex Fabrics and LEGO jewelry with Instructables.
