Community and Crafting - My two favorite things!

Austin folks - come see me and a great group of very cool Austin crafty folks this Thursday at the Austin Museum of Art for the first-ever Communicrafting event. The event is hosted by Jenny Hart and the Sublime Stitching crew to celebrate the two new Sublime Stitching releases from Chronicle Books (The Bib Kit and the Stitchable Stationery Kit)

Along with Jenny and the Sublime crew, I'll be there doing small embroidery demos. Also doing her craft thing will be Kathie Sever of Future Craft Collective with cool projects for kids. Leslie Bonnell from the Stitch Lab will also be on hand, sharing her infinite wisdom. And more!

I love events like this because it's a great chance to get out and mingle, meet knew folks, learn new things and celebrate the thriving craft community here in Austin. You need to be there! Please come by and say hi, take a few stitches and learn great stuff from some really special folks.

Check out the Facebook event page for more information to and RSVP to show that you'll be there with all the cool, fun kids. See you there!


  1. Lucky. (please say this in your mind with a Napoleon Dynamite voice.)

  2. Wish I could be there! If for no other reason than I need a Rachael hug really bad!

    Have a fabulous time!

  3. This is wonderful. I am so glad there are people like you getting out there on the streets and encouraging craft. You are truly a soldier of the DIY movement. I am constantly amazed at the generousity and giving that has been spread through handmade. Thank you!

  4. What fun Rachel! Wish I could be there too but I just watched your video demonstration on Craftzine (instead of making dinner like I should be, bad mommy!)
    Great demo, what a pro you are :)


Thank you so much for your comments! I read every single one of them. I do my best to respond when I can.

Have fun and be nice! :)
