It’s party time and you’re invited!

With the holidays approaching, I’m planning to host my annual resliced holiday party and sale! If you’re live in or near Columbia, South Carolina, I’d love to have you join me on November 1 from 11:00am to 12:00pm! {Sign up here so you’ll receive the location details}

Missing in action – For those of you who have been following resliced, you may have noticed I haven’t been around town as much as I have been in previous years. At the beginning of this year, I decided to scale back and let myself breathe. Working full-time during the week and spending my weekends at the market was a tough balance. I was feeling a little suffocated with re-creating the same items in an effort to “stock up”. I wanted to give myself time to play around with new designs and improve my skills. I’ll admit I’ve spent a lot of that time “selfish sewing,” but I’ve tried hard to improve my skills and extend what I have to offer.

Last week, I sent the first announcement to my resliced email newsletter subscribers (interested? Sign up here), but I wanted to extend the invitation to all of you lovely blog readers! 🙂

I also wanted to share a little more info about what this party is all about.

Last year, I hosted an “exclusive” party for my friends and family. I had so much fun chatting with friends and sharing my creations with them just in time for the holidays. This year I wanted to extend the invitation to any and all local resliced supporters!

So, what will I have at the party?

Oldies, but goodies – I’ll have all the items currently in my shop online available at the party.

Like these…

AND I’ll be recreating some past designs.

Like these…

Remember the Tribal Wristlet? I’ve got enough fabric left over to make a similar replication. [Click the picture to check out my blog post about the original!]

Reduce, reuse, recycle – In addition to the items in my Etsy shop, I’ll have first drafts and gently used items for sale at a discounted price. When a new design hits me, I’ll construct it, try it out for a few weeks, come up with improvements and recreate a new / improved version or move on to something different. The original (gently loved) piece is thrown aside and often not used again. Instead of letting said pieces gather dust in the bottom of my closet, help me give them a new loving home!

Here’s an example of one gently loved bag that will be available:

purple

Magnetic clasp clutch with hand painted dots on vegan leather, super soft purple upholstery fabric exterior and fun floral interior.

NEW skills – As you may have caught on, I love learning new crafts. My love of snail mail + the calligraphy craze (is it just me or is it everywhere?!) led to me taking a Modern Calligraphy class recently. I ordered some blank cards and got to work last weekend on some holiday cards. While I don’t plan to offer these cards in my shop (maybe one day..), I will have them available exclusively at the party so come stock up!

This card already has a recipient, but I’ll have similar ones available.

IMPROVED skills – I learned how to add zippers! 🙂 I’ve played around with them before, but I think I’m finally getting the hang of it!

Proof:

Brown patterned zip-top clutch with vegan leather bottom.

Crafty sharing – For those of you Pinterest addicts like myself, I’ll have some crafting supplies available too!

This will include:

  • Bags of beads and stones for jewelry-making
  • Fabric scraps in many different sizes – including upholstery (mostly), cotton prints and knits
  • Other craft supplies as I find them [which could include anything from blank canvases to fold-over elastic]

…because I believe in you!

I hope you’ll be able to make the party! I’m looking forward to kicking off the holiday season with you!

In the meantime, follow resliced on Facebook and Instagram (@reslicedsc) – I’ll be posting sneak peeks of items as I make them in the coming weeks for the party! 🙂
