We've now had time to step back and properly reflect on American Made. It was a whirlwind two days packed with really enlightening workshops and useful information for passionate crafters, cooks, gardners and entreupenuers. Overall, an incredible success and a wonderful turnout! Thank you to those who made the trip to Grand Central - we loved crafting with you!
We'd like to take a moment to send a heartfelt thank you for our wonderful sponsors who donated supplies and tools to our Make and Give stations during the event.
Everyone loved making necklaces!

Our beloved partners at Plaid sent paint and made special screen printing screens with an American Made logo. We screen printed totes for people to take home!
Lion Brand Yarn gracious donated skeins of yarn to make Pom Pom key chains from Silke's Pom Pom story. Create for Less (our go-to source for lots of craft supplies) sent us key rings. Our friends at Clover provided us with pom pom makers:
If you look closely, you can see we also used dot stickers back to back on baker's twine to make this gift wrap garland.
Thanks again to all our wonderful sponsors and for those of you who made it to American Made!
