Come see me at the September Avant-Garde Art & Craft Show!

Yay! It's almost here! The Avant-Garde Art & Craft Show is just a few weeks away and I've been a rather busy little bee sewing up a storm of wonderful goodies for you to come shop. I'll be selling a wide variety of handmade goodies, perfect for giving as gifts to everyone on your list this year from the youngest child on up to your favorite grandpa. :)

Several of the items I'll be selling are projects from my new book Simple Sewing: 30 Fast and Easy Projects for Beginners, which comes out in November of this year. So not only can you shop the items, you'll get a major sneak peek at many of the fun projects in my book!

I'll also be selling some of the vintage trims I've been hoarding saving for something special, lots of fun and simple handmade cards, some fun vintage treasures, and lots more!

I also love that part of the proceeds will be going to Local Matters, a local community group that helps raise community gardens and promote good health. During the school year we get to see some of the folks from Local Matters at Olivia's preschool selling local veggies and letting the kids and families at the school try out delicious dishes made from their produce. Last year our family spent a day working in one of their beautiful vegetable gardens here in Columbus and it was such a wonderful experience. The Local Matters staff are really genuinely good, kind people striving to make a difference right here in their own community.

So mark your calendars for September 21! It's going to be a party and support a great cause too! See you there!

Pssst! Want to see some of the goodies I've been making to sell at the show? Follow me on Instagram (@theredkitchenkatie) and check out the hashtag #avantgardecraftshow for a sneak peek!
