I thought I would share a few glimpses that were captured around the shop this week, and share a little bit about the activities of the weekend!

First of all, I am very excited to both speak at, and attend my third Makers Summit right here in my home town of Greenville, SC ! This event always proves to be a wonderful time of creative learning and refreshment….not to mention….the PEOPLE! I always walk away with new friends and mentors and that is a wonderful thing! I have heard from several of you that are coming from all over the country…and I am excited to meet you for the first time, and hug the necks of those of you I have met previously on my travels!

Also, First Fridays is tomorrow night from 6-9 pm here in the Village of West Greenville! Knack will be open as well as our other friends in the village: Lily Pottery, Art and Light, The Village Grind, Joseph Bradley Studios, Matthew Campbell Studios, Charlie Mae, The Station…and more! Art and Light is having a special show called “12 Friends Bit by Bit” and it is an event that should not be missed!

The weather will be gorgeous and warm, so come on down to the Village and immerse yourself in the creative hub of the city!

I hope you all have a great weekend!
