hi folks and welcome!!
Little Button Craft & Press has been open for 2 days now and what a rush it has been!!! So much has happened in the last month. Many of you have been following our build of little button via facebook (littlebuttoncraftandpress) or just walking by in the neighborhood. It has come a LONG way!! I've learned how to use a nail gun, table saw and how to paint in the "w" formation!
There has been a lot of help from friends and family and I would like to just give a shout out to them and say publicly THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Without your help we couldn't have done it!
The night I met Jennifer Posey we talked a lot about craft. She is the owner of Hedonist Artisan Chocolates & Ice Cream here in the South Wedge. I am in awe of her craft and devotion to chocolate! We talked about my dreams of one day owning a small farm with a barn and having a giant art studio on the second floor of my barn. Well we didn't buy a small farm, but we did decide to create an art studio with a storefront.
So what is Little Button Craft & Press? Well it is evolving every day. It is a stationary shop, knitting lounge, and gift boutique where you can find the perfect unique gift! It is a place of inspiration, and a place to have workshops (starting this fall) to learn a new craft. We look forward to hosting a stitch and bitch group, screen printing workshops, sewing 101, and letterpress!
When I was living in Los Angeles there was a store there called Paper Source. It was harder to leave Paper Source behind than it was my job and life there!! It is a great store that inspired me to make so many things, and provided me with the supplies needed to do Letterpress at the Armory Arts Center in Pasadena. So after moving back home to Rochester I decided I needed my own Paper Source. This began the tiny dream of what Little Button has become!
We have included a bunch of local artists at Little Button too! We have art of all mediums and are always looking for more people interested in consignment. Come check out all we have to offer!
craft lives here....
