Rock the Runway Wheeling sponsors!

Our first out-the-door event that Thread & Grain is officially a part of is the Rock the Runway event, which benefits the Wheeling YWCA.  Bob Bailey, a friend of ours, has run this event and is celebrating the 10th anniversary this year.  It's going to be huge!!

They've got 60 models walking the runway this year, some of which are celebrities...while the rest are "local celebrities.  Bennett and I cannot wait until next Saturday.

How does Thread & Grain fit into all of it?  We are providing shirts for the final walk for ALL of the models!  It's going to be so fun to see all of those amazing people rocking some t&G threads!

Here's a peek at the tees we've been designing and printing.  Fun, right?


Thread & Grain LAUNCH PARTY!

May 1 was the date we set for the official launch of Thread & Grain...and here it is!  We've been working super hard behind the scenes over the last couple of months to get this rebrand of Handmade Escapade up and running.  And it's finally the day!

Why the name change?
Sometimes you just need it.  Handmade Escapade treated us well but just didn't feel like it would hold up forever.  It was too long, the web address with two e's side by side made life hard (I'm not kidding...so many people got it wrong) and we are building a new level of items for sale.

Plus, we are bringing Bennett on as a fulltime member of the team!  Thread & Grain is almost an extension of the team that is Katy & Bennett.  I hope you love it.  We've got plans for so many new, exciting, and badass things in the future!

For this launch, we've got new things to show already.  Check out our wooden necklaces, available today: 

Thanks again for willingly coming along on this journey with us.  We have loved every single step of it and are looking forward to what the future holds!

Ready to launch!

Bennett and I have been diligently working behind the scenes to get ready for our grand launch of Thread and Grain.  We are insanely excited to be learning new tools and creating new goods.  

Is there anything more mesmerizing than watching a laser engrave onto a piece of wood?  We are suckers for a good timelapse, so here's a sneak at some of the designs we are releasing on Sunday.

We are so grateful to have you all stick with us over the years.  It's been a wild adventure and we wouldn't change it for the world.
