Celebrating Handmade at the Indie Craft Parade

It’s one of our favorite maker events!

It’s always fantastic to see how makers use Dritz® products to craft handmade items such as garments and bags loaded with hardware, or costumes and headbands that use our elastic. This year we took it up a notch, and had our very own Dritz® booth at the VIP gala, which is the event’s kick-off party. What fun!
