Last Saturday, Old Town Alexandria held the First Annual Old Town Craft Walk. The event hosted by a local yarn shop, fibre space™, The Potomac Bead Company and Stitch Sew Shop, a recent addition to make the Old Town Alexandria crafting trifecta complete. The event included make and takes for each shop, refreshments and the opportunity to win a grand prize from each store. Did you know that the owners of both fibre space™ and Stitch Sew Shop have toddlers? We of course had to support our local stores and made a visit.
A lot of exciting art exhibits are happening near the Metro D.C. CCWB Chapter during summer 2015. Be sure to read this guide on all the places to go and visit with or without your babes.
We are so fortunate to live in an area where markets are plentiful during the summer. I visit the Burke market (Saturdays) frequently. The Burke market has bakeries, produce stands, butchers, florists, a salsa vendor, a couple cheese vendors, and last year there was even a while-you-wait ice cream vendor. The Reston market also has had an artisan section with clothes, bags, jewelry, and other assorted items. Please share your favorite part of the market near you in the comments!
