Artizan Made in Paducah

Holiday Celebration! Join us for our party!

We’re having a party and would love to have you join us!  Normally, our group meets at Washington Baptist Church in downtown Paducah on Thursdays, from 6:30-8 PM.  This week, I am hosting our meeting at my new home at 901 North 32nd Street:


Many people will recognize this house as the past location for Cardinal Realty.  The house has an interesting history and is zoned as both Commercial and Residential. Half of it will soon become Artizan Made, home to the online collective I run, along with TAFA: The Textile and Fiber Art List.


Bring a snack or drink to share…  If you play an instrument, bring it and maybe we can do some singing…  I am so excited to share this space with the community and hope that this is the beginning of many happy gatherings!


6:30 -9:30PM  All are welcome!


Come on over!
