Spruce West Coast Book Tour

After a fruitful November book tour through the South, I’ve decided to hit the road once again to visit the lovely folks on the West Coast! In just a few short weeks, I’ll be doing hands-on workshops, demonstrations, and book signings for Spruce: A Step-by-Step Guide to Upholstery and Design in San Francisco, Berkeley, and Portland. Baby Lilee and my hubby are coming, and we’d love to meet you in person if you can make it!

Do you remember my visit to San Francisco last July for Altitude Summit? I spent some time at Creativebug’s office prepping for the Spruce tutorials and was blown away by the staff and their amazing workspace. This time you get to come, too! Grab a staple gun and tackle your first mini upholstery project at Creativebug’s headquarters! Pick out your favorite fabric and make your own button-tufted pincushion or pull up a chair and let’s chat about your next upholstery project. Book signing and festivities are from 6:00-8:00pm at 255 Kansas Street in San Francisco.

I’m a huge fan of Portland! I love the lush greenery, walkability, and great shopping in this beautiful city. Plus, my twin sister, bro-in-law, and adorable niece live there, so it’s become my home away from home over the past few years. Thanks to the fine ladies at Modern Domestic, I’ll be setting up shop in Portland and teaching the Spruce lampshade class. Inspire your next bright idea with this four-hour class and turn your favorite fabric into your favorite shade! Click HERE to reserve your space in the class or join us afterwards for a book signing party from 5:00-6:00pm.

Looking forward to meeting you in person and sprinkling a little upholstery love across the Northwest!
