On Friday, December 9, Matt and I represented SoCe Life at the annual TISSU Sewing Studio Holiday Open House. I had met the owner, Nina Winter, of TISSU at the inaugural EcoFest at the Bartlett Arboretum in 2014. Nina has a great spirit and is passionate about the environment, community and kids. Here studio is a healing space. 

Each December, Nina hosts and open house and invites a few local businesses whose products benefit a cause. She especially highlights people whose products are eco-minded. SoCe Life joined TRADES OF HOPE (Rosie Britton), HAIKU Handcrafted Indie Fashion (eco-fashion for mindful living), THE 2050 EFFECT (eco-fashion by Diana Rios), and MWANAMKE Project - handmade pagnes from local refugee women (Claude Puntel-Sessions) at this year’s open house. We enjoyed learning from each other and getting to share our stories with friends of TISSU. There were delicious snacks, inspiring people, and a fun photo booth! We even sold a few SoCe T-shirt bags.

By the way, SoCe T-shirt bags are $7. If you need one to use as a cool hand-made, upcycled gift bag, let us know.
