Great Times at Open Studios

Thank you to everyone who came out to attend our Open Studios in Somerville, MA on 11/17 and 11/18.  We had a great time meeting new customers and reuniting with old friends, showing off our workspace, designing custom bags and selling our ready to wear inventory.

We’ll be open again in May during Somerville Open Studios, when over 400 artists open their doors in the largest art event in the area!  In the meantime, we’ll keep making your gorgeous custom designs and developing a few new products too!

Do You Live Near Boston, MA? Have a Purse Party at Our Studio!

We work in an awesome artist building in Somerville, MA – across the river from Boston and home to the large collection of artists outside of NYC. We frequently have events in our studio, including Open Studios and Second Saturdays. Lately we’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about having parties in our studio, to which I say, Yes, Yes, Yes!

jackie-bachelorette-6.29.13Bachelorette, Birthday Party, Girls Night Out – all great excuses to throw a bash at our place. Peruse the bags, choose your fabrics, and see in person how all the colors look together. We recently hosted Jackie’s Bachelorette Party at our studio, it was part of her girls-only weekend celebration in the city. We had such fun! Most of the ladies designed Round Day Clutches for Jackie’s wedding in August, and Jackie herself designed a Straight Day Clutch to bring to her honeymoon.

Ready to throw your own party? It’s easy to do – just bring your friends and the refreshments. Send an email to emily@elementalthreads.com and let’s get the party started!

Proud to work in Somerville, MA

Our studio is in the Joy Street Artists building, a repurposed factory and storage facility that now houses 60+ artists.  Our neighbors include glass blowers, painters, guitar makers, sculptors, textile artists and all sorts of creative types.  It’s an exhilarating and inspiring place to work, and we love participating in Open Studios twice a year.

Our building is one of several in Somerville that was converted into artists studios.  Hundreds of artists work in this 4 mile wide city – in fact, the largest collection of artists outside NYC is in Somerville, MA!  The city is wildly creative and holds dozens of unique events each year.  The crafts, arts, food and people of Somerville are a dizzying display of creativity and we are so proud to be part of it.

This article in the Washington Post, “A Crafts Explosion in Somerville Mass,” highlights just what is so awesome about our city.  We’re just across the Charles River from Boston, so if you find yourself in the area spend a day in Somerville!
