eThreads Open Studios 11/17 & 11/18 12-6 pm

If you live in the Boston area, stop by our studio in Somerville this weekend!  We’re open 11/17 & 11/18 from 12-6 pm to participate in Open Studios.  Joy Street and Brickbottom Studios are two neighboring artist buildings that open their doors twice a year.  This weekend over 100 artists are participating – you’ll find fiber arts, glass blowing, photography, painting and sculptures – all in one stop!

Our entire inventory will be on sale, everything is 15% – 50% off.  Stock up for holiday gifts and grab a few things for yourself.  You can also design a bag in our studio with all the fabrics, linings and trimmings right there!

After you’ve visited our studio, check out the dozens of other artists.  There is tons of free parking in the lot in front of the building and on the street – no resident parking during Open Studios!  We’re also nearby many bus stops and a 15 minute walk from Lechmere station.

We’re located at 86 Joy Street, Somerville MA.  Look for the big yellow door to get into the building, and we’re on the first floor – #108.  For more info check out the Joy Street Open Studios page and Brickbottom Open Studios page.

See you there!

We just sent an email to everyone on the mailing list with this important announcement, and we want to be sure you all see it too.  Do you want to be on the mailing list too?  Just put your email address in the box on the bottom of our home page!  We don’t send emails often, just when there is an important announcement or big coupon.

40% COUPON!  We want to treat our loyal customers to a special coupon to help you enjoy the old prices before they’re gone. From now until 9/1, you can use a 40% coupon! Just checkout with Google Checkout, enter code Loyal40 and immediately 40% will be taken off the total. Hurry, this coupon will expire when the new prices go into effect, so you must use it by the end of day Friday, August 31st!

Thank you everyone for your love of eThreads.  Some of you have been with us since we started in 2008 and it’s because of you we’ve grown from a one-woman operation to a bona fide small business making it big.  Thank you for your continued support of the eThreads dream!

Welcome to eThreads’ New Home!

It has already been an exciting year for eThreads – we’re hiring more talented seamstresses, redesigning our website and developing tons of new bag designs that are making us drool.  I am most excited about our big move into a brand new studio!

The new space is perfect for eThreads. It’s located in a big building filled with artist studios, so there is inspiring creativity everywhere.  It has room for a huge fabric cutting station, several sewing stations, construction station and a photo studio.  Most importantly, it’s 3x larger than our current space, which means we have room to make more bags, hire more people and move eThreads into the next stage of awesomeness.

We’ve spent the last few weeks with a lot of lumber and nails building all the work stations.  Now we have to finish the (very important) kitchen table, sweep up all the shop dust, and move in the fun stuff!  Decorations, fabric, inventory, oh my!  Take a gander at our first set of pictures, when the room was unfathomably empty.  We’ll post the next set of pictures as soon as we’re finished decorating!
