Especially in August

August is here and it is hot.  There is a lot going on if you love fashion, sewing, creating or just love looking at beautiful things.

This weekend the Denver County Fair will be bringing its kitschy, crafty folky self to the National Western Complex on 4655 Humboldt Street, Denver (of course). Parking is 10.00. Adult tickets are 10.00, children 12 and under 5.00.  Other pricing options available, check website for details. Fair is from August 10-12.

Denver Art Museum has only 2 presenters left in the fashion demo lineup.  August 11, 12 and 18, 19 is Sew Heidi.  Fashion Illustrator Jim Howard will be demo-ing on August 25 and 26 and again on September 1,2.

The wonderful Tactile Arts in Denver is currently showing Elfriede Style until August 25.  Check their site for hours.  Elfriede is a long time business owner in Boulder and a designer extraordinaire.  See her amazing work before it’s packed up.  

Denver Design Incubator is holding free sewing workshops at their studio.  If you have ever wanted to start sewing this is such a great opportunity.  

The Denver Modernism Fair again at the National Western Complex is happening August 24-26.  Check website for a variety of pricing options.  This is a fun fair aimed at all things modern and funky.  

And, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the Denver Sewing Collective is having their 2nd Thursday Sew Night on August 9th.  

Awesome things going on here in Denver, I’m sure I missed several more.  If you know of something please reply in the comments and If you want to be mentioned for September please let me know!

  1. Here is a great way to spend a hot August day, getting out and get inspired, meeting new people and sharing you love of the “art”. Sewing can be a passion, a hobby, a way to keep yourself or school kids up to date and the envy of moms’ that have forgotten how to thread the machine.

  2. Wow – I wish it weren’t summer and I actually had time to just bop around Denver, rather than tend to my garden and home all weekend. Sounds like a lot of great happenings for sewers to attend. I will probably be at home sewing this weekend, now that I have the itch to sew some soft goods for the home. Comfy washable slipcovers are my next project.
