I'm excited to announce a unique meet up I'm hosting tomorrow for Martha Stewart Living’s American Made celebration.
For those of you not familiar with American Made, it's a movement for individuals and communities who have turned their passion for handcrafted, well-designed goods into small businesses in food, fashion, beauty, community, design, crafts, garden, and technology. America has always had a creative and entrepreneurial spirit, which has highlighted our past and will most definitely power our future. We, at Martha Stewart Living, believe in empowering and spotlighting a new generation of entrepreneurs. It's something that I am personally very passionate about and honored to participate in.
With 2013 being our second year, we are celebrating around the country with MeetUps: gatherings of communities and American Made small businesses in different towns and cities, with Richmond being one of them.
I want to personally invite you to our next MeetUp, at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery this Thursday, May 2nd, from 6-9PM with the RVA Street Foodies to celebrate the best of Richmond, with great beer, great food, and great local artisans. I'll be there also signing copies of Mad Hungry Cravings-- please come out and say hello!
Just like the movement, the American Made MeetUp is for all ages and is an open invitation to small businesses and the local community: spread the word to your favorite local Richmond artisans, small business, crafters, fashion mavens, and beyond!
