Our Fall Season of Patchwork Shows kicked off last weekend with a perfect couple of days in Old Town Tustin. It was our second season in this location and we got the chance to meet and connect with many more local businesses and city residents through some new vendors and guests!
While we’re not fully back and are still facing some restrictions in some of our previous locations, we are even more optimistic about next season after this weekend’s success. We heard from many vendors and guests that they were glad to see some of our food vendors back at Patchwork Show, too!
The mornings began with some chilly fog but brightened up to warm Autumn afternoons while folks were happily greeting each other, families were strolling through shopping, saying hello to old friends, meeting new ones, and stopping at our DIY and experience stations throughout the Market. This season we had Stefanie Annis reading her new book, Coco the Chameleon, with a storytelling corner, a stop where you made your own buttons and pins with Inner Peach Designs, a place to hand sew your own rag dolls with upcycled materials with Vintage Renewals, seasonal hand painted terracotta pots (this season it was a turkey!) with Ixtlahuac Marigold, chair massages by Jenna with Celestial Workings Massage, and some fun coloring pages by Stronger Together Now.
Old Town Tustin is quickly becoming one of our favorite Southern California cities and we’re so excited to be looking forward to yet another season there next Spring!
