AUGUST DIY Columbus Calendar

Craftin' Outlaws DIY calendar

August is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited! We get another month of sunshine, kids start returning to school and the most exciting Outlaw event of the summer is happening. The Day of DIY is a city wide, week long event to support your locally owned shops and Craftin’ Outlaws. Simply shop the retailers you already love and your support will be felt throughout the handmade community.

As your week of visiting your favorite local retailer comes to an end we will be celebrating with our first ever Day of DIY Gala! The gala will be held on August 12th at Wild Goose Creative from 6pm – 10pm. It will be an evening of craft stations, drinks, food and raffles – a night of creativity and friends you will not soon forget.

Sewing, crafting, and hoarding fabric are a few of my favorite things.
