Happy Thanksgiving

Holiday Market 2016

All of us folks over here at the Pajama Factory would like to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.

We hope you had not only a great day, but a great year as well.

We have a lot to be thankful for here at the Pajama Factory: another year of great art, another year of great events, new friends and new businesses born right here in the shadow of our smokestack.

We’re happy to be here, happy to have you all as friends and proud to be your neighbor. Thank you for welcoming us into your community again this year!

(The picture above is, of course, the banner for our upcoming Holiday Market. I chose it mainly because it’s really a great looking image, designed by our own Kyle Huggins (Thanks, Kyle!) The Holiday Market is coming up very soon and you should definitely come, both Friday and all day Saturday!)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Election Night Excitement

We had a little bit of election night excitement tonight at Way Cool Beans when the coffee roaster overheated and filled the area with smoke.

The Williamsport Bureau of Fire were called as a precaution and did a great job of making sure everyone and everything was safe.

Way Cool Beans will be closed early tomorrow until they get the all-clear to open from the Codes Department.

Update: November 9, 10am
He’s open!

Here’s a great thing

Veruschka Stevens

Cliff Stevens, who’s been quite active with Val Beggs’ sewing classes, took the pattern of a hand-woven Bolivian textile and had it printed online. When the fabric arrived, he reverse-engineered his wife’s favorite top and duplicated it with the new fabric, giving her a truly wonderful gift.

Not only is this very cool, it’s the kind of thing *you* can do, when you Make What You Wear! Thanks for sharing, Cliff!
