    Meet the Chori-Man

    Posted February 9th, 2015

    We’d like to welcome indie food rock star Humberto Raygoza, a.k.a. The Chori-Man, to his new stage at CRAFTED. He’ll be performing with his grill every weekend, creating new fans of artisanal chorizo and sausage recipes with his original and healthy twists (including soyrizo for meatless fans!). Humberto takes requests, so you can call out for red or green chorizo added to burritos with seasoned potatoes (“papas”), sandwiches with sautéed peppers (“chori pan”) or a quesadilla topped with a crunchy fresh salad. Get a sneak peek of his infectious smile in this commercial featuring him working his former grill at the Del Rey Deli: http:/youtu.be/Wts7H7P4HVs. Support him now that he’s gone solo at CRAFTED every Friday-Sunday from 11a.m.-6p.m. Come for his food, stay for his “Guac-N-Roll” t-shirt collection. Cheers to the Chori-Man!

        L.A. Quilt Show UPDATE

        Posted February 5th, 2015

        We’ve updated the dates for the 2nd Annual L.A. Quilt Show & Fiber Arts Fest. We had so much fun last year that we’re ready to get planning!

         

        Join Us!

        Last year some of the quilt show participants had such a great time that they decided to join the CRAFTED family and are now a big part of the planning committee for this year’s show. Our quilters are extremely community oriented and would LOVE to have you join them on the planning committee. Here are a couple of the projects they are doing out in the community.

         

         

         

        Linda Curry of One of a Kind Quilts has created a red dress themed quilt to support the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign dedicated to fighting heart disease in women. She’s also been collecting donations and selling pins.

         

        Gay Kersey Morris of Kersey Girl Creations – AccuQuilt, Aprons & More is involved with The Blue Butterfly Village Project. Sponsored by the Los Angeles chapter of Volunteers of America, the Blue Butterfly Village is a community of 73 town homes that will house formerly homeless female veterans and their families. Gay, her daughter Melanie Kersey and her sister Carol Kersey Walker are one of the design teams chosen to furnish a number of the units.

        CRAFTED is so proud to be the home of such civic minded quilters. If you’d like to join these fabulous women on the quilt show planning committee, give us a call at (310) 732-1270 or email us at info@craftedportla.com.

            Amella Caramels are made by hand with raw blue weber agave nectar and contain no refined white sugar. They are sprinkled with Sel Gris, a gray sea salt hand harvested off the coast of Brittany, France. The chocolates come in packages of 2 or 6 and are available in milk chocolate, dark chocolate and vegan varieties.

            Susan’s Manhattan Beach Honey

            Susan is an urban beekeeper in Manhattan Beach, just a short jaunt away from CRAFTED – you can’t get more local than that! In addition to harvesting this gooey gold, Susan mentors other would-beekeepers, including local school children. Come satisfy your sweet tooth with some truly local honey and support a great woman on a mission.

                    Last Call for Restoration Hardware Warehouse Sale

                    Posted January 19th, 2015

                    RHSale-3-web

                    All good things must come to an end, even amazing deals on fabulous furniture. It’s time for us to bid adieu to Restoration Hardware and their Warehouse Sale. This weekend, Jan 23-25, is your last chance to find that signature piece that will tie your whole room together. What doesn’t go with a discount?

                    Don’t forget to stop by the craft marketplace for some more great shopping. With the money you saved on your new bed, you can afford a one-of-a-kind quilt. Or pair your new couch with uniquely illustrated pillows. Or set your new table with handmade bowls. You get the drift.

                    We’ve enjoyed hosting the wonderful staff of Restoration Hardware, but we’re really going to miss the warehouse smelling like leather.
