100 Layer Cake’s NY Stationery Social

August 24, 2009

A few weeks ago Jillian hosted a super sweet little get together for NY area stationers as a way to bring designers together, get acquainted and put a face to the work that we all admire. What we’ve learned in talking to members of the stationary community is that while everyone enjoys looking at each others’ work, they seldom meet in a relaxed environment where they have the chance to just have a drink and mingle with their peers.

Jillian had the super idea to put on a little event that allowed for some of our favorite paper artists to come out from behind their computers and printers and letterpresses, sip some wine and talk shop. We think it turned out really cute!

100lc_ss2a3 Elan Artists was kind enough to lend their amazing space for the event and Josh hopes to host future events that keep the space as collaborative as possible. What an awesome idea. Jillian was able to enlist the talents of a number of industry friends who we’ve been lucky enough to meet through our blog.

Jillian even made blueberry jam during a recent family vacation in Michigan for favors. Awww. We’re definitely going to show a little tutorial on this project next week, along with recipe cards.

Lorenzo and Jennifer kept the wine flowing and educated everyone on delicious imported Italian wine from Small Vineyards. If you’re looking for someone to help you out with wine for a wedding or party, you should definitely look these two up!
