If you follow Southern Accents then you should know all about the BIG event that took place this past Saturday, May 3rd in Montgomery, Alabama… Southern Makers! Planning for the 2014 event started a year ago after the huge success of Southern Makers’s 2013. We stayed busy for several weeks leading up to the event constructing backdrops, staging, and props as well as putting the finishing touches on items for our own booth.
If you have somehow missed the information on Southern Makers, this was an incredible one day event celebrating the creativity and innovation that is Alabama! The event, which was held as a fundraiser for E.A.T. South, was a compilation of some of the most talented artists, craftsmen, chefs, brewers, farmers, designers and musicians from across the state gathered together in one place, for one afternoon. Attendees were able to browse and purchase merchandise from talented artists and craftsmen, enjoy tastes from creative chefs and brewers, sit in on educational conversations with some of the makers and enjoy music from three Alabama based bands.
Thanks to our team members countless hours of hard work, Southern Makers 2014 was a huge success! Stay tuned… we’ll be posting more pictures and updates on this fantastic event in the coming days!
