Made By Survivors THIRD TOOL DRIVE

25 Jul 2011, by elance programmer in Made By Survivors Programs

In preparation for our next studio opening, we are having a Tool Drive to collect tool donations for Made By Survivors new studio and to replenish tools in our existing two studios. I will do a pick up of tools at The Revere Academy for the Jewelry Arts in San Francisco, at the very end of August.  The Jewelry Artisan Collective in San Francisco also collects tools for us.  If you’d like to ship directly to me (I am the tool sherpa), please contact me here for more information.  On behalf of Made By Survivors and the survivors themselves, thank you so much to everyone for your continued support.
