Sewing. It’s an old-school craft, with plenty of new-school applications. Bag making. Easy-sew curtains. Doll clothes. Home and fashion hacks. Accessories and things for your kids. These are activities you might not traditionally associate with sewing, but that’s what today’s makers are doing with needle and thread. When it comes to sewing, Dritz® is a mainstay. Yes, Dritz® is your grandma’s tomato pin cushion. But it’s so, so much more. Visit us at Creativation and see for yourself!

Our Events: Experience Dritz® in action and see how easy DIY can be. We have a host of events going on in our booth (Prym Consumer #1315) allowing you to get a hands-on feel for Dritz® DIY. Come chat with our demonstrators, who will be using new and favorite Dritz® fasteners such as grommets, rivets, swivel hooks and rings. Finished projects will be displayed, providing inspiration for incorporating Dritz® into bags, accessories, device storage, clothing, items for kids and home.
