A lot has happened since our last blog post! After a wonderful experience at Cues & Tattoos it was time to move (again). Simultaneously, several of our beloved events had exciting news to share, so we’re passing along this news to you.
Settling into the New Studio
Sakkara Clothing & Costume has relocated to a new studio in the Seattle area. This move meant that the shop had to close for a bit, but the website and Etsy shop are both live again. You’ll even find some new additions to the sale sections.
Exciting news: our best-selling Corrie tops are on sale for the first time! With Summer festival season right around the corner, this is the perfect time to stock up on different colors, try something new, or ditch your underwires for something more comfortable.
Hooray for Hexenfest!
You may recall from last year’s blog post that Hexenfest is one of our favorite events. For a minute we thought it was going to end like so many of our other beloved festivals, but thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign, it’s here to stay!
We’re pleased to announce that Sakkara Clothing & Costume is a proud sponsor of Hexenfest. We strongly believe in supporting the things we love. We can’t take festivals and other events for granted. Our community has lost too many good events in recent years. Support the events you love in any way you can: financially, on social media, and by inviting your friends.
Speaking of Events…
We’re also big fans of JamBallah NW! You may have heard that this event has moved to a new venue, which is true. The new site is Smith Memorial Union on the Portland State University campus. The great thing about this is that you can stay in the PSU dorms for a really reasonable price, which leaves more money for workshops and shopping (or late-night Voodoo Doughnut runs, we’re not going to judge).
Speaking of shopping, of course we’ll be vending! Come say hi.
We love how JBNW caters to dancers of all styles, levels, and abilities. If your budget is tight, there are workshop scholarships you can apply for, thanks to the generous support of Odd Fellows and micro-donations from other attendees. Lack of funds shouldn’t hamper your artistic growth, so we’re really pleased that this option is available.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more exciting news from us and our favorite events. You can also join our FB group and chat with other Sakkara fans about style, dance, and more.
