June, 2016 — After years of being known simply as the Craft Fair, the Downers Grove Junior Woman’s Club has renamed their signature event. Beginning today, it will be known as the Downers Grove Handmade Market. The refreshed name represents Downers Grove Junior Woman’s Club continued commitment to bring the newest artisans and undiscovered handmade goods to Downers Grove residents.
Laura Schubert has been sewing since lessons in Home Economics while in high school. She now brings that talent to the DG Handmade Market in the form of hand sewn scarves.
Each of her scarves feels incredibly soft to the touch, with materials from fashion capitals such as Paris, Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles. These materials bring a truly unique garment to the marketplace and Laura loves taking the time to hand pick each fabric. She has also recently added hand knit and embroidered fabric shawls to her collection.
