Where in the Raleigh area is Handmade by Vi?

Craft Habit

If you’re ever interested in honing some craft skills for yourself I definitely recommend this amazing little shop here in the area. Not too far from downtown Craft Habit is home to many many crafting supplies and wonderful human beings who all believe in sharing their knowledge and passion with the locals!

I can be found on occasion hosting classes of my very own here as well. From vision boards to sharpie letters I’m always looking to find a way to share the tips and tricks I’ve learned over the years playing with paper. If there is a specific skill you have in mind or an item on my site you’ve seen that you’d love to create with your own two hands don’t hesitant to reach out and suggest a class. It takes a little bit of time to develop a curriculum but I am always happy to teach and to learn alongside y’all!

Pop Ups

Unfortunately, like most of us, there just doesn’t seem to be enough time in a day! I don’t often have the opportunity to make it to the many wonderful pop ups in the area. However, when I do, I’ll be sure to post it here! I’ve been known to participate in Raleigh’s Pancake & Booze event at the Lincoln Theater or occasionally find a spot for First Friday


No Scheduled Events

Private Events

As always I am happy to encourage ideas and find a creative solution. For those of you with a lot of crafty friends and maybe an upcoming party or just looking for something to do at next month’s Friends Night Out I will gladly offer my services! I’ve got a range of curriculum at the ready to choose from or we can collaborate on a fresh new concept. Not a DIYer? Not to worry. I can haul my typewriter along with me to your next big get together and offer personalized favors with unique quotes to commemorate your event (yeah, you guessed it, this one is pretty big at weddings and showers).

Have some questions about what I can do for you? Reach out of instagram or contact me here and I’ll get back to you with more information!
