South Pasadena’s über-creative hangout, Common Thread Studio, is hosting an event they’re calling the Common Rally on Saturday, and basically it appears to be a craft geek’s paradise. Taking place at three Mission Street craft havens—Common Thread, Abuelita’s and Zinna—the day is devoted to raising money for the Pasadena Humane Society and to celebrating the artisan. Guests will be able to make ornaments, buy $1 fundraising raffle tickets for holiday baskets, bid in a silent auction, and, of course, buy the wares of local creative types. Look for handmade paper goods from Gingko, gorgeous baked goods from Cake Pop, cards and stationery from Molly Shoelace, jewelry by Upper Metal Class and a whole lot more.
Saturday, December 4, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Common Thread Studio
1011A Mission St., South Pasadena
