307 Maker Space

27 Nov

Maker Spaces are popping up all over the country! Members can use the facility to create cool stuff on cool machinery like 3-D printers and laser cutters. This summer Dave got a membership at the 307 Maker Space located on the Wind River Reservation. It’s a long way from Cheyenne so Dave brought Dot the Teardrop with him and camped out for a week. He spent his time getting to know the tools available, the staff, some locals and creating new rawhide jewelry designs on the laser cutter. Boy did he have a great time! He thought so much of the project and the staff that he is now a board member. Dave and I will be headed up there this Friday for a Saturday board meeting and the Art in the Afternoon show in Lander. If you are in the area stop by our booth and Dave will show you his new line of Botanical earrings created at 307 Maker Space!



Holiday Shows are around the corner!

5 Oct

Rawhide Studio is gearing up for the 2018 holiday season! The fun starts on November 17th & 18th at the Christmas in Windsor show in, you guessed it, Windsor CO. The Atlas Holiday show is right in Cheyenne on November 24th, easy-peasy. Rolling west on route 80, Rawhide Studio sets up at the University of Wyoming’s Holiday Mart for one day on November 30th.

The TearDot Little Guy trailer will head  north up route 25 to Lander WY for Art in the Afternoon on December 2nd and finally south on December 9th for the Boulder Holiday Gift Show

Wow its a busy season but we will tuck in some family time for Thanksgiving in Colorado and Florida for Christmas. Hope to see you at one of our holiday shows!


The TearDot is ready to roll for our Lander Holiday show

Spearfish Festival in the Park

13 Jul

One of our favorite shows is just around the corner! First of all Spearfish South Dakota is a great little city to visit. First the important stuff… Leones’ Creamery. Its the best ice cream shop for miles with interesting flavors like Horchata and a “pay it forward” board where people  pay in advance for friends they know will be coming in or for groups like teachers or firefighters etc. What a fun idea! Who doesn’t want to be recognized with a free ice cream. Ok, now on to the show. On July 20th -22nd dozens of art and craft booths will wind along side Spearfish Creek and in and around the park. Also expect a great line up of music and food booths and all this goes to benefit the Matthew’s Opera House and Arts Center. This year Rawhide Studio will be in booth space 117A. So if you are on your way to a Black Hills vacation stop in and say howdy! FIP18-1200-collages-1-1024x536


Of course our Little Guy TearDot will be going up with us and camping in the campgrounds right next to the show! Our Townie bikes will be hitched to the back too. There is a great bike trail in town.

Art in the Park

18 Jun

Rawhide Studio will be on the road this Saturday heading to Brighton CO for Art in the Park!  Located in Carmichael Park, its a one day festival on June 23rd from 10-4:00 pm. Rawhide Studio will be introducing their biggest, boldest earring yet and a new sapphire blue paired with copper or silver. Gorgeous!  See you there!


Garden and Show Season!

17 Apr

Rawhide Studio had a good show last weekend at Laramie County Community College during the Laramie County Master Gardeners annual conference. All that talk about gardens, seeds and planting made us anxious for planting season in Wyoming. Unlike some areas of the county, folks like the Master Gardners always tell us not to plant till the end of May. With a few weeks left till we can get our seeds and starts in, we will have to be content with looking at seed and plant catalogs. Here’s to hoping for a good show and garden season in 2018!


Ho Ho Ho

Thank you to our customers for making 2017 a great year for Rawhide Studio! We are looking forward to what 2018 will bring. We have a few new earring styles set to debut early next year and we are cooking up new adventures for the 2018 summer show season. We will be taking our Tear Dot, Little Guy trailer on our summer adventures of course! If you see polka dots coming down the trail, that will be us. Give us a wave and a toot!
