Simply put: we love Marion & Rose's Workshop. Owner Kerri Johnson has been a huge help in bringing Patchwork to Oakland for the first time, and we're so thankful for the support!

Oaklandish: it's the business Oakland loves to support! If you walk down any street in Oakland, it's almost guaranteed that you'll see an Oaklandish tee; they've been making sure the city is represented for over ten years now.

From their website: "We hope the gear helps to spark some dialogue, as we all share in the strange luster and oddball spirit that is East Bay life." Yeah! We're honored to have them as a sponsor for Patchwork Oakland!
