Show us the best of handmade clothing and accessories! Anything handmade is game!
Sweatshops suck! Buy Handmade!

Dstructionistas is a community for people who like tearing shit apart and putting it back together again. Seamstresses, crafters, knitters, crocheters, jewelry artisans, and more!

Feel free to promote your auctions, website, or selling journal, but keep it relevant. This is a place for THINGS YOU'VE MADE.
Unique/one-of-a-kind/small run items only. That being said, anyone is free to join and post, but please keep images to around 400x400 pixels and PLEASE ONLY POST AN AD FOR YOUR AUCTIONS/WHATEVER ONCE . Keep it civil- if you don't have something nice to say, then shove it.
