Keep us in mind

A Little Something really needs to find a very affordable home. For now, we're looking for a storage unit, but what we really need is a headquarters. What do we have in mind?
  • Very, very, very inexpensive
  • Open floor plan
  • 1,000 square feet, at least
  • Has a sink
  • Has updated electrical service that won't crash if we're using sewing machines
  • Good lighting
  • Utilities included
  • Accessible 24/7
  • In Denver or Aurora, on or within a couple of blocks of Colfax (15 bus), between Broadway and Havana.
If you hear of anything, please keep us in mind and let us know about it. Our efforts at achieving growth and cohesion as an organization have really been hindered by our lack of a space to call our own.

Let us know!

A Little Something is in need of a little storage space.

We are being evicted from our original location--the basement of Sharon's house, currently where we keep all of our organization's worldly possessions.

Sharon's husband would like his basement back, and he fears that unless intervention measures are enacted now, A Little Something will soon take over the entire house. Actually, that's a plausible scenario.

If you are in the Denver Metro area and you know of a good storage place, please let us know. Here are our requirements:
  • 100 sf of space

  • Access in the evening and on the weekends

  • safe (for our stuff and for us when we're there)

  • affordable--well under $100/month

  • easily accessible from downtown, but definitely east of Broadway and north of Mississippi.
If you know of anything, please let us know. We're supposed to be out of the basement by mid-June. email:

We're here and there

It's a busy week at A Little Something. We have a sale at St. Elizabeth's Spring Garden Festival on Saturday, May 22 from 10:00-2:00. Stop by if you're in the neighborhood. We have dozens of new beaded necklaces!

St Elizabeth’s School
3605 Martin Luther King Blvd

(4 blocks west of Colorado Blvd. Click here for a map.)

The World Threads II show continues at TACtile Textile Arts until the end of the month. There are some truly wonderful items for sale from around the world.

We will be giving a presentation at TACtile this Saturday at 11:30. Three of our Burmese Karen weavers will provide some insight into the history and cultural specifics of Karen weaving and the weavers' use of back strap looms. We hope you can join us!
