Craig Conover

Craig Conover of Sewing Down South is throwing a Pillow Party at ETC in downtown Aberdeen. 

Eloise Trading Company (ETC) is hosting an event dubbed “Pillow Party with Craig Conover,” one of the stars on the Bravo Southern Charm reality TV show, on Saturday, Oct. 19, from 3-5 p.m.

These events began as a way to showcase Conover’s Sewing Down South pillow line. Fans can come to downtown Aberdeen to meet the 30-year-old and maybe even some of his Southern Charm friends. The event will include local food, drinks and musicians, plus prize drawings throughout the day.

Tickets are free and will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis starting at 2 p.m. Tickets guarantee your chance to meet Conover and have him sign any merchandise purchased through Sewing Down South, which will be available at ETC that day.
