Robot vs Sloth will open mid January with a grand opening of Saturday, Feb. 10th, 2pm - 8pm.
After owning Ugly Baby and La Ru for over five years, La Ru has outgrown the space and decided to close Ugly Baby and La Ru and open Robot vs Sloth in a larger location, still within the Pike Place Market. Ugly Baby and La Ru will close on December 31st, 2017.

She has been published numerous publications and blogs including The Handmade Marketplace, Second Edition and Seattle's Child. La Ru has also created crafting tutorials for Sakura of America and Epson. In 2014 and 2015 I was a speaker at Craftcation Conference in Ventura, CA.

Robot vs Sloth will carry an expanded line of La Ru items: prints, originals, shirts, and more. In addition to La Ru goods you will find a curated selection of handmade local art by some amazing Seattle artists.
Robot vs Sloth will also have a classroom! Starting in the summer of 2018, craft and art classes will be offered both to adults and children. Sign up for our mailing list if you would like to find out more.
