Southern Charm OG Craig Conover has really been on the up and up throughout the past year or so. He and Naomie Olindo broke up and while he was heartbroken, it was time for the toxicity between them to stop. He FINALLY passed the bar exam and opened his own law firm. And his pillow business, which started as a sewing hobby, blew up with online sales, tours and more.
Craigy finally seems to be getting his act together. And while it took him a while, it’s nice to see him turn his passion for sewing into a career. He’s come a long way from sewing homemade gifts for Cameran Eubanks’ baby to appearing on HSN and selling out his pillows online. He even has a podcast with Austen Kroll called “Pillows And Beer” based on their businesses.
Craig passed a major milestone last weekend by opening his first brick-and-mortar store for Sewing Down South in Charleston. He posted on Instagram a video to hype up the opening and give a glimpse at his store. And his Southern Charm castmates were there for support. Kathryn Dennis, her boo Chleb Ravenell and her two kids stopped by to show their support. Leva Bonaparte also posted a photo at the opening to congratulate Craig.
And Instagram user @bestofbravo posted photos from the event, posting with Austen, Danni Baird, Shep Rose, John Pringle and even Patricia Altschul. It looks like she and Craig got over their little pillow fight, no pun intended, and can celebrate each other’s successes. Love that.
To no surprise, Madison LeCroy seems to not have attended the opening, but who even knows if she’d be welcome anyway. Also, it’s unclear if Craig’s new buddy Kristin Cavallari came, but if there were Bravo cameras there, we can probably count her out.
Craig is a newly single man again after his recent split from Natalie Hegnauer and is focusing on his grind. No doubt he will find another girl who appreciates his sewing, his cooking and all of his little quirks. Maybe we’ll see Craig connect with one of the Summer House cast members in the upcoming crossover, Winter House.
