"We've got a new community that we're joining [...] Sewing Down South is growing to another one of my favorite cities," the Southern Charm cast member said in the Instagram Story video.

More recently, Craig revealed the progress of his Nashville store, bringing Shep Rose along for the ride. 

On May 7, Craig hopped on his Instagram Stories to share some in-progress pics of the new store, showing how Shep was helping demo the shop to make way for the expansion of Sewing Down South. 

"We have broken ground on SDS Nashville thanks to Shep Rose!" Craig exclaimed in the video of Shep breaking through a wall in the space.

In addition to that video, Craig went on to share more photos of him and Shep enjoying their time in Nashville together, posing at an event in front of a wall filled with greenery, multicolored florals, and "NASH" written out in white flowers. The pair again posed in front of another mural painted on a brick wall that states, "I believe in Nashville."

Details Craig Conover and Austen Kroll's Charleston Bar, By the Way

In addition to Sewing Down South, Craig also recently took on another business venture with his pal, Austen Kroll: opening a new restaurant — a “neighborhood tavern" dubbed By the Way — in Charleston. 

“Charleston has grown so much in the last few years and brought in a lot of travelers, so we wanted to create a space where locals and travelers could hang out together and enjoy the neighborhood,” Craig told Entertainment Tonight in January. “It’s going to be a really intimate space. We put a lot of thought into the design to try and make it as warm and inviting as possible. We’re leaning into the local, upscale, tavern vibes, so the menu is going to have elevated bar fare and approachable cocktails.”
