Coming Up: Craft On Draught
Filed under: Brooklyn, Bushwick, Greenpoint Magic, Recession, Williamsburg
I’ve been doing a lot of spring cleaning of late. You know, getting rid of stuff you told yourself— REPEATEDLY— that you would do something with. But never did. Here’s your opportunity to dump, drink and make. Leslie writes:
Bring out your busted sewing projects, tired T-shirts, hideous hand-me-downsâ€”basically all the crappy clothes from your closet that you donâ€™t want anymore, or the stuff youâ€™ve been meaning to make awesomeâ€”for the ultimate happy hour of destruction, reconstruction, and social mixing!
You provide the scrap, weâ€™ll provide the beer, inspiration, crafting tools, and help from author-crafters Heather Ross and Kayte Terryâ€”plus special projects for purchase: ScrappliquÃ© undies, totebags, cards, jewelry boxes, picture frames, onesies and T-shirts (with that new T-shirt smell)!
WHAT: Craft in Draught Debut
WHEN: April 2, 2009.
WHY: Because it is fun and your $15.00 admission fee (or two for $10) “gets you free beer, and a raffle ticket to win a copy of WEEKEND SEWING by Heather Ross, COMPLETE EMBELISHING by Kayte Terry, grab bags of goodies from Etsy and STC Craft/Melanie Falick Books, cute fabric bundles from Heather Rossâ€™s Mendocino line, a gift certificate to Housing Works Bookstore CafÃ© , and other assorted surprises!”
HOW: JMZ at Marcy, Bedford Avenue stop of the L or the B61, baby!
