The weather tomorrow is prognosticated to be horrid. For this reason I want to you, north Brooklynites, to be aware that tomorrow P.S. 132’s P.T.A. will be hosting a hootenanny for children of all ages starting at 1:00 p.m. Here’s the 411 (per the flip side of the above flier):

1. Arts and crafts courtesy of The Painted Cloud and Spacecraft
2. Zombie dance part and ghoulish games
3. Haunted Frankenstein’s Science lab
4. Corn maze and pumpkin patch
5. Cafe with yummy food, drinks and treats
6. Raffle with amazing prizes including:

  • A new Wii
  • A gift certificate for dinner for four at Rye
  • A $50 gift certificate from The Richardson
  • A $50 gift certificate from Marlow & Sons
  • “And much more!!!”

Prep your raincoats, gourmandish, geeky and drinky Greenpointers! Tomorrow may very well be your golden parachute to free eats, drinks and a Wii. What’s more, you’ll be doing it for the children!

TOMORROW: Costumes For The People!

September 30, 2009 ·
Filed under: 11211, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn 


I have spent a significant amount of my time today cleaning Chez Shitty today. This task, in some ways, has been like Christmas, e.g.; Ooh, I forgot I had (insert inexplicably weird/esoteric item here). At other times it was like something from a horror movie. Which brings me to the purpose of this post: Halloween (yours truly’s favorite of all holidays) will soon be upon us. To truly celebrate Halloween one needs a costume. Tomorrow at Spacecraft you can make one— and savor a witches brew of other delights (for children of all ages):

Leslie Hinkel writes:

Come join the ghoulish gals and guys at Spacecraft for a night of costuming, consuming (spooky punch, crafty beer, and other tricks and treats), and communing with your local creepy crafters!

We’ll have a ton of thrifted clothes to pillage and do up into whatever your Halloween heart desires, with all the supplies you need to spook up some seasonal creativity. Don’t wait until the last minute to make your costume! Come hang at our haunt and get on it already!

Materials, refreshments (of the adult AND kid varieties), and a raffle ticket to win booty are all be included in the $10 fee!

Costumes For The People
October 1, 2009 starting at 7:00 p.m.

Happy crafting— and haunting!

Southside Photos Du Jour: Poo Poo Platter

Just in time for April Fool’s Day Spacecraft present their “make it yourself” Poo Poo Platter.


As you can see some of it is rather convincing (note the presence of corn in the turd at far right. NICE.)— but there’s still no substitute for the real thing.


I’m sorry I missed out on this moving sale. Furniture, books, CDs, DVDs, Vintage duds, cool stuff and an enormous pile of shit?!? These people have everything!

Coming Up: Craft On Draught

Filed under: Brooklyn, Bushwick, Greenpoint Magic, Recession, Williamsburg 

fabricthumbnailI’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-downs—basically all the crappy clothes from your closet that you don’t want anymore, or the stuff you’ve been meaning to make awesome—for the ultimate happy hour of destruction, reconstruction, and social mixing!

You provide the scrap, we’ll provide the beer, inspiration, crafting tools, and help from author-crafters Heather Ross and Kayte Terry—plus special projects for purchase: Scrappliqué 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.

WHERE: Spacecraft Brooklyn
355 Bedford Avenue
