Announcement: Craft-On at ETSY in Brooklyn

Please join us on the third Thursday of every month from 5-8 pm.
We’ll be at Etsy Labs!

55 Washington Street, Suite 712 in DUMBO Brooklyn

This place is AMAZING! The labs are home to all kinds of special tools & equipment, plus lots of donated supplies for us to use (but it would be a good idea to bring thread & stuff if you want to use the sewers). They are all about encouraging people to make stuff, just like us, so we get to have this special event every month where access to all of their goodies is totally free. If you like it there you can always go back for their Monday Craft Nights.

There is lots of big tables & chairs to spread out on. Our meetings are a casual drop in affair, come any time, bring anyone, bring anything you are working on or come & just check out what everyone else is up to. Snacks are welcome.

Sign up for the monthly e-mail update here.

Please e-mail the Very Esteemed Callie Janoff for more information.

Can’t wait to see you there!

Out Door Crafting in Brooklyn

Let’s craft outside!

Sunday June 27 4-7pm

Williamsburg Walks

Bedford Ave.

Between N. 7th and N. 8th Sts.

with our friends at


Bags for the People

(look for their signs under the blue tents in the Skillshare area)

AND a special out door sewing Sunday School with Glenn from Bags For the People!!

Yes! There will be sewing machines outside and we will learn from the master how to make our own reusable totes. These are easy and fast to make, even for a beginner. We will be part of a great outdoor party with lots to do and see. Come spend some time with us, get something to eat in the picnic block, and in general see some of the best people watching of the summer. The Williamsburg Walks are going on all weekend, so come for the day! More info about Williamsburg Walks is here.

Of course, you are welcome as always to bring your own current craft project, your friends, loved-ones, kids, snacks to share, anything and everything that inspires you to flex your creative muscles.

Don’t forget your sunscreen, sunbonnet, or parasol. You may also want a sit-uppon if you aren’t sewing under the tent.

**And make a note: our regularly scheduled craft-on July 4th will be canceled for the holiday!

I can’t wait to see you there!
