News from the Etsy Labs: 10/20 Craft Night

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Have plans on Monday night? Well, you do now! Dust off your crafty pants and come join us for our weekly Craft Night at the Etsy Labs in Brooklyn. Each craft night is also broadcast live into in the Treehouse room of the Virtual Labs. All demos will be shown both in the Labs in Brooklyn and in the Treehouse online.

Craft Night occurs every Monday from 4-8pm EDT at 325 Gold Street, 3rd floor in Brooklyn, New York. Each week the Etsy Labs
organize a skill-sharing project. We provide supplies, tools, snacks,
and know-how. Participants are also welcome to bring their own projects
to work on independently. Craft night is a time to make things, learn
new skills, and hang out

This week, on Monday, October 20, we’ll be creating Halloween coasters with Kimm of The {NewNew} York team and kimmchi fame.
She will show us how to create Halloween-inspired drink coasters out of felt and thread. These coasters are perfect for fall decorations and Halloween parties. We will demonstrate
how to cut and stitch these spooky household accessories.
This
project is open
to people with all levels of sewing experience. If you would like to add a cork backing to your coasters, feel free to bring some sheets of cork with you. (That’s optional.) All other supplies will be provided.

If you are joining us virtually for Craft Night this week and would
like to sew along with us, you’ll need a few supplies:

- Sheets of felt (mainly black + contrasting colors)
- Scissors or craft/exacto knife
- Embroidery floss + needle
- Sheets of cork (optional)
- Templates for the coasters. Download coaster templates here.

  Or, just be ready to take some notes and
see if this is a project you’d like to try out later on.
