News from the Etsy Labs: 5/12 Craft Night

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Got 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 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 project to work on. Craft night is a time to make things, learn new skills, and hang out. 


This week, on Monday, May 12, we will be making pennant-style Etsy banners. These little flag banners will be used to aid teams who apply through the Team Grant program. We will demonstrate applique and basic sewing techniques.

If you are joining us virtually for Craft Night this week and would like to make a banner for your team or yourself to bring to craft fairs and other such events, be prepared with a few supplies. You will need: fabric, fabric scissors, fusible web, an iron, a sewing machine (or needle and thread, if you don’t have access to one), and any embellishments you would like to use (such as ribbons, buttons, lace, sequins, bedazzling supplies, puffy paint, etc).

See you Monday!

    What a great idea! Our Team could totally use a pennant style banner, our big old one is great or fence hanging as a back drop, but these look nice and light, could go anywhere! Coool
