Update: This Craft Night was originally scheduled for Monday, April 13. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to postpone that week’s project. We are happy to be crafting with Heather Ross this week!
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. Craft Night occurs every Monday from 4-8pm EDT at 325 Gold Street, 3rd floor in Brooklyn, New York. Craft Night is a time to make things, learn new skills, and hang out.
Spring is nearly here! Time to think about picnics in the park, outdoor brunches and rooftop dinner parties! Join us at Craft Night on Monday, May 4, and learn how to spruce up your household or wardrobe with cheerful appliquéd cloth napkins, pillowcase, t-shirts, or tote bags — based on this Scrappy Tablecloth project from Weekend Sewing by fabric and clothing designer Heather Ross. This is a great project for using up all those random scraps of fabric or apparel with large, interesting motifs and can be used to embellish all sorts of items. Please bring with you a t-shirt, pillowcase, totebag, or cloth napkins to applique upon.
Not in Brooklyn? Join us for a live broadcast and demo from Craft Night online in the Virtual Labs starting at 5pm EDT. Click here to see what time 5pm EDT is around the world (though we usually take some time to get settled and ready to go). If you are attending Craft Night virtually this week and would like to craft along with us, you’ll need a few supplies:
- One-sided fusible interfacing
- Cloth napkins, t-shirt, totebag, or pillowcase to appliqué upon
- Sewing machine
- Sewing needles
- Sharp scissors and pinking shears (if you have them)
Or, just be ready to take some notes and see if this is a project you’d like to try out later on.
Upcoming Craft Nights:
5/11: Cupcake Craft Night (5-8pm) with Cupcakes Take the Cake
5/18: Open Craft Night
5/25: Memorial Day: Craft Night canceled
