Come Craft With the Etsy Labs: Crochet Night with Kim Kotary handmade and vintage goods

Why revel in your crafty ambitions alone? Come crochet with us (all levels welcome) — whether you’re in Brooklyn or anywhere in the world. Join us for our weekly Craft Night in our online multi-user chat room, the Virtual Labs, or in person at the Etsy Labs in Brooklyn. Craft Night occurs every Monday from 4-8 p.m. ET at 325 Gold Street, 3rd floor in Brooklyn, New York and in the Virtual Labs. Drop by our space in Brooklyn anytime between 4-8 p.m. to craft with us. Craft Night is a time to make things, sharpen your craft skills, meet new friends, and hang out.

Not in Brooklyn? Join us online for a live broadcast and demo from Craft Night in the Virtual Labs starting at 5 p.m. ET. Click here to see what time 5 p.m. ET is in your hometown.




On Monday, June 15, we are hosting a crochet Craft Night at the Etsy Labs.

Kim Kotary, textile maven extraordinaire, will be joining us to share her crochet skills with everyone at Craft Night. In honor of all things summery, she has whipped up a watermelon potholder pattern for us to try out at Craft Night. Be sure download the pattern here.

Whether you have never touched a crochet hook before or are a seasoned pro, we hope to see you on Monday! If you have a crochet hook and yarn, please bring those supplies along with you. We will also have extra materials on hand for you to use at the Etsy Labs. If you already have a crochet project in progress, bring it along!
