Before I launch into the details of our next Craft Night, I wanted to give a big shout-out to Heidi Kenney from My Paper Crane and everyone who joined us at Craft Night this past Monday to inaugurate our brand new 7th floor space and Magnolia photo booth, while making truly spectacular valentines for the Special Delivery project. It was an evening of great creative energy and so lovely to have you all back!

On Monday, February 7, stencil master Ed Roth from Stencil1 will be teaching us how to make stenciled wooden valentines. We will again be collecting cards for Citymeals-on-Wheels, as part of the Special Delivery project. Ed with also have on hand some of his Stencil 101 Stationery Kits.

Ed Roth started his company, Stencil1, in Brooklyn, NY in 2004. Stencil1 designs and sells laser-cut reusable stencils inspired by stencil graffiti, with imagery ranging from urban and eclectic to nature-inspired. The company’s aesthetic lies somewhere between street art and decorative arts. So, please do stop by during Craft Night to say hello, see the new space, take a picture in the new photo booth and craft for a good cause!

Where:  55 Washington Street, Suite 712  (7th floor) Brooklyn, New York, 11201
When
: Monday, February 7. Drop in between 4-8 p.m.
RSVP
here.
Webcast: For those of you who can’t make it in person, we’ll be doing a live demo via Livestream (instead of the Virtual Labs). You can check out the feed right on the Etsy Community page.

    Note! I made a painting with one of Ed's stencils a while back and listed it here not knowing it was a craft supply (aka free use) and he came. after. me. Emails, blog comments, I was 100% totally cooperative and he (or someone claiming to be him) flipped out over an honest mistake. Please let people doing this Lab know NOT to list anything they make with his stencils here ever!!!
