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 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 independently. Craft night is a time to make things, learn new skills, and hang out.
This week, on Monday, December 1, we will be making ornaments! We will demonstrate how to create lovely ornaments using felt and the versatile blanket stitch. These plushie ornaments are perfect to sell in your Etsy shop, decorate your home over the holiday season, and to give as gifts to friends and family.
If you are joining us virtually for Craft Night this week and would like to make ornaments along with us, you’ll need a few supplies: felt, thread, scissors, sewing needle, pencil, and any embellishments you’d like to add to your ornament (buttons, lace, trim, etc). Or, just be ready to take some notes and see if this is a project you’d like to try out later on.
