Mar 25, 2010

by Julie Schneider handmade and vintage goods

This week we are pleased to announce bi-coastal crafting events! Join the Etsy Labs in both Brooklyn and San Francisco (and online!) for free hands-on workshops to kick off spring, here in North America. So, read on for twice the crafting fun this week…

Crafting in Brooklyn, NY:

Open Craft Night at the Etsy Labs in DUMBO

This week we’re hosting an open Craft Night, as we usually do on the lIMG_7754.jpgast Monday of each month. Instead of an organized project, this week we are throwing the doors of the Etsy Labs wide open and letting you dive into any project that strikes your fancy. Bring along any project you’d like to develop or finish during this week’s Craft Night, or start a brand new project using our tools and extra supplies. Let’s craft the pain of a chilly winter away.

When: Monday, March 29. Drop in between 4 to 8 p.m.

Where: Etsy Labs at  55 Washington Street, Suite 512 in Brooklyn, NY

Upcoming Events at the Etsy Labs in Brooklyn:

4/1: Etsy Speaker Series: The Handmade Marketplace
4/4: Church of Craft meeting
4/5: Embroidered necklaces with daniellexo
4/12: Knitted postcards with KnitKnit

Crafting in San Francisco, CA:

Craft Bar with Etsy Labs at the Museum of Craft and Folk Art in San Francisco

Craft Bar with Etsy Labs at MOCFA continues! Each month, the Museum of Craft and Folk Art features an original, easy-to-follow project, designed to guide and encourage you. For those who prefer a less structured craft experience, there is also a free-form “Stitch and Bitch” area where you can start a new project, or work on an existing one.

Join crafter extraordinaire Katy Kristen as she shares tips on how to take old sweaters and turn them into cute and cuddly plushies or upcycled cup cozies! April’s Craft Bar is free for students and will feature live music from local favorite, Allie Simpson. Take inspiration from the gallery and the store while you explore the creative process, socialize, and enjoy refreshments. More details here.


When: Thursday, April 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. PT at MOCFA. Online demo with Amelia (who penned a recent How-Tuesday project) at 1 p.m. PT.

Where: Museum of Craft and Folk Art at 51 Yerba Buena Lane, San Francisco, CA.
