Come Craft at Etsy Labs With Needlefelting Machines

Dec 1, 2011

by Julie Schneider handmade and vintage goods

You’re invited to a festive Craft Night to kick off December at the Etsy Labs in Brooklyn, NY. Our friends from Simplicity will show us how to make felted ornaments from roving, yarn and other scrap fabrics on their amazing Deluxe Needlefelting Machines — imagine a sewing machine, but with 12 felting needles for super fast felt action! For those of you who have been too impatient for needlefelting in the past, this Craft Night will probably win your heart. Also, expect a raffle for a few goodie bags full of treats from Simplicity…

All skill levels are welcome and all materials will be provided. If you have some felt, yarn, or old sweaters you would like to use to make your ornament, bring those along too.

Where: 55 Washington Street, Suite 712  (7th floor) Brooklyn, New York, 11201
Monday, December 5 . Demos will be held hourly at 4:15, 5:15, 6:15, and 7:15 p.m.
Online Lab:
 If you can’t make it in person, we will be hosting a live Online Lab at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Upcoming Events with the Etsy Labs:
12/1: Etsy + West Elm Handmade Holiday Workshop
12/1: Craft Night in LA & Craft Bar in SF
