I’m super excited today to share a little news about a very exciting new project I’ve been working on: BROOKLYN CRAFT CAMP!!!! What is Brooklyn Craft Camp, you ask? Well, it’s a one-day event I’m organizing and hosting on Saturday, March 16, 2013 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn–where attendees will come for the day and take a little mini DIY vacation! There will be a fantastic assortment of hands-on crafts workshops where you can learn all kinds of fun things like print-making, crochet, embroidery, terrarium-making, jewelry-making, paper crafting, nail art and much more. AND, there will be amazing Brooklyn food from a local independent chef, good music, a cocktail hour, and goodies & giveaways! It’s total crafty nirvana, if you ask me!
I’ve been so excited while planning this event because as each element falls into place, I’ve realized that I’m basically creating my idea of a perfect day. Getting away on a Saturday to do nothing but make things with a bunch of cool crafty ladies (and who knows, maybe some gents), where everything is set up for you so you’ll have all the supplies and tools you need (plus great teachers), where you’ll enjoy delicious Brooklyn-foodie food and listen to good music, take fun photos and walk away with at least four finished projects and an amazing goody bag?! Sign me up!
Oh wait, I don’t have to sign up, I’ll be there!! But YOU should sign up! And I hope you will. The web site will go live and registration will open next week, so please stay tuned for details. In the next few days I’ll be sharing exactly what classes we’re offering and who’s signed up to teach (only some of my favorite NYC-area crafty people, that’s who!). Be sure to sign up for the Brooklyn Craft Camp mailing list to be notified when registration opens, and to be the first to know all the latest Brooklyn Craft Camp news!
(And PS, if you live out of town, why not make a weekend trip of it? Once the site is live I’ll be sharing a weekend guide with some of my favorite NYC crafty stores and spots, plus recommendations for restaurants and hotels. So come for a long weekend, and make Brooklyn Craft Camp your Saturday activity!)
I hope to see you there! xoxo
