If you live in the NYC area, please join me on Saturday, December 17 at the New York Public Library for an embroidery Crafternoon event!!
Crafternoon is a series of crafting events that take place at the historic and beautiful New York Public Library, hosted by crafters extraordinaire Maura Madden and Jessica Pigza. For this event, I’ll be teaching you how to do hand embroidery and use it to embellish felt (or almost anything else)! We’ll have felt and embroidery supplies on-hand to make a felt version of the Folded Flower Bowls from Sewing in a Straight Line, or to make felt Christmas tree ornaments similar to the ones I created for my Design Sponge column last year. Or, if you have something special you’d like to embellish with embroidery, whether it’s a tote bag, a sweater, or even blank greeting cards–feel free to bring them along.
To RSVP to attend, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and tell them you’d like to attend Crafternoon with Brett Bara on December 17. Those with reservations are guaranteed a spot; others are welcome on a walk-in basis if space allows. This event will take place from 2:00-4:00pm (be there by 1:50 to claim your reserved seat) at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at 5th Avenue and 42nd Street. Check the Crafternoon site for more information, and to learn more about this wonderful series.
