Exciting newsflash: this fall I will be hosting Crafternoons at the Main Branch of the New York Public Library! These are going to be really exciting Crafternoons, free as always and open to everyone, but this time they’ll be in that big, beautiful building with the lions on the steps! I adore libraries and I’ve got chills just thinking about how exciting it will be to get crafty in those hallowed halls this fall.
Join me and crafty librarian Jessica Pigza (aka The Handmade Librarian) for a series of DIY days at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building (aka The Ghostbusters Library at 42nd and Fifth Avenue).
Though I cannot promise you Venkman and the rest of the Ghostbusters crew, I can promise that each Crafternoon will include a hands-on project, an inspiring spread of vintage books and magazines from the Library’s collections, and appearances by special guest makers and DIY authors.
I will post details on the craft projects and special guests for each date right here and Jessica will post them on the Handmade at NYPL Blog this fall, so check back for more information. But in the meantime, put these dates on hold. You won’t want to miss these crafty times!

But summer’s not over yet, and thank goodness for that. Summer is kind of the best, don’t you think? And with all the fun that summer provides, don’t you want to say thank you? Join me on Sunday in Brooklyn for a papercraft Crafternoon focused on creating handmade thank you notes. We’ll cut, stamp and collage our way to making unique expressions of gratitude.
Some materials and snacks will be provided, but feel free to bring some of your own to share. Hope to get crafty with you soon!
Papercraft Crafternoon at Word
When: Sunday, 8/2, from 3-6pm
