crafternoon necklace

It may be cold and blustery out, but we’re almost ready to take our summer break for Handmade Crafternoon at the New York Public Library. I made the above necklace for the last Crafternoon we had. I got a photo of me rocking my felt necklace and my mom proudly wearing her embroidered jean shirt from the late ’70s. Crafting is passed from generation to generation, and that photo is proof, baby!

This Saturday, May 15th, from 2-4pm, we will be welcoming the world renowned crafter Natalie Chanin, owner and designer of Alabama Chanin. Natalie show us her circle-spiral applique technique using jersey cotton – aka tee shirt material.  We will have some supplies available, but if you want to be 100% sure you’ll be able to go home with a sweet new customized tee, you should bring along:

We’ll also be joined by David Morgan from BurdaStyle! Check out my co-host Jessica Pigza’s blog for more info.

She’ll be sharing a project from her new book, Alabama Studio Style, and I’m sure she’ll touch on some of the cool projects featured in her old book, Alabama Stitch Book, as well. We are thrilled to have her.

I’ll post the supply list within the week, so check back here or at my co-host Jessica Pigza’s blog for more info. Jessica has been posting fabulous lists of the books she pulls for our events, and you can find the inspiring list from our most recent Crafternoon right here.
