Craft Nights abound! If you are hankering to do something handmade, there are lots of new options up around town to get out and get crafty with others.
Etsy Handmade Nights – Thanks to Etsy Germany, Munikum and HEi, regular craft nights have been taking place monthly, pretty regularly since summer of 2011. For a schedule of upcoming events visit the Munikum site, better get on their mailing list. This is a fun, and international (French, American, German, Singaporean, etc.) crowd that is sponsored by Etsy but organized by a woman named Charlotte Bason. Crafts include things like: knit nights, washi tape paper projects, embroidery, wire jewelry and stamp making. Supplies are usually provided, but it’s always a good idea to bring any related projects or equipment if you’ve got it. The next craft night will be doing Sticken (embroidery) on Thursday, February 23 (usually starts around 18:30 or 19:00 check the Munikum site to be sure.)
Knit Nite Unplugged – ‘Just Beer and Knitting. Unplugged.’ This is a new event hosted at Art Babel. Come on down, bring your needles and some yarn. It’s a chance to start a new project, work on an old one and meet some new (or old) friends in the process. Get more info, get on the mailing list or confirm at the Facebook event here. Then first meeting is Tuesday, February 28 at 19:30.
TT Stitch and Bitch – Okay, this option is not so new, and to be honest it may no longer even exist. For those that hang out at TT (you know who you are) this thread mentions Sunday Night Stitch and Bitches that take place at cafes around town. Perhaps worth some follow up .
