It was definitely a mad house in here this weekend.

After our blow out holiday party — which was nicely rounded out by neon decor, ice-sculptures, the Brooklyn Girls Choir, and a live nativity scene — we hosted one half of the BK Craft Central Holiday Market.

While I was thoroughly exhausted, by the end of the weekend, I was happy to spend 11 hours perusing the many works of the talented folks that filled the studio all weekend.

In case you didn’t make it, and are still looking for some great gifts for anyone, these people will surely sell to you in your last minute shopping frenzy. I’ve gathered some of my faves:

For a co-worker:

Wonderful bath salts, soaps, and scrubs from Volta Organics

 

For a good friend:

Pendant necklaces from SKT Ceramics

 

For the craft-crazy:

Hand spun, hand dyed yarn from HelloMello Hand Spun

 

For the sweet-tooth:

Oreo-Chip Cookies from Bean & Apple (highly addictive)

 

For the self-analytical writer:

Board Game spiral bound notebook from Another Work In Progress

 

AND Textile Arts Center has a few necklaces, pairs of suspenders, keychains, and woven cowls left! Stop by the studio if you want to check them out.

Thanks to all the vendors for sharing their talents, and all the customers for supporting local artists! Happy Holidays!

Last Saturday we set up shop at the 3rd Ward holiday fair. We gave some free demos, and started to introduce a pending product line (!) The crowd was great, we were set up directly in front of the band (and panda), and $1 colt 45’s! Was a blur and lots of fun.

We’ll be having some weaving workshops held at 3rd Ward in the coming months, so check back for that (or on the 3rd Ward site)

Also… big big news coming for the new year but I dont want to reveal it just yet. Stay tuned…

We will be holding a Hat Knitting workshop this coming Saturday, December 5th, from 1-5pm. Our knitting teacher, Anne Marie, is amazingly talented…(see below for some of her knitting work — she will also be teaching our Mommy+Me knitting, as well as fashion knitting!)

This workshop is part of our Gift Series — participants will walk away with a finished adult-sized hat to give as a present, as well as the knowledge of how to recreate this gift over and over again!

Details:

Hat Knitting, Saturday, December 5th, 1-5PM, $45  (materials will be available for purchase – kit $20)
