DIY Salon 2 with the Church of Craft...

Unfortunately I'll still be down South working on Cynthia's book and can't make this event. However, if I were back in New York, I'd definitely make a point of stopping by. This looks like a lot of fun!

Check out the press release below:

DIY Salon 2 with the Church of Craft

Thursday, November 6, 2008, 7:00 – 10:00 PM

$10 ($7 members)
Advanced tickets on sale September 24, 2008

Join MAD and the Church of Craft for a night of hands-on art making, music, food, and drink in celebration of the Museum's current exhibition Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary. Local do-it-yourself artists will demonstrate their personal skills and help guide you in creating your own projects. Techniques will range from weaving with unconventional materials to making yarn out of old sweaters, among other contemporary twists on classic crafts. In addition to do-it-yourself workshops, the NIY Salon will include hand-decorated snacks, craft beer, and a live DJ. Guided tours of Second Lives will be available. Over 200 people did-it-themselves at this event last year, so don't miss out this time around!

The Church of Craft is a non-denominational organization that promotes a connection to humanity, a love of life and proactive spiritual practice through the art of creating.

Oh my gosh and I missing out.
I could shamelessly promote peace, love and happiness through crafting here and not only would it be okay - it would be encouraged.

heavy sigh.
