Turn Old Scarves Into Cuddly Plushies At Craft Bar!

Craft Bar with Etsy Labs at MOCFA continues! Each month we feature an original, easy to follow project, designed to guide and encourage you. For those who prefer a less-structured craft experience, we also offer a free-form Stitch and Bitch area where you can start a new project, or work on an existing one.

Join crafter extraordinaire Katy Kristin as she teaches you how to take old sweaters, donated by Crossroads Trading Co. and Buffalo Exchange, and turn them into cute and cuddly plushies or upcycled cup cozies! April’s CRAFT BAR is free for students, and will feature live music from local favorite Allie Simpson. Take inspiration from the gallery and the store while you explore the creative process, socialize, and enjoy refreshments.

Fee is $5 (for non-students) which includes one free beer, admission to the gallery, and supplies for the craft. Resident Crafter Amelia Strader will be doing the Etsy Virtual Lab at 1 PM on April 1 – be sure to check it out if you can’t make it to CRAFT BAR!
