Crafting and beer. Seems like the perfect combination, no? If so, then maybe you should take your drunken, creative self over to Spacecraft Brooklyn (at 355 Bedford Ave) tonight from 7-10 pm for the first-ever meeting of Craft on Draught.
The group will be meeting the first Thursday of every month, alternating locations between Spacecraft and 3rd Ward . This month is ''Spring Cleaning 1 - Swap Monster Scrapplique.'' Bring your old (s)crappy clothes to be deconstructed and remade into something awesome. I think the Craft on Draught people say it best:''You provide the scrap, we'll provide the beer, inspiration, crafting tools and help.''
They'll also have scrapplique projects that you can buy - you know, just in case your inebriation gets in the way of making something passable for yourself.
It costs $15 - $10 if you bring a friend - which gets you entrance, free beer, and a raffle ticket. They'll be raffling off all sorts of crafty goodies like books, grab bags and gift certificates.
RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, next month will be ''Spring Cleaning 2 - Felted Up for Spring,'' so you can bring in your old unloved wool sweaters and socks to be felted for you.
Just try not to spill beer on the scrapplique.
