Craft Bar with Etsy Labs at MOCFA continues! Join crafter extraordinaire Katy Kristin as she teaches you how to take old sweaters and turn them into cute and cuddly plushies or upcycled cup cozies with sweaters donated by Crossroads Trading Co.! April’s CRAFT BAR is free for students, and will feature live music from local favorite Allie Simpson. Not feeling the plushitude? Join Amelia Strader and Marita Klements in the stitch-n-bitch area for free-form knitting or crocheting with yarn donated by Simplicity. Take inspiration from the gallery and the store while you explore the creative process, socialize, and enjoy refreshments from Trumer Pils.

Resident Crafter Amelia will be doing the Etsy Virtual Lab ON www.etsy.com at 1 PM on April 1 – be sure to check it out if you can’t make it to Craft Bar!
