It’s time to get out your basket of needles and thread and join us for some quality crafty times! This month we’ll be gather at Neptune Coffee (in Greenwood) on Sunday, August 8 from 1pm-3pm and hear brand new albums by Menomena (7/27 release on Barsuk) and Darren Hanlon (9/21 release on Yep Roc).  We’ll have a raffle with Menomena and Darren Hanlon -themed prizes, a Neptune beverage special, and a stitching tutorial!

Stitch n B!tch class:
Bring your own craft or join in our first imaginary craft tutorial led by Shrie of Lo and Behold (see flickr / website for crafty portfolio). Shrie is going to show those of us interested how to embroider. If you want to join in, we’ll have imaginary-themed stitching kits available so you don’t even have to guess what supplies you’ll need to get started (but make sure to bring your own scissors – those things are expensive!). Shrie will bring everything we need to learn to stitch and leave the Imaginary Crafty Listening Party with a finished and beautifully stitched craft.

If you want us to bring stitching starter kit for you to the event, RSVP to [email protected] by August 1st. The cost for each stitching kit is a measly $10 a piece, which just covers the cost of the materials themselves and you can pay at the time of the event.

What crafty project are you working on? What new release are you most looking forward to? We can chat all this and more on August 8 at Neptune Coffee.
