We're excited to host a monthly group for new parents who love to make things! Whether you're an amateur, a pro, or somewhere in between, come relax with a project and get to know fellow new parent makers. This is a group designed for parents of infants/toddlers aged newborn - 2 years. You bring your project- this can be anything from knitting, sewing, painting, drawing, stitching... whatever you can carry as long as it isn't dangerous for young ones to be around (i.e. something with fumes, or something that can't be contained well)- and your baby. We provide light refreshments including coffee, tea and snacks. We have many tools and equipment available that you can borrow during meet ups- just include your request in your RSVP and we will let you know if we have it and if it can be set up for you to use. Contact us with any questions! Suggested attendance fee: $5 w/o equipment use, $10 w/ equipment use. RSVP required
Thursday, September 19th, 6:30pm-9:00pm AND/OR Wednesday, October 16th, 6:30pm-9:00pm
Bring a project and join us for some good new-fashioned social sewing! If the weather is nice, we'll swing open the glass door and take in the summer evening. We supply snacks and N/A drinks (BYO beer/wine/cider), machines, and basic sewing equipment- but feel free to bring your own if you prefer. You supply the project and good company. :) Come learn from each other and get inspired. Everyone from beginners to pros are welcome! Suggested attendance fee: $5 (pay on-site) RSVP required If you are a beginner and would like a get-started tutorial, join us at 6:30pm. If you'd like a machine orientation too, bring your machine and its manual. Tutorial fee: $20 (pay on-site) RSVP required
Friday 9/6, 6:00pm-9:00pm, All are welcome!
Come one, come all and join us for First Friday at Portland Craft Bar! Each month we select an art or craft to do in the studio. Come anytime between 6pm and 9pm to take a look at what we're doing and join in and do it yourself! No need to register or RSVP, just show up and give it a try. Watch our Facebook and Instagram feeds to find out what we're doing each month.
October 4th: Join us to make some sweet, little needle-felted acorns! Learn the basics of needle felting and leave with a treat. For the littles, we'll have felt sheets out so they can make some fun fall-themed creations. This is our Halloween-themed First Friday (that's why we chose the craft of stabbing, I mean, felting), so we just might be in costume too! Stay to visit the other awesome open art studios in our building and start your month off right!
