Lark Crafts editor Kathleen McCafferty is celebrating the publication of her first book, Craft-In, with a book release at Barnes & Noble (83 S. Tunnel Rd., Asheville, 296-7335) on Saturday, Oct., from 1-3 p.m. But this is not just any book release, it’s also a and craft-along party hosted by Craft-In designer and contributor Suzie Millions.
“Suzie Millions has made special little ghoul girl kits for us to make, and Jodi’s sending along some of her awesome Short Street Cakes cupcakes,” says McCafferty. “There are free limited kits and cupcakes, and Craft-In will be available for sale.”
To recap: There are cupcakes involved, people. Cupcakes and crafts. For real. Learn more here.
From the Lark website: “The recent resurgence of interest in craft circles, stitch-and-bitches, and indie craft fairs shows that crafters want to connect in person. But what group projects will scratch everyone’s crafting itch? Each of the 12 booklets in this boxed set is chock-full of projects by standout authors, top etsy designers, and the brightest indie crafters. The host of each booklet provides a unique perspective on prepping the gathering space, the best supplies, and even music to get everyone in the mood. The hip projects include a retro paper doll, funky crocheted cacti, “shrinky dink” earrings, and an embroidered pet portrait. Beginner friendly and easily portable, Craft-In is the perfect way to get friends, families, and craft dabblers together to try something new.”
