 482752. New York Public LibraryYes, a slice of pie will sustain him nicely during his upcoming shopping and socializing at the Spring Fling!

Come one, come all, to the latest addition to the city's calendar of craft events: the Bust Magazine Spring Fling Craftacular! It's this Sunday, April 27th, from 11:00am to 9:00pm at The Warsaw (261 Driggs Avenue in Williamsburg). The event promises photobooth fun, handmade crafts aplenty, food and drink, and dance as well.

This event is organized by Bust, a mag that has long encouraged its readers' latent crafty and DIY tendencies with regular features on making great stuff. Its latest issue (available at the Library in Room 108, the DeWitt Wallace Periodical Room), includes a sweater pattern, a tutorial on making your own flocked wallpaper, and details on how to subscribe to the Pie of the Month Club (created by an artist and pie lover who designs and sends out recipe cards each month). Really, what's not to like about pie recipes delivered to your mailbox?

The Library has years and years of back issues of Bust, so come in anytime to take a trip down alternative women's magazine memory lane.

I love that automat picture! Did you get to go this weekend?

Fling Report.

I'm glad that you like that photograph! Yes, I went first thing Sunday morning to the Spring Fling and had a great time. I picked up some letterpress with attitude from <a href="http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=64791">Rar Rar Press</a>, a Chicago letterpress printer, and was tempted by all of the other vendors' handmade goods as well. My favorite part of the Craftacular was getting to meet Diana Rupp, founder of <a href="http://www.makeworkshop.com/index.html">Make Workshop</a>, a great indie resource for learning a wide variety of craft skills. I bought a copy of her book <a href="http://www.makeworkshop.com/content/sewbook/sewbook.html">Sew Everything Workshop</a>, which includes a bunch of basic go-to patterns that I'm looking forward to trying out.
