A Sis Boom Handmade Crafternoon: May 12, 2012


[Young women with flower garlands.], Digital ID 1596499, New York Public LibraryJoin us this Saturday, May 12, 2012, when Sis Boom creator Jennifer Paganelli comes to NYPL for the latest Handmade Crafternoon.

My co-host, Maura Madden, and I love how vibrant and sunshine-y Jennifer Paganelli's designs and patterns are, so it's perfect that Paganelli will help us to make summer party garlands and banners. And I'll have summer issues of home magazines from years past to browse and inspire you in other summer project ideas!

The event will take place in the Margaret Liebman Berger Forum at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building (on the second floor, Room 227). The event runs from 2 to 4 p.m. The event is free and you don't need to register in advance, but we do have limited seating. If you'd like to ensure that you have a spot, you are welcome to RSVP by sending an e-mail to with your name and the event date. 

As usual, there will be a spread of colorful papers, fabrics, and embellishments to use in making your banners or garlands. But Paganelli has also designed some printable banner template PDFs just for our event! If you want to make a special Sis Boom style banner, just download and print out a handful of copies of the template of your choice and bring them along!
