Hand-Made: Hand-Made Crafternoon with Kelly Rand: September 15, 2012


Join crafty librarian Jessica Pigza of the Rare Book Division and Crafternoon author Maura Madden at this free DIY day, with special guest Kelly Rand, Program Director at Hello Craft.

Kelly will talk about Hello Craft’s efforts to support independent crafters and we’ll celebrate the publication of Handmade To Sell: Hello Craft's Guide to Owning, Running, and Growing Your Crafty Biz. We’ll also, of course, get down to business and stitch up some felt business card holders and receipt organizers! We’ll have supplies on hand as well as a spread of crafty books from the Library’s collections for browsing.
