The word actor refers to females, unless they receive rewards and the helpful professional on your flight – don’t call her a stewardess, it’s flight attendant. There is something to be said about gender neutrality in the work force, but when it comes to throwing a badass party, leave that to the hostess – tried and true – whose hard work often goes under appreciated. Let’s change that!
Books are dedicated to the subject. Hostessing is an art form in and of itself. You think you just walk into an amazing dinner party and that friendly mood, cocktail in hand and course by course perfection just happens? Continue reading →
If your family gets bored of the same old graphic tees and ya’ll have some chalk designs chops then grab a Chalkboard T-Shirt from Class Attire, a featured vendor at our Holiday Market.
What’s a Chalkboard T-shirt, anyway? It’s a t-shirt with a chalkboard on the front that you can write or draw on, then wipe off and start over again. You can even wash and dry your shirt like any other and the chalkboard is flexible, plus it doesn’t make that horrible screechy sound. It even comes with a box of chalk, and in which to hold your chalk. Continue reading →

The first Brooklyn Craft Camp is coming to Greenpoint on March 16th. This one-day event will bring skilled crafters and those seeking to learn a craft together in a playful environment that includes breakfast from Greenpoint’s own Peter Pan donuts, a talk by Jay McCarroll (winner of Project Runway Season 1) + lunch: sourced locally & prepared by a Greenpoint chef and a DJ.
Craft Camp registration includes 4 -90 minute sessions such as knitting, croqueting, terrarium building, nail art and printmaking and caters to all levels of skill. Participants will learn a new craft each session and leave with a treasure of their own making. The day convenes with a cocktail hour and as an added bonus attendees will walk away with a goodie bag stuffed to the gills with craft supplies, magazines and more.
Created by Greenpoint local & lifetime DIY-er Brett Bara, the Craft Camp promises fun and camaraderie for those who tinker and those who just want to learn something new. When asked why Greenpoint, Ms. Bara said in addition to living here, Greenpoint and Williamsburg really capture the creative spirit of Brooklyn. It’s home to many artisans and craft folk and it felt like the perfect place to bring them all together. She was inspired by taking part in other events such as the Alt Summit where crafting was woven into the events themselves. Ms. Bara wants to bring people together people who want to learn a craft with people who are skilled, get them offline and in one room to get creative.
