Brooklyn Craft Company, a DIY class and event space, is hosting a Catlady Craft Night and we have a free ticket to giveaway ($95 value)! Catlady Craft Night is a big crazy cat-themed DIY party for the modern catlady (cat gents are welcome, too)! Attendees can look forward to making several cat-themed craft projects including wire cat rings, painted cat figurines, cat-shaped leather change purses, canvas totes, and needle-felted cats made from wool and — yes, they’re going there — cat fur!
You can also look forward to cocktails, music, a cat meet-and-greet hosted by Brooklyn Animal Action, where attendees can snuggle with actual cats and even adopt them if they make a love match, a raffle to benefit Brooklyn Animal Action (a portion of event proceeds benefit them as well), and the sparkling company of Brooklyn’s raddest catladies!

Transforming furniture is one of the things we love to do the most at Suite Pieces (located at 162 Huron Street)! We’re going to share with you how fun and easy it is to change the look of something you already own without the hassle of sanding and priming.
