Chicago Craft Social

Mark your calendars for the next Craft Social taking place on August 14 in Evanston, IL. The event will run from 7-10pm at the Evanston Vineyard Church located at 2495 Howard St., Evanston, IL 60202. The second Chicago Craft Social allows you to meet other creative types, enjoy some dessert, and spend an evening whipping up a nifty project to take home. Sounds perfect to me!

Dozens of tables will be set up in the giant lobby of the Evanston Vineyard Church & each one will feature a different project theme ranging from decoupage to jewelry making. You can bring your own project* to work on and sit with other people doing their own thing, or pick a table and join a project leader who will show you how to make something cool. Another cool aspect is that guys are welcome! If you sell your handmade goods online, run a craft store, or have a creative business you'd like to promote, you can bring promo items to place on a designated table. Space is limited, so reserve your spot now!

- Admission: $5 to help cover costs. Snacks and beverages will be provided.

- Bring: Your own supplies, if you like. A list of project choices and supplies will be listed on the blog closer to August 14.

*If you bring your own project, the organizers ask that it not involve fire, electricity, or messy stuff like aerosol sprays.
