The hint of spring is in the air! We’ve decided to encourage it along by crafting up some lovely blooms made of felt and fashioning them into a delightful brooch or two.

Our next monthly craft night is on Thursday, March 10 from 5-7pm. Once again, it’ll be hosted right here at Modern Mouse…and all you crafty adults are invited!

{ who }
The lovely Polly Conway — creative dilletante with a love for anything handmade, proprietor of Pollyannacowgirl and writer for ReadyMade Magazine craft blog — hosts this month’s craft night.

{ what }
Felt Bloom Brooches, of course! Polly will demonstrate a couple different varieties you can make, and the rest is up to your imagination.

Feel free to bring your own supplies, or just share ours. If you have fabric scissors, we highly encourage you to bring them so there’s enough to go around. Otherwise we’ll supply the materials (felt, glue, needle and thread, brooch pins, stencils, etc), along with light snacks and beverages!

{ when }
Thursday 3/10/11 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. Please RSVP so we’re sure to have enough space and supplies.

{ where }
Modern Mouse
2228-A South Shore Center
Alameda, CA 94501

{ why }
Because making stuff is fun.

{ how }
We were inspired by the tutorials over at one little minute and the accidental crafter and may borrow from some of their techniques, and of course Polly’s got some tricks of her own she’ll be sharing with you!

We look forward to seeing you there! Please RSVP so we’re sure to have enough space and supplies.
