Craft Bar at Museum of Craft & Folk Art in SF
September’s Craft Bar is sure to delight the fashionable set! Join us in welcoming back local favorites Britex Fabrics, whose stylish staff will teach you how to make your very own pair of spats. Choose from beautiful fabrics provided by Britex, learn the basics of hand sewing and construction, and get inspiration from the Museum’s gallery. After this Craft Bar, you’ll be ready to strut through town looking lovelier than ever in handmade spats.
$5 includes admission, tips, and tricks. Drinks will be kindly provided by local (and MOCFA) favorite Trumer Pils.
