The DIY Salon
with the Church of Craft

Thursday, March 6, 2008, 7:00 - 10:00 PM

Join MAD and the Church of Craft for a night of hands-on art-making, music and
refreshments in celebration of the Museum’s current exhibitions Pricked: Extreme
Embroidery and Cheers: A MAD Collection of Goblets. Local do-it-yourself artists
will demonstrate their personal skills and help guide you in creating your own
projects. Techniques will range from unconventional embroidery to button-making
to fiber text and many other contemporary twists on classic crafts. In addition to
do-it-yourself workshops, the Salon will offer a selection of craft beers,
hand-decorated snacks and live DJ. The DIY Salon is a free event, open to the public
with all materials provided. Guided tour of Pricked: Extreme Embroidery at 7:30 PM.

Participating artists include:
Cal Patch, Alison Shanik, Iviva Olenick, Mary Izet and others, who will each provide
instruction for the beginner to the advanced creator. DJ Brett Webb will spin all
night and Elaine Cohen of the Cupcake Caboose will serve up artistic treats.

*** Volunteers also needed to help set up, work with the craft stations, & break-down.
No embroidery experience necessary! You could volunteer for the whole time or from
6:30-8:30 or 8:30-10:30. Super fun!!! Email me to volunteer. Thank you!!!

I absolutely can't wait to see you.

Your Humble Servant
The Very Esteemed Callie Janoff
