little cakes' turtle cookies

Many of you know we've rescued two turtles in the past few months. Soooooo.... tomorrow, Saturday the 26th, Little Cakes will be unveiling "Turtle Club" baked vegan goods to benefit their enormous vet bills, at the New Art Dealers Alliance County Affair.
We will be selling vegan iced sugar cookies in the shapes of our reptilian friends as well as vegan cupcakes with turtle toppers. Please come eat and support our little (and not so little) buddies! Love Hanna

NADA's County Affair
July 26th
Noon - 6pm
27th Street between 11th and 12 Avenues.
The New Art Dealer's Alliance (NADA) is organizing an event for 27th street that follows the theme of an art oriented county fair, and will be called "NADA's County Affair". It will consist of artist run game booths, swap meet, tag sales, live entertainment, DJs and a benefit raffle! The goal of this event is to create a fun "block party" type event, which both NADA members and their artists will be invited to participate in, as well as engage the general art-going public. We thought that this would be a great first time NADA summer public event. The event will occupy approximately half the block, sidewalk, and one lane of 27th street between 11th and 12th Avenues.

july events at the Etsy Labs

Etsy Finds

July 7, 2008

At the Etsy Labs, we are continually adding new classes to the schedule. After a short hiatus due to restructuring of the Labs, we are back! All classes are held at the Etsy Labs in Brooklyn. Check out our classes for

July, August and September below!

This week we are pleased to announce a very special edition of Monday Craft Night. The Etsy Labs and Cupcakes Take the Cake join forces to bring you an evening of cupcake-themed crafting. We will spend this sweet evening making cupcake-inspired crafts — which seem to be quite popular with shoppers on Etsy. We will demonstrate Gocco printing, buttonmaking, and sewing. You will learn how to print postcards, make pinback buttons, and simple plushie cupcakes. Or, let your mind run wild and create cupcake creations of any kind! Supplies are provided, though you are welcome to bring any special papers or fabrics to incorporate into your projects.

* When: Monday July 14, 6-8pm

* Where: Etsy Labs, 325 Gold Street, 3rd floor, Brooklyn, NY

Not in Brooklyn? Join us for a live broadcast and demos in the Treehouse room of the Virtual Labs. If you are joining us virtually for Craft Night this week and would like to craft along with us, you'll need to bring paper, pen, scissors, and fabric. Or, you may just want to come and watch, ask questions, and take notes.

Get your sweet tooth ready to feast on cupcakes and crafts!

Learn to sew! There are still a few spots available in the Beginning Sewing: Design Your Own Totebag. Snag a spot while you can!

Keep an eye on the Storque Events calendar for future updates from the Etsy Labs.
