Transform a pillowcase into a slingbag!

So, you know how to thread your machine and how to make it go.  Let’s put that knowledge to good use!  On Tuesday, July 6 from 7-9PM, we’ll be teaching a fun sewing class where we show you a great trick we discovered in the new Martha Stewart’s Sewing and Fabric Crafts Book.  We’ll help you transform an ordinary pillowcase into an extraordinary sling bag. There are still a few spaces open if you’d like to sign up: Class Registration.

An Exclusive, One-Night Event!

Thursday, November 19th, 7:00 – 10:00 pm

Refreshments will be served.


Bold, sophisticated, stunning – Ellen Cohen’s one-of-a-kind pieces of art are a joy to wear. The Craft Lounge is honored to carry Ellen’s exquisite line of jewelry and thrilled to announce an exclusive one-night trunk show where you’ll have the opportunity to meet Ellen and see one-of-a-kind pieces that will only be available for this special evening. Cohen is known for her sculptural aesthetic, her meticulous attention to detail, and her eclectic mix of unusual gemstones – such as green garnets, lapis, sapphires, rubies, emeralds and smoky quartz. You’ll find a visually-stimulating mix of sleek and delicate pieces, as well as unique hand-fabricated sterling silver bracelets and necklaces. We hope you’ll feel as good wearing Ellen’s jewelry as she feels creating it.
