We’re Back…


We’re back from vacation and we’ve already gotten in some new merchandise. Fans of Jennifer P.’s mugs rejoice!


Gone Fishing…

We’re taking a little break, but we’ll be back to school with the rest of the kids on Thursday, September 6th. Keep an eye out for our fall class schedule, which will arrive in your mailbox soon. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the summer, and we’ll see you in September!

Celebrating FOUR Years!



Running The Craft Lounge over the past four years has been a dream come true for us. We certainly couldn’t have done it without YOU. So please come on by during Leonia’s National Night Out, and let us treat you to some tasty sweets, good company, and a chance to win a free workshop:


Tuesday, August 7th

6:30 to 9:30pm


The Craft Lounge

324 Broad Avenue

Leonia, NJ 07605



La Bella Candela in the house!

Many of you have asked when we’d be getting more of these beautiful votive holders in — well, the they’re here! We have a nice, big selection in gorgeous colors, so stop on by to pick one out for yourself.



Also, please note that there will be no Drop-in Saturday craft this week. Join us next Saturday to make some beaded wine charms or rings.

Taking a little break…


We will be taking a little break and will be closed from 12/28 – 12/31. (Shaina’s Mixed bag WILL meet, as scheduled, on Monday 12/26 at 7:30pm.)


Thank you and happy holidays to all of our customers. This year has truly been a pleasure, and we look forward to continued good times with you in 2012.

Knitting with Shaina!

We are so excited to welcome Shaina Bilow, formerly of The Skein Attraction, to The Craft Lounge. Shaina is a Craft Yarn Council of America Certified Knitting Instructor, and she will be bringing her vast knowledge of all things knitting to TCL. Beginning Wednesday, March 30, she’ll be teaching in our shop and we couldn’t be more thrilled!




11:00 am – 1:00 pm Wednesdays:

March 30, April 6, 13 & 20

$60 for four sessions; $20 for one session


Bring any knitting or crochet project to this class and get the guidance of an expert for two hours. This is a great class if you want to learn a new technique, start a project beyond your current skill level, or get back on track with older projects. Anything goes! As we work together week to week, you’ll notice your skills and confidence growing.
