In honor of National Craft Month, we’ll be linking to some of the brilliant crafts we come across online. I love this so much it almost makes me wish I had a toddler again! It’s by Roubidou and part of Made By Rae’s awesome Celebrate the Boy series.

TCL vendor Heather Valentine on marthastewart.com


The work of Heather Valentine, founder of The Sewing Loft, is a featured photo today on marthastewart.com. This is the THIRD time Martha has featured Heather’s adorable plush creations! We’re not surprised, though, as her work could not be cuter.




We are thrilled to be carrying her woodland toadstool and owl backpacks, sweet dolls with embroidered dresses, and guilt-free felt doughnuts (in a real pastry box!). In addition to being cute cute cute, items from The Sewing Loft are made using reclaimed, recycled materials – totally TCL!

Magic Loop Knitting Class – 10/25/10 @ 7:30PM

Do you hate knitting with double-pointed needles?  Well, Kathy will be holding a class next Monday that will teach you how to knit in the round without them.  It’s magical!  She’s betting that you’ll be so into “magic loop knitting” that you’ll be inspired to knit a toasty pair of socks.  Here are the details:

Monday, October 25 from 7:30PM to 9:00PM ($25)

We’ll be taking reservations for the class until Friday evening.  If you’d like to sign up, please call: 201/944-3311, e-mail: info@thecraftlounge.com or visit our handy-dandy website: http://thecraftlounge.com/.  I feel loopy already.


Carve a Pumpkin That’s Squirrel-proof!

I can’t tell you how many complaints I’ve heard about rabid squirrels destroying people’s poor pumpkins.  Well, we’ve found a way to foil those pesky critters: Faux Pumpkins!  They look just like the real thing, but they’ll never get moldy & they don’t taste great either!  We have 4 spots open for the Faux Pumpkin Carving Class (Family-Friendly).  Enrollment is open until Thursday.

Faux Pumpkin Carving ~ $25 ~ 6 spaces

Saturday, October 16 from 2 to 3:30PM

We’ll supply you with a very realistic-looking faux pumpkin, and we’ll teach you how to carve that baby so that you can enjoy it year after year, and no one will be the wiser.

To register, visit: http://thecraftlounge.com/, or e-mail: info@thecraftlounge.

Wow.  What a fun night we had celebrating our 2nd year anniversary.  Thanks to everybody who turned up.  We ate tons of cookies, drank quite a bit of raspberry quince iced tea and caught up on everyone’s summer activities.  Oh, and we have winner for the Free Workshop Raffle.  Susan Grey is the lucky recipient.  Congrats, Susan.
