What are you doing on Sunday, March 9th? You’re coming to the CRAFT Issue 06 Release Party at Twisted!

Diane, from DIY Alert, Crafty Pod, and the Church of Craft, and Susan, from West Coast Crafty, and author of the new book Bead Simple, are co-hosting the Portland bash here at Twisted, from 1-4pm.

Moxie will be on hand, too, demonstrating how she makes the adorable monsters on the cover of CRAFT 06. We’ll also have a hands-on craft table, where you can learn to make Pantyhose Flowers from the magazine. And we’ll have free snacks and door prizes!


We just so happen to have, in the shop, a bunch of the wonderful projects from this month’s magazine, as well – Diane‘s funky little juggling toys, Lee‘s record-bowls, clocks, and organizers, a pair of Hyperbolic Baby Pants (ala Emily), some bleached-out t-shirts, and more.

And please spread the word to other crafty types while you’re at it… Also, don’t forget that the March Crafty Wonderland sale is the same day, from 11-4, so you can hit both for a super fun afternoon out! For more fun (and free) things to do in Portland, check out the wonderful Around the Sun Blog, whose author works hard to find fun, fabulous, and free things to do in the Portland area every weekend.

And, please don’t forget to “spring ahead” on sunday morning with daylight saving time. We get an extra hour of daytime, but one less hour to sleep on saturday night. This article has five fun facts about daylight saving time, so read up, and start crossing those streets!
