Crown Town Make Out - Gettin' Crafty with Charlotte

Get out and make something crafty with Crown Town Handmade! We're gearing up for our first monthly Make Out session at Patchwerk Playhaus, the back room of Century Vintage, located at 1508 Central Avenue in Charlotte. Join us Thursday, April 29 at 7:30 PM. Supplies will be provided and Donna Kirby of In Ten Years will be leading this month's craft on wearable felt flowers. This is a perfect craft for Mother's Day, and you'll be able to walk away with a free gift for mom (or for yourself!). Using various colors of felt and vintage buttons, there are limitless combinations of color and style. These versatile and fun flowers can be used to embellish clothing and objects. This project is perfect for both beginner and experienced crafters. You better mark your calendars now, folks, because this one is free!

Make Out sessions will regularly occur the last Thursday of every month at 7:30 PM at the Patchwerk Playhaus. A different Crown Town Handmade artist will teach a craft to the community each month. Everyone is welcome to attend. This is a great way to meet your crafty neighbors and your local artists!
