Revolutionary Craft Caucus Meetup

August 17 at 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

We are meeting up to work on various sewing, knitting, and embroidery projects. Everyone is welcome to join! No previous experience needed.

Bring your ripped up jeans, shirts with missing buttons, or bags that could use an upgrade with socialist swag and we can help you learn how to mend and embellish them.

If you have another hand-craft project you are working on please feel free to bring it along.  We’ll have a sewing machine as well as scrap fabric, embroidery hoops, and a button maker, so if you don’t have a project in mind we can help you start one!
