Hey there, it's Robert and I'd like you to meet Gluey Gluerson (I didn't name him, they didn't ask me) the officlal Felt Club mascot crafted by the amazing Heidi Kenney of My Paper Crane. Who is this intriguing character you ask? What makes him stick? Read his recent interview with the fine folks over at CRAFT Magazine/Blog.
If you’re in the Los Angeles area this coming Sunday, July 15, from 11am-7pm you'll have a chance to meet Mr. Gluerson at the Felt Club: XL Summer event with 70+ crafters from SoCal and beyond (click here to check ‘em out!) who’ll show off their latest and greatest D.I.Y. wares for your handmade-shopping pleasure! You’ll enjoy fresh and delicious snacks and sweets from renowned Eagle Rock eatery Auntie Em’s Kitchen and a selection of all-natural sparkling fruit juices from IZZE (free while supplies last) - in addition to happy shopping music from our DJs, Dirty Robot and Lance Rock. The event will be hosted by lovable L.A. “histo-tainer” Charles Phoenix!
Seriously, if you're looking for great handcrafted plush don't miss this event.
With your $1 donation at the door, you’ll receive a ticket to win a door prize, and the first 250 visitors will be treated to swag bags full of books, magazines, craft patterns, coupons, buttons, li’l gifts and samples from our sponsors and vendors (sneak peeks are viewable in our Flickr pool!). They’ve even published an event program full of D.I.Y. craft projects (limited to 2,000 copies)!
The last Felt Club was held in December 2006 and featured on the Your LA news magzine show. Check out the following clip from the tv segment:
