Ah, the VHS tape. Currently a waste-of-space lick of nostalgia and soon, if not already, to head into the realm of kooky hipster collector item when those "Screw Blu-Ray" movie nights start popping up.But until then we suspect VHS tapes are just collecting dust in your closet, so it's time to clean up and get crafty. Be kind, rewind, and unreel those tapes while guest artist Suzanne Morlock teaches you how to knit little goodies with them! Craft Bar happens on the first Thursday of every month, where participants of all ages can create and meet others enthusiastic about D.I.Y. everything. Of course, no crafting event is complete without a little help from the craft czars over at Etsy, who stream the demonstrations online in virtual labs the day of the event. VHS-tape wrist cuffs probably aren't going to do much to keep you toasty this fall, but you don't need that noisy copy of Jurassic Park for much else. Craft Bar includes refreshments by Trumer Pils and Milk Bar, as well as other local food, musicians, and arts community patrons.
