Do you love Martha, Etsy, and all things hand- and homemade?

If you'd like to get together to craft, cook, build, get inspired, and learn from others with a DIY aesthetic, then this group is for you! Ideally, you'll be interested in crafts & projects that are both fun to make *and* have a design-oriented focus.

We meet to make...

Handmade crafts, décor, lighting, paper goods, jewelry and other craft projects
Homemade jams, pickles, bread, yogurt, chocolate, and other homesteading fun

We find projects and tackle them together from the ground up. We also make excursions to craft fairs, markets, and other fun stuff happening in the DIY-in-NYC sphere.

Join us and let’s get crafty!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
