For years, Adbusters has proclaimed the day after Thanksgiving as "Buy Nothing Friday" as a protest against the crass commercialization of our society.
Let's embrace this concept of making due with what we have and get a jump on our holiday making! I have an entire wood shop, and most everything needed for metal working (torches, hammers, saw frames and blades, files), as well as space for people to work on knitting, sewing, or whatever crafty pursuit they might be up for.
Get the drop on your holiday list or get some lingering projects done. Bring what you want to work on and have a few hours away from the kids, the relatives, and the sales. Feel free to drop by any time during the day, and you do not have to stay the full afternoon.
I'll have some nosh and tipple available, but you are also welcome to bring snacks and drinks to share. Please let me know what you'll be working on so I can set up the appropriate space, and what you're planning on bringing to eat, so we don't have 10 green bean casseroles!
Happy holidays, Geek Girls!
