Brett Bara was Marly’s guess on a special episode of the podcast this week!
Brett Bara is the founder of Brooklyn Craft Company and Brooklyn Craft Camp. With a professional background in print publishing, Brett was the founding editor-in-chief of Crochet Today magazine and is the author of several craft books. She is the host of the PBS television series Knit and Crochet Now and appears regularly on camera, including appearances on The Martha Stewart Show and more. She is a contributor to Design Sponge in addition to blogging about DIY, decor, crafts and food on her own blog, brettbara.com.
In 2012, recognizing a need for fun, stylish and accessible crafts instruction, Brett created Brooklyn Craft Camp, a one-day event that combined crafts classes with good food, great music, cool people and fun. The event was a huge success that has spawned a new initiative, Brooklyn Craft Company: a brick-and-mortar space in Brooklyn, New York which will offer modern crafty and DIY classes for adults in a fun, social setting. Who doesn’t love a crafty party day??
To prepare for their launch, Brooklyn Craft Company is fundraising via Indiegogo. Please visit their campaign page to make a contribution and help them get off the ground – and score some great crafty rewards in the process! C’mon crafty folks, lets send some awesome support Brooklyn Craft Company’s way!
Also, gratuitous picture of Fifi (for you devotees)!
Brett was so kind as to have a super fun giveaway to one of our lucky commenters! You can leave a comment with Brett’s key word, and be entered to win a Brooklyn Craft Company Tote Bag as well as a free Craftsy class! The lucky winner will be announced on next week’s special show Thursday with The Crochet Dude himself, Drew Emborsky!
Make sure you tune in next week on our regular day for your next happy dose of Marly and The Yarn Thing Podcast! 🙂
