embroidery to button-making to fiber text and many other contemporary
twists on classic crafts. In addition to do-it-yourself workshops,
the Salon will offer a selection of craft beers, hand-decorated snacks
and live DJ. The DIY Salon is a free event, open to the public with
all materials provided. Guided tour of Pricked: Extreme Embroidery

advanced creator. DJ Brett Webb will spin all night and Elaine Cohen
of the Cupcake Caboose will serve up artistic treats!
