Crafty Bastards

If you're of crafty persuasion but have an aesthetic that's more gritty than grandma, you'll find plenty of inspiration at Crafty Bastards, the yearly event sponsored by the Washington City Paper. You can find more information about vendors, performances, and demos here. But even if you've never touched a pair of pinking shears in your life, here's a few events that will appeal to the craftily-challenged. You could get so sucked in by the knitting lesson (10:30am-11:30am, 12:30pm-1:30pm) that you come back as a vendor next year.

Bicycle Safety The Bike Rack Booth (#59)
