I've been quiet with blogging these past few months because I've been leisurely developing a new site lesleyware.com! More on this transition + meet The Creative Cookie's new Jr. Editor in the next post! xo
I'm sew psyched about being featured in the latest issue of JET Mag (w/ actor Omari Hardwick on the cover)! The article is on how parents can support kids' interest in fashion and design. JET announced last week that they are going digital, so this is one of their last print issues. I feel extremely honored to be apart of this history. Please pick up a copy -- you'll find me cutting + sewing on page 45!
The Creative Cookie is happily continuing our crafty collaboration with the Queens Library which began in September 2012. Since, we've presented 40+ workshops to some cool kids in the County of Queens. Our 1st sessions of 2014 start this week during Spring Break (yippee!). If you know a tween in Queens, email me, we'd love to invite them to come stitch with us during our Smarty Pants Upcycling workshops!
All classes start at 4p and the dates and Libraries are as follows:
Lefferts Library 4/14 + 15
Rego Park Libray 4/16 + 23
Windsor Park Library 4/17 + 22
Come learn to make a purse or tote by recycling old clothes!
