Join us for Scary Craft Night!

As promised, Scary-Art CRAFT is crankin' up the Craft Night volume with demonstrations of techniques & products. For May's Night of the Crafters, we've got an incredibly hot technique (and an even hotter instructor).

Whether you call it "refashioning," "DIY" or "altered clothing," you've probably seen that there are TONS of books flying off the click-and-mortar shelves detailing how to make the most of your old T-shirts, jeans and other closet cast-offs.

But seriously, wouldn't it be easier to just watch how it's done?

Sure it would!

That's why we are proud to announce that our very first Night of the Crafters demo will feature Miss Samantha Marie Grove. Sam Marie is an artist, DIY fashionista (is that an oxymoron?), and darned nice girlie, who will demonstrate techniques for refashioning a plain ol' men's T-shirt into something that will make the boys go "hubba hubba!"

Sam Marie's altered "Tank Girl" tank started life as a basic graphic T-shirt
and became a pretty AND edgy camisole with some scissors, a little lace and a needle & thread.
The off-the-shoulder Ramones top sure won't be mistaken for a boxy boy shirt now!

Not a punk rocker? Are you a bit on the modest side? Maybe you want to learn how to refashion clothes for your tween, or just bring a too-big shirt in a little? Worry not! Sam has techniques that will work for what you want to do.

If you'd like to work on your own "refashion" project, bring a T-shirt, a pair of scissors, a needle & thread (to match your shirt) and any embellishments you'd like to add to:

presented by Scary-Art CRAFT and Side Show Studios
May 27th (and every 4th Tuesday), 6:30 to 9pm
Side Show Studios
5635 Freeport, #6 - Sactown
And please, if you can, BYOC (bring your own chair!)

As always, if you have any feedback on our meetings or if you would like to suggest (or volunteer for) a future demo/tutorial, please e-mail us at

See you on Fourth Tuesday (and don't forget your "monster" craft).
