SPINS & NEEDLES, a new craft night bringing together the DIYers of Ottawa, is here. Bring your own project or feel free to make whatever using available materials!  DJs Jason Pelletier and Zattar will be on the decks spinning funky house, soul, funk and 70s tunes. The first event takes place Thurs. Feb 17th in the craft-conducive atmosphere of Caf Dekcuf (221 Rideau, 2nd floor, 8pm to 2 am, 19+)

For all hip crafters and non-crafters who want to share ideas, trade materials, barter for handmade items, hear some good music, and have a few drinks. . .

This sounds awesome! My husband's band plays there occasionally, and it's definitely a great cozy get-together space. I will definitely get the word out on my blog and pass this along. Is it a one time event, or will this a regular event?

Thanks manus for getting the word out! Yes Cafe Dekcuf is a central, very cozy space to help us get our craft on. There's been a lot of good feedback about the night from everyone I've talked to and they are pretty excited that the night is starting up.

This will be a monthly event (so everyone in Ottawa show your support for DIY by coming out!) More details about next month to come in the next couple of weeks.
