As the law stands, an activist that is convicted of a federal crime (and any demonstrators nearby that may have been arrested) can have the Terrorism Enhancement added to their conviction. This allows further punishments to be added to the original punishment for the crime, and a conviction of “terrorism.” There is a window of opportunity to petition a hearing before the Supreme Court to appeal the newly added Terrorism Enhancement. The appeal could change the law for those in the future wishing to have their voices heard. The filing fees will total $1800. Join in this evening and be part of the $1800 to protect the the civil rights of future activists.

Small Craft Skillshare and Pop-Up Shop: One Girl Circus and my marigold

Amid all the bustle and distraction, a chance to pause and focus on what really matters. To give time and attention to needle and thread, family and friends, craft and conversation. The Small Craft September 8 pop-up shop and skillshare is a celebration of the hand stitch. And the hand stitch is a celebration of our true priorities.

For this month’s skillshare, we’re proud to welcome back Karen LePage of One Girl Circus. Karen is a talented seamstress, a crafty author, and a longtime supporter of Small Craft. With her help, you’ll make your own wrist cuff or headband, while learning to stitch designs and embellishments on knit fabrics. Stitch your own design, or choose one of the templates provided. Once you’ve learned the techniques in this workshop, you’ll be able to upcycle your favorite t-shirts into accessories, or mend-by-decoration the t-shirts you can’t bear to give up!

Materials Kit provided for $8. (Or bring your own jersey knit fabrics/old t-shirt, sewing needle, and button/craft or multiwork thread.)

September’s pop-up shop is by my marigold, aka Small Craft’s own Amy Cronkite! Amy is known, not only for her own craftsmanship, but also for her organizational work with Handmade Detroit and the Detroit Urban Craft Fair. She has a deep love of the Great Lakes, and it shows in every stitch of the embroideries she’s bringing to her shop. She’ll also have fabric necklaces and other handmade treasures, so be sure to give yourself plenty of time to browse.

This Saturday will also see the return of Detroit’s legendary street festival Dally in the Alley. If you’re spending the day at Dally, please feel free to stop by and visit us at the nearby Trumbullplex, where we’ll be sharing free coffee, tea, and homemade vegan baked goods.
