A lot of neighbors were dismayed to learn that SCRAP DC closed up shop in Brookland in November 2015. Now we were happy to learn that they are doing pop-up events in the area for those who want to get their craft on. From a recent SCRAP DC newsletter:
SCRAP is shaking off the winter doldrums and coming back with new activities to welcome the spring and get on our way with rebuilding our operation. We do not yet have a new space, but we are happy to be partnering with ReCreative Spaces in Mt. Rainier so that we can maintain a presence in the area. We want to thank all of you — our diehard customers, cheerleaders and donors – whose support keeps us going and working towards the next phase.
Our first order of business is to have a pop up store and the first of a series of classes. Yes, you heard it right – a chance to find treasures for your projects and nourishment for your creative hunger. The inventory will be a treasure trove of beads and jewelry making supplies (mostly mid-higher end), some paper and general craft supplies, fabric and sewing supplies, collage packs, and kits for making banners, hot rods, robots and other kids crafts. We may find a few other things along the way, so if what you crave isn’t on this list, there’s a chance it might show up.
What better way to begin classes than to commemorate Mothers’ Day? Read on for more details and registration information. anyway! Our hope is that we will be able to prime the pump and continue these activities until such time as we generate sufficient funding to cover the costs of a new store. Therefore, your continued patronage is most important and appreciated.
