Krewedo Craft teaches kids to sew down by the bayou

On Friday June 20, KrewedoCraft paraded down the bayou to Destrehan to assist with St. Charles Library System's Teen Summer programs. The challenge was to help students learn to recycle old clothing into new fashions.
The teens worked with old tshirts and transformed them into new designs using scissors and sewing machines.
In just two hours and a lot of nailbiting later, each teen went home with their own creation.
Way to go green Destrehan! KrewedoCraft loves ya!

Fabulous KrewedoCraft Throws

Check out this fantastic light switch cover from Yabettasupadont on etsy.

What better way to show your NOLA love (and remember to turn of lights you arent using, thus saving energy and reducing the impact of global warming on our atmosphere and hopefully on future hurricane seasons to come) than with these little cuties? Colors are seafoam and Mardi Gras Purple!

GoodChildren Easter parade was a blast

We had such a great time at the Easter Parade. First off, the handmade throws were amazing and a big hit with the crowd.Phil and Teena Confetti made handmade Moai,fabric easter eggs and necklaces. Maria had keychains, magnets and lightswitch covers.

The costumes were out of control. Do you see these ladies with the Easter Basket hats? Cant believe the wind didnt blow them away.

There were tons of bunnies. Some happy. Some tired. A few were just too something.

So many handmade wonderful things went out like candy, baby dolls, and eggs full of craft goodness.

The crowd and parade go-er favorite, had to be the opposite machine, which was created by Helen Hill, the filmmaker who was killed here last year. In the opposite machine you put in a card with your troubles, and then you exchange your troubles for something else.

Krewe do Craft hits 9th ward cleanup

We got this email from Ann Marie with Box of Wine:
Ask what you can do for New Orleans!

Do you feel ever so slightly guilty that people from all over the country are pouring into New Orleans this month to help us out?

Do you long for volunteer opportunities in New Orleans so you can tell your grandchildren how you helped rebuild New Orleans ?

Do you want to spend the last day of Lent atoning for your sins?

Obviously living here post-K is rebuilding and atonement enough, and sometimes about all we can handle. But if you are interested in volunteering, some neighbors are organizing a clean-up day in the 7th Ward for Saturday, March 22. We are meeting at 8 AM at 2200 Lapeyrouse, which is the home and office of The Neighborhood Story Project. From there we will fan out in all directions to pick up trash, clean storm drains, pull ads off telephone poles and give the area bounded by N. Claiborne and N. Broad, Esplanade and St. Bernard a good spring cleaning.

If you can donate a box of garbage bags and bring your own rake and gloves that would be great. If you have a weed eater and can bring that along too that would be truly amazing since we have a plethora of overgrown weeds in vacant lots and in front of empty houses.

Also, if you would like help organizing a clean-up in your area, helping us out would be a great way to get started on your own neighborhood clean-up day.

Hope to see you on Saturday morning! Happy Equinox to all!

Ann Marie

we'll be meeting up in the morning, a bit past 9 to help out for a bit and then its back to finish the zine for the parade

More throws

What could be nicer for the craftista than this handy pincushion? Made with organic cotton and stuffed with organic batting, this baby will withstand a category 1 but probably not levee failure. Ink most likely not organic!
