Remember when I said that I thought the XL Felt Club was not good for the community? Felt Club founder Jenny responded that there were smaller events in the works, and this weekend I received an email outlining one of those events: ongoing craft classes/demos at the County Fair. This sounds like a huge step in the right direction, and while I’d still like to see a more frequent opportunities for vendors, I am really glad to see Felt Club encouraging people to make things. I know there were similar events at Whole Foods, but I think the fair is likely to offer better space and time for classes. Hooray, Felt Club!
