All Knotted Up



Thank you to everyone who made it out to Governors Island for a day of crafting and fun!

Governors Island is the most perfect setting for the bi-weekly Yelp! Summer Camp Series. The last event co-sponsored by The {NewNew} and Etsy: Making Sailors Knot Bracelets was a success! A quick boat ride - literally only a few minutes from Brooklyn or Manhattan - instantly transported from the hustle bustle of the city, we all gathered for a craft spectacular. Making sailors bracelets was the main event. Relaxed on blankets scattered on the lawn just in front of The {NewNew} Treasure Chest shop, the knotting began. It was reminiscent of summer camp from days past.

It was the most perfect day, in a perfect setting with a great group of crafters.

We knotted, pulled, twisted and turned our rope into one of a kind bracelets! The day was led by Peter of Yelp!, Meli Anna of MeliAnnaA, Jen of Mellowbeing and Corey of Sans Map. Thanks to everyone involved for helping to create a sucessful event!

Even the youngest of us all enjoyed the day...
