Book Lovers Unite with the {NewNew}

I admit. I'm a book-a-holic. You know you're a book-a-holic when you've memorized your 16-digit library card number but when asked what day you were born there is a good ten second pause. For all my fellow book lovers, there is an event going on right now that I know you're going to love. Blurb, an online program that gives you the tools you need to create your own beautiful photo books, has opened a pop-up store in New York City where you can stop by and take part in a series of workshops, speaker sessions, and events starting today until the end of the month. On Saturday, the {NewNew} is hosting a workshop from 4pm - 7pm with four different artists providing tutorials for handmade gifts for the book lover.

Jen of McFlashpants.etsy.com will turn everyday potatoes into book plate stamps to ensure non of your precious books go missing. Norder of NordeaSoaperie.esty.com will show you how to knit a decorative bookmark, keeping you on track during your subway reading. For the sewers out there, Cory of Sansmap.etsy.com will show you how to create a tote bookbag while Nguyen of KnitKnit.etsy.com will lead you in appliqueing book covers.

The pop-up shop is located at 60 Mercer Street between Broome and Grand in SoHo. We hope to see you on Saturday!
