TL;DR [too long didn't read]: Hand sewn creatures themed (but not required) drop-in Zoom crafting session happening in the last Saturday of the month 

---

This month our theme is hand sewn creatures. We’re getting a selection of hand sewing kits for creatures ranging from cactuses to house hippos. To request a kit write us on Facebook, or Instagram, or send us an email. Kit pick up is in Quadra Village, and some limited delivery may be available upon request. We’re not able to reserve specific kits but you can select your preference from the bin when you pick up. You are welcome, as always to join and participate with your own craft as well. 

We will have live captions on. If there's anything we can do to make this event more accessible for you, don't hesitate to reach out. You can message us or email queercrafternoon@gmail.com

Here are some FAQs and our community agreement too for more info:

Queer Crafternoon is funded by a CRD Equity Grant. Thank you to the CRD Arts Commission for their generous support.

These events will be taking place on the traditional and unceded territories of the Lkwungen speaking peoples of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations and the W̱SÁNEĆ peoples. We would like to acknowledge the rich and vibrant artistic practices of the Coast Salish Nations as well as those across Turtle Island that, along with their people, have faced persecution and attempted destruction by forces of colonization both past and present. Great honour and respect to the generations that have worked to keep these traditions alive, and to all those contributing to their revitalization today. Háy̓sxʷ q̓ə siám

Who we are: Queer Crafternoon is a free drop-in art space for queer, trans, and two-spirit folks of all ages along with their friends and family to craft, create, and connect! We are under the umbrella of Monoceros Education Society, and organized by a group of queer young adult volunteers living on unceded Lkwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ territory. Currently the 4 active facilitators are Ardeo, Celeste, River, and Cedar.
