Who knew felt faux taxidermy was so popular?

The second Drinking with Scissors proved to be very popular with fans of both crafts and beer, selling out in the first 15 minutes! So many enthusiastic makers showed up, the Social House ran out of chairs and people sat on the stage floor to get their craft on.

November’s projects were inspired by a cozy winter cabin in the woods, the quintessential Yukon experience. Participants chose from kits to make mini bear rug coasters or little wall-mounted felt deer and foxes.

The next Christmas edition of Drinking with Scissors is happening December 13th from 8pm to 11pm at the Social House (102 Wood Street). Be sure to show up early while kits and seats last!  Unfortunately the December Drinking with Scissors has been cancelled, but we have lots of fun things planned for January and February, so keep your eye on our events calendar.

Monster Love! A Valentine’s Day Craft Party

The wonderful Baked staff served up “Shot to the Heart” cocktails, a yummy mix of alcohol, cranberry juice and apple cider, as well as a fun four-person shot ski.

Some lucky winners went home with door prizes that included all sorts of YuKonstruct goodies and even a free membership to the makerspace!
