Any event with some good word play in its title always catches our eye. So when we saw the flier for the Mom’s Day Crafternoon, we took notice. Then we realized it’s being hosted by Mother Made—the amazing organization that helps empower low-income women through the process of created and selling handmade goods. You’ve probably seen its T-shirts, tote bags, aprons, and more around town—and the enthusiastic and friendly women who are more than happy to talk to you about them. Well, your chance to get in on the action is tomorrow (Saturday, May 4th) when Mother Made will host its first public gathering—Mom’s Day Crafternoon.
The Crafternoon will take place from 1-4pm at D Center (16 W. North Avenue in the Station North Arts District). It will feature affordable, family-friendly art projects (help the kids make you something they can surprise you with later for Mother’s Day!), free refreshments, and music. Mother Made’s handmade products will be for sale, including the signature produce bags and totes, as well a new line of quilts and baby gear. There will also be a raffle to help Mother Made raise money to offer free sewing workshops at Liberty Rec and Tech Center in Northwest Baltimore. Prizes include gift certificates to local favorites such as Woodberry Kitchen, Tapas Teatro, and the Charles Movie Theater. So if your little one wins one of those in the raffle, that could make a pretty nice Mother’s Day gift too, couldn’t it?
Mom’s Day Crafternoon will take place Saturday, May 4th from 1-4pm at D Center, 16 W. North Ave. in Baltimore. For more information about Mother Made, visit www.mothermade.org.
