Live stitching event in NYC June 6

We got this note about an amazing upcoming event from our beloved Olisa Corcoran (Cocoa Eyes the Stitcher), who is a participant:

If you’re in the New York City area on June 6th, don’t miss out on an amazing poetry + embroidery event in Brooklyn. As part of her EmbroideryPoems #BrooklynTweets project, artist Iviva Olenick is hosting a poetry reading and musical performance. As poets read and musicians play, embroiderers will stitch snippets of lyrics and verse to create new, “found” poems. It should be a boundary-pushing, artistic night. Come join in!

Here are the details:
Thursday, June 6, 6-9pm
@61 Local, 61 Bergen Street near Smith Street
F/G to Bergen Street
