Craft, Create, & Rock Out This Weekend

News from Sifu Design Studio & Fine Yarn on Clark:
Kelley Deal of The Breeders, and author of the book "Bags that Rock" will visit Sifu Design Studio & Fine Yarns (5044 N. Clark) starting July 22 for a book signing and meet & greet! At 7pm, she will host Sci-Fiber Friday - our free, weekly Sci-Fi movie screening.  July 23 and 24, Kelley will be back to teach a two part workshop on her awesome felted bag, "The Road Bag."  Plus, all day Saturday we will be hosting The Urban Folk Circuit, the only traveling year-round craft fair in Chicago, in our back parking lot. Saturday night Kelley and her new band R.Ring will be playing across the street at Transistor.

Sign up now on our website for this once in a lifetime chance to knit and felt a bag with Kelley Deal. The class is $80 for both days, materials not included, but readily available in kits at the store for $60.


  1. Sweet. Let's here it for Dayton, O!

    Great music scene back in the day: Breeders, GBV and to a much lesser extent, Agnus Moorehead Platter.

    Good to see Kelley's name again.

  2. Canal Street is awesome. Spent many weekends there listening to great bands.

    Check out a video I stumbled on from another Dayton native, David Poe, who is now in NYC. He was a good friend of mine growing up in "The Gem City" (aka "The Cosmic Center of the Universe") and this song is perfect for this Comic-Con video mashup.

    If it Gives You Joy

  3. I'm sad that I missed this. That's what I get for not checking Uptown Update in a week.
