SPOKEN WORD: Dec. 15th, Show and Tell

Show and Tell

City Reliquary (370 Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn)
Doors and sign-ups at 7pm, showing/telling commences at 8pm

Open Mic Show-and-Tell, hosted by Paul Lukas, returns to the City Reliquary on December 15th.

Open Mic Show-and-Tell is exactly what it sounds like: Anyone can bring an object of personal significance and talk about it for up to three minutes. No theme, no agenda — interesting stuff and the stories behind them are their own reward.

If you have a particularly odd object to share, that’s fine. But Show-and-Tell isn’t really about the objects — it’s about the stories. Look in your pocket or purse — there’s probably good show-and-tell fodder there, whether you realize it or not.

You can either (a) bring an object and be prepared to talk about it, or (b) just be part of the audience (because you can’t have show-and-tell unless there are people on hand to be shown and told). Either way, it’s a good time.

The DIY trend is growing ever more popular as people turn to their sewing machines rather than the mall for new threads. At the head of the curve is, the largest online community of fashion enthusiasts, sewers, and crafters, with more than 600,000 members. Now co-founder Nora Abousteit and creative director and Project Runway alum Alison Kelly share everything you need to know for a fashion-forward wardrobe in their new book, The BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook. Abousteit and Kelly will discuss how the concept came about and share fun stories as well as the inspiration behind the designs, patterns, and concepts presented in the book.
