What you'll do

We begin our experience in the Garment District of NYC by visiting MOOD Fabrics, the number-one shopping destination for fashion fabric, and explore their voluminous array of designer fabrics and leather skins. From MOOD, we will walk to Times Square to take the NQR Subway to Union Square. There you have the option of picking up snacks from the Union Square Farmer’s Market before walking to the CraftJam studio. In the CraftJam workshop, we will show you everything you need to know to create your own wallet, including how to create a pattern, how to cut and assemble leather, how to insert studs, and how to hand-stamp your initials on to leather. You will walk away with a functional and totally personalized leather wallet, as well as a map of our city-sourced favorite craft suppliers!
