If you're free this Sunday I implore you to make your way to the Ukrainian Cultural Center (4315 Melrose Avenue, between Vermont and Heliotrope) for Felt Club: XL Summer. The mega DIY wares event put together by the most wonderful Jenny Ryan, will showcase the works of 70+ crafters. There's even more fun to be had while perusing the selection of handmade wares when there are tasty goodies from Auntie Em's Kitchen to be had, music spun by DJs Dirty Robot and Lance Rock to be enjoyed, and best yet, the whole event will be MC'ed by Charles Phoenix! The first 250 visitors will be treated to swag bags full of books, magazines, craft patterns, coupons, buttons, li'l gifts and samples from their sponsors and vendors. Sunday, July 15, from 11am-7pm. For more information, visit the Felt Club website.
Oh, and one extra tip: be sure to check around the corner and enjoy the best ice cream shop in all of Los Angeles afterward. Owner Tai Kim agreed to open up shop just for the event (Scoops is normally closed on Sundays).
