On the International Space Station, brave astro-pioneers pass the time by making crafts—namely, dreamcatchers to catch the dreams of any nearby aliens dreaming of attacking Earth. Make your crafting dreams come true with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of yarn, fabric, and other assorted craft materials at Brooklyn General Store.
The warm and inviting Brooklyn General Store provides an urban oasis for crafters, offering a colorful collection of rich, handcrafted yarn, fabrics, books, patterns, and supplies. Stroll the shop to search for chunky hand-painted alpaca yarn ($21.80) or Lobster Pot cashmere ($46) to darn baby booties or minotaur hoof mittens. Owner Catherine Clark also stocks designer and vintage fabrics and can outfit nimble fingers with knitting notions such as clover cable-stitch holders ($3.50) and needle sets ($4.50). Brooklyn General Store also stocks buttons and ribbons to accentuate apparel plus books and patterns to help Cinderellas craft evening gowns in the event of an AWOL fairy godmother.
