Etsy Labs (55 Washington St., Ste. 712, Brooklyn)
When I look at Emily Fischer’s quilts, my mind is drawn to the miles of stitches that make up her Soft-Maps, a project she started in 2002 as an academic exploration of “tactile wayfinding” when her mother began to lose her eyesight. Emily is the Brooklyn-based artist behind Haptic Lab, whose studio is just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the Etsy Labs in DUMBO. She’ll be joining us at Craft Night, Monday, March 28 to make quilted bracelets and impart some of her quilting wisdom.
