Welcome to CRAFTED x Riverhead!

We are putting a new spin on the classic ‘book club’ pairing active discussion with active hands

The guiding mission for the CRAFTED series is to put a new spin on the classic ‘book club’ by pairing active discussion with active hands. Each event will feature a different craft and different books with the overarching goal of gathering communities of readers together in innovative ways. Follow along for future event information because we’d love to see you there!

Our first event

Sip & Stitch

On Tuesday night, the brand-new CRAFTED x Riverhead ticketed event series debuted with its first craft night— Sip & Stitch! A room of 40+ booklovers embroidered custom patterns, talked books, and enjoyed delicious drinks and food courtesy of Le Grand Courtage and City Bakery. Sip & Stitch guests received a book of their choice, an embroidery starter kit, and one of three designed stitching patterns inspired by the iconic Riverhead Tote, CITY OF GIRLS by Elizabeth Gilbert, and RED AT THE BONE by Jacqueline Woodson. After mingling in the gorgeous lululemon SoHo community space, guests sat down for a quick tutorial on a few stitches and were encouraged to get creative with their designs. A major highlight of the night was hanging out with the beloved author Elizabeth Gilbert! After hearing about the event, Liz decided to stop by and join in on the fun.
