Nightlife is zilch in Tysons at the moment due to the pandemic. After a brief hiatus, the “Tysons After Dark” series is back to highlight different online activities from local organizations and offerings from eateries that keep people busy once the sun goes down.
Crafty souls can now join kindred spirits on project adventures thanks to a weekly event hosted by TINT.
Every Wednesday from 7:30-8:30 p.m., the “maker space” in Falls Church will host Zoom meetings where people can gather to work on their own projects while hanging out with others, according to the event page.
Though the meetings used to be in-person, Carissa Englert, the shop’s owner, began hosting them remotely to abide by social distancing measures.
“They started when I opened the shop back in the Fall of 2019 and became a quick favorite with customers who liked to come “stitch ‘n’ b*tch” with their fellow crafters (knitters, stitchers, crocheters, weavers, etc.) each week,” Englert said. “When COVID started happening, I started getting requests to host them online instead of in person.”
This event is free and open to the public. Participants can find the link on the Facebook event page.
TINT opened in September and offers people a place to learn and practice textile and fiber arts, according to its website.
