Hey zinesters and comics artists! Come to our Zine Slumber Party (Zlumber Party, geddit? Gosh we’re clever.) This is the fourth year in a row we’re inviting you to come in and spend the night with us working on your zine, because we’ve had so much fun doing it in the past. The store closes at 10pm on Sat the 31st and then you’re invited to spend the night here (and yes, you can leave whenever you want). So bring yer jammies and a sleeping bag if you wanna take a break to catch a few zzzz, then leave in the morning with what you’ve been workin’ on. Interested in attending? Give us a holler so we have a head count, at either: info(at)quimbys(dot)com or call us at 773-342-0910. PLUS: Snacks! Coffee! Creative weirdos!
And oh yeah, we’ll feed you too.
Sat, Jan 31st 9:30pm – Sun Feb 1st, 8am
Quimby’s Zlumber Party Helpful Info Update!
In terms of what to bring, definitely whatever project you’re working on, whether it’s a zine, a comic, a book, a magazine, an artist book — independent publishing knows no bounds!
Be here at 9:30pm this saturday, the 31st (the store closes at 10pm). This is NOT a lock in; you can leave whenever you want. You can stay as late as 8am on sunday morning, which is the official end time for the event.
Wear comfy clothes! Don’t forget your sleeping gear! A sleeping bag if you wanna take a break to catch a few zzzz (or just be comfy), a pillow, footie pajamas, a blanket, slippers…whatever makes you comfy.
We’ll provide some snacks and coffee, but you may want to bring some snacks with you if you like. A good way to make new friends is bring food, is all we’re saying. If you have food sensitivities or allergies please bring whatever nourishment you need to bring to sustain you.
We’ll also provide some office supplies (papers, pens, scissors, staplers, that type of thing), chairs and tables.
One final note: Please don’t feel pressured to feel like you have to finish whatever you’re working on before you leave. If you feel excited to work on your project once you’ve been working on it here, that you’ve started your 2015 off jazzed that you got the creative ball rolling, then we’ve done our job (that’s once of the reasons we do this event in January). When you’re all done with your zine and you want to consign it here, we’re excited to sell it for you. More info about consignment here.
See you Saturday at 9:30pm!
