A new year and a new venture!

We're absolutely chuffed to have been awarded the opportunity to set up shop in the Wood Street Indoor Market in Walthamstow.
We won our space through a competition and out of 140 applicants we managed to bag ourselves a very nice little space. Actually it's a very nice large space!

Craft Guerrilla will open its shop in early February with the grand opening on the 11th of February which also coincides with the Valentine's fair. It's a short hop and a skip from Vestry House so pop by and see what the new space looks like! 

We'll be offering a workshop space which will hold numerous classes and drop in sessions including a weekly "Knit & Natter" afternoon with tea and cake. All weekly events will be listed on our events page soon so keep your peepers peeled!

As well as that you'll find sewing machine rental by the hour (we're still awaiting to hear from our sponsors but we hope to offer that real soon!) and a little boutique area with a selection of illustrations, zines, craft packs and designer maker items which will be available to purchase.

Lots of fab new designers and indie businesses are joining the already established market traders so it's a very cool and contemporary mix ranging from second hand bric a brack and clothing shops, a 78 gramophone records shop, illustrator and artist galleries, vintage vinyl, cafés, cake shops, a restaurant, a few dress makers, framers, florists, antiques and collectables, a revolving exhibition space and many more!

The Craft Guerrilla  shop is situated through the side entrance and we're in unit 37. Direct trains from London Liverpool Street and a short walk from Walthamstow Central Tube station (Victoria Line).
We're so excited about our plans and we hope to see you soon!

Many congratulations to you, it'll be wonderful to have a little space like this that you can fill with whatever you wish! I will certainly be paying a visit to the market once all the new units are open, I'm excited to see what will be in there!
