Make November a month to craft!

We love autumn,not just because the leaves turn a beautiful shade of GOLD but because it gets us in the mood to knit. No more sweaty hands just lovely,lush yarn turning in to a host of usable and handy comforting items.Summer is such a put off for knitters. Wool and blazing heat do not mix!
And also with the run up to Xmas we're readying ourselves to bring to the good people of London great crafting ideas for all you lovelies to make and gift to your loved ones!And for those extra lazy can buy a d.i.y. craft pack and give it to a crafty friend. Hmmm lazy or just smart? Because it's even less for you to do and because the best gift you can give is creativity we think you'll be on to a winner! They'll love you forever!!!

Next month we'll be hosting 3 d.i.y. events:
"Monthly D.I.Y. Craft Night"
Thursday 12th November at "Ye Old Rose and Crown" pub Hoe St. Walthamstow E17 8pm - 11pm Free entry!

It's official we're back in E17! Join us a Ye Old Rose and Crown ( Hoe St.) for a night of mid week crafting. It's a short hop and a skip from the tube station. We're back with the usual crafty goodness: D.I.Y. craft packs,in house tutors and guest tutors plus a few extras like one off workshops.

This month we'll be showing you how to up-cycle tee shirt yarn. It's a great way to recycle your unwanted tees and make something new...and just in time for Chrimbo too! Bring a few cotton jersey tees (fine weave works best) and we'll show you just how to harvest your very own yarn! After that you can either crochet or knit yourself a snazzy little something!

Free entry!Small charge per craft pack though you are welcome to bring your own projects and sit with us in this creative get together.
