Bank Holiday Stitch Up

We've got your bank holiday stitched up like a good 'un, and you'd expect nothing less from your Craft Guerrilla gals, right?

Here's your itinery...

Friday: Start the weekend right with a party! Although not directly craft related as some of you know as well as being Lisa Margreet, Craft Guerrilla's knitting queen, I'm also Trixie Minx a rollergirl with the London Rockin' Rollers. Rollergirls play hard on and off the roller derby track and tonight we're having a party - and you're all invited! Please come along to our fundraiser at The Gaff on Holloway Road from 8PM. There will be bands, booze and broads - and I predict a particularly riotous evening as there are lots of roller girl birthdays to be celebrated (including mine)! Click on the flyer below for the full details.

Saturday: If you've been out partying with the London Rockin Rollers then you're going to need a little bit of a lie-in, but not too late as you don't want to miss the first edition of that glorious British Summer tradition - the East London Craft Guerrilla summer markets. There will be beautiful goods for sale which have been lovingly hand crafted by an excellent selection of local designers and artists. And there will also be cake and cocktails!

Sunday: Come and craft with us at the British Postal Museum Archive on Sunday! They are throwing open their doors for an open weekend where you can explore the array of items they have on display. There are examples of bicycles, letter boxes, motor bikes, telephone boxes, TV license detector vans and much, much more! The Craft Guerrilla have been working away on creating some kits to celebrate the collection and we think you'll like what we've come up with...

Monday: This day is devoted to a day of reflection, for thinking back on the crafty fun you've had this weekend - and for feeling happy about the handmade things you bought at the market, the items you made at the Postal Museum and all your new rollergirl friends.

Enjoy - and see you there!

Lisa Margreet
