Merry Christmas!

That's it my craft loving kittens... only 5 days to go before Christmas! I hope you have a fabulous holiday and that olde Saint Nick brings you all you wish for!!!
I've had a blast this year...made lots of new friends, learned lots of new crafty skills, participated in all sorts of great events and will now be embarking on a few exciting adventures in the new year. There have also been a few changes regarding the collective and due to life it is now run solely by me. It's still a collective but it's now all down to one woman with a nack for spinning a dozen plates at once, a love for quality hand made designer goods and a belief that CRAFT is the answer to so many questions! Of course it goes without saying that many hands have helped Craft Guerrilla get to where it is today and that they are still lending us a knitted mitten when needed. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Also a huge thank you to everyone (shoppers, designer makers, crafters and all)  for your support and enthusiasm... I absolutely love the craft community and am so proud to be part of such a vibrant and growing scene.
I hope to come back in 2012 bright eyed, bushy tailed and raring to go on his fantastic voyage with you!!! Craft Guerrilla will be sailing back in February with a few new ventures and an all new monthly night in Archway, North London. That's right, "The Craftivista Social Club" will now happen at the Hideaway Bar every second Tuesday of each month. I'm very,very excited about this and can't wait to start! Stay well, stay crafty and remember... there's still time to make, bake and shop HAND MADE!!!

What a Christmas hellaballoo!

Thank you to everyone that made last Saturday's market such a winner! It was so busy...I think there wasn't one single quiet moment during the whole day...
We've had a record breaking 700 + visitors to the Vestry House Museum and they were all super lovely.
Having so many visitors to the gallery is wonderful as they need people to keep it going!!! Otherwise local council will take away funding because they say that there's not enough foot fall to keep it open.
We love our local galleries and we're blessed with not one but two plus we like to see our community thriving with great art and cultural events so it's imperative that these galleries remain open.
The William Morris Gallery is currently under refurb hence why we were at  Vestry House instead so If you've missed it smack yourself on the naughty, naughty are a few photos so you can see exactly what you've missed! And if you're really clever you can pop in and check out the Craft Guerrilla display case which has a few items for sale...
