Handmade 2013: plots and plans

Posted on May 28, 2013 by Tash | 2 comments

There's a whole heaps of activities you can join in on at the Knit Lounge at Handmade this Queen's Birthday weekend. We'll be bringing along loads of yarn, needles, and treats to play with. You'll find us along with half the shop's stock on the third floor of Te Papa - just follow the signs. And don't worry - the shop will also be open if you're in town for the weekend and feel like a leisurely squish and fondle.


The Ashford Joy spinning wheel will be there for you to try...


As will an Ashford SampleIt Loom...


And our wee instax camera - wear something you've knit and we'll add you to the Wall of Fame...


Also, the super popular giant knitting needles will be back! 


Add in the chance to make super speedy pom poms to create a swathe of pom pom garlands & it'll look like yarn exploded all over the third floor of Te Papa.

On Saturday we're having a Ravelry and Twitter meet-up from 1pm - 3pm with free Ravelry badges. Sunday sees us spinning away from 1pm - 3pm - bring along your wheel or spindle for some fun with fibre. If you fancy hearing yours truly speak for 6 minutes about craft stuff then head along to the Pecha Kucha sessions - an absolute bargain of a fun time for only $10. 

See you this weekend! It's going to be an absolute blast!

    At the very least I’ll try to head along on Saturday between 1 and 3pm!

    And congrats to the cover girl! (I’ve just spotted the insert in today’s DomPost.) :)
