We're really excited to be bringing a whole lot of community and crafty warmth to the city centre this winter. We are kicking off the month long Winter Warm Up pop up on World Wide Knit In Public Day with a YARN BOMBING day, which is essentially snuggly colourful graffiti through knitting and stitching...
YARN BOMBING DAY:
Come join us Saturday 13th 10-4pm I have ordered A TONNnn of cookies from neighbouring Moustache Milk & Cookie Bar and will have all the kettles whirring making you tea. Now, did I mention FREE YARN? Yes you can de-stash all you want, but we want to make this easy for you so we're supplying all the acrylic (best for the outdoors) yarn so all you need to bring is your needles (if you have some already) and a mug for your tea.
You're sew welcome to just rock on up as you please, but RSVP's are great over here, and share with your friends, nanas and knitty neighbours
Following this day we have a programme of free evening workshops 6-8pm for the 4 thursdays of the pop up...
Thursday 18th June: Mending with Sarah (BYO rips and together we can handstitch them better)
Thursday 25th June: Darning with Sarah (BYO holey socks and jerseys and learn the art of darning)
Thursday 2nd July: Knitting with Frankie (BYO knitting project, & beginners welcome of course)
Thursday 9th July: Knitting with Frankie (BYO knitting project, & beginners welcome of course)
Every lunchtime 12-2pm monday - friday we will line up a rainbow of comfy cushions and thermoses of tea, can someone teach me how to shuffle cards? and i'll teach you a stitch or two... If you work in the city or are passing through, come and join us for a lunch break amongst the rainbows.
We are grateful for the support and ideas of Auckland Council - BIG thanks to them for helping make our city more liveable and loveable.
So here's a wee square for you to screenshot and share about. Remember to #whatwarmsmywinter
