The most exciting handmade shopping event on the Christchurch calendar is here!
From 11am till 3pm this Sunday 11 July at Our City O-Tautahi, A Craft Affair will feature the crème de la crème of the Christchurch craft scene – all in one place for one day only. Formerly known as Craft2.0 Christchurch, this year A Craft Affair has more than 40 stalls filled with homewares, jewellery, toys, art, accessories, clothing, paper goods and all manner of handmade loveliness.
So who are the crafty crème de la crème of Christchurch? Well I’m glad you asked – there’s an exciting mix of familiar faces and fabulous new sellers, including Cloud Nine Creative, Poetry & Cloth, The Busy Finch, Freedom Creative, Rethreads, Peewee Designs, Natural Star, Black Swan Designs, Rose In Thorns, Wishing Tree, SewItSeams, Relique Vintage Jewellery, Moki Designz and heaps more.
As well as the local folk, there’s crafty talent coming from Dunedin, Wellington and Auckland especially for A Craft Affair, including Little Minx, Zippitydoodah, Songbird Designs, Dear Colleen, Cat Taylor Design and The Sewphist.
As if all this crafty goodness isn’t enough to get you counting the hours till Sunday morning, consider the cupcakes!
Not only can you treat yourself to beautiful sweet indulgences from The Cupcake Parlour and the divine She Chocolat, but with every purchase you make at A Craft Affair, you stand a chance of winning sweet spot prizes from The Cupcake Parlour or the latest issue of the very lovely Peppermint magazine.
And of course, don’t forget to stop by the Felt display and say hi! Meet up with friends or bring your family along for a fabulous day out at Our City O-Tautahi on the corner of Worcester Boulevard and Oxford Terrace in central Christchurch – just a block from the Square. See you there!
