Jess and Jo, the founders of the Fruit Bowl Craft Jam, are holding the mother of all Stitch and Bitch sessions on Tuesday 13 September.
It’s at Opera Kitchen in Hastings, the venue of the hugely successful Craft Jam for Christchurch in March. The very cool doco Handmade Nation will screen at around 6.30 pm and there’ll be knitting, crocheting, felting, stitching and yarning till about 9.30pm.
The good peeps at Opera Kitchen will keep everyone fed and watered. You’ll need a little pocket money for some kai and there’ll be a few crafty goodies to add to the collection. There could even be a special guest appearance by the Haumoana Mens’ Knitting Circle. Bring your sticks, your hooks and any curly conundrums about the Way of the Wool and Jess and Jo will find a spinner or hooker to help you out.
One shiny $2 coin will get you through the door. Take your mum, your nan, your man, your besties, your craft posse, your natty-knitters, your peggy squares – the more the merrier.
