Stitch 'n' Bitch- 1st ever Monthly Meet Up

So we thought that it was about time that we arranged an actual regular meet up, 
so here it is!

Wellington Craftivism Collective will now be meeting on the 1st Monday of every month from 5-8pm (with a view for other meet-ups too).

Bring Vegan nibbles to share, what ever you are working on, some crafty bits and bobs and your inspiration. We have heaps of fabric and wool and things to share. If you you think that you can't sew or knit or whatever- you can, you just haven't learnt yet! Come and make a patch for the Giant 'Occupy' Blanket or get into making some yarn bombing masterpieces!

Everyone very welcome ♥

Blanket Man Limited Edition Prints

We are very pleased to have had 10 original and signed limited edition stencil prints by Carl "NAIS" Nansett, featuring the late Ben Hana (aka Blanket Man)

Blanket Man led quite and extraordinary life and  will be missed by many Wellingtonians and New Zealanders alike following his recent death.

The prints are a mere $50 each and all proceeds will go towards the Wellington Craftivism Collectives new Streets Outreach project... more info on this one coming soon.

Please leave your email address below if you wish to purchase one of the prints.
