Hooray! Cross & Woods is having its 1-year anniversary and that’s cause for celebration! We invite you to join us on our ‘Birthday Craft Party’ on Saturday 5th November. There will be, so much to do! There will be lots of demos, an elaborate ‘yarn tasting’, a spinning event and a big fat sale!
Our program is full with fun activities for you to take part in. It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced crafter or an enthusiastic beginner, please come by and see us!
Bring your spinning wheel or spindle along as Megan, our spinning queen, will treat you to a lovely afternoon full with lush fibres and tricky spin competitions. If you have never spun before, Megan will be happy to show you how it works!
Our very own sewing expert, Bastian, will be working on a Merchant & Mills pattern. Before you know it a piece of fabric is turned into a beautiful dress! He’s here to answer all your questions and if you want to try out sewing he’ll be on hand to help you out.
Knitting & Crochet
During the day we will be introducing a new yarn: the beautiful Tumi yarn from the Norwegian company Rauma. We’re also organising a ‘yarn tasting’. We’ll have sample balls in a variety of colours, fibres and thickness with different brands of knitting needles, crochet hooks and patterns ready to test all the new materials. And our yarn tasting doesn’t cover only 1 brand, but 5! We have the following brands lined up for you: Rauma, Fonty, Nurturing Fibres, Vinnis Colours and the Fibre Company. Keep an eye on facebook for more detailed info about these companies!
Cross & Woods is proud to launch a line of amazing glass buttons made by glass artist Marcin Karwiński. He captures different materials like pieces of fabric, copper and even knitwear between layers of glass. This afternoon he will show you how he transforms something as simple as a button into a tiny piece of art.
Sale & Raffle
It’s our birthday so we’d like to treat you to a super sale, with discounts up to 40% on yarn and fabrics. And for all customers we have a great give away, with every purchase you can win a mystery goody bag!
And of course there’s tea and cake to celebrate! So hopefully you’ll come and join us for the festivities!
When: Saturday 5 November 2016 from 12.00-17.00
