HandmAid Craft Day is a fundraising event in aid of the famine in the horn of Africa. Saturday 3rd September 2011 will be a day of craft classes, a market stall of handmade crafts, yarn, and “”knit working” a.k.a. stitch n bitch.
This collaborative effort is being organized and facilitated by two Dublin based knitters. They have been tweeting updates on Twitter as @handmAidcraft. They’ve recruited fabulous teachers for classes in the morning and afternoon of Saturday 3rd September. Check out the website for a class that interests you. €10 per class is a good deal to learn a new technique or craft, with all materials provided.
Shop at the marketplace of handmade craft items and re-saleable stash yarn donated by generous knitters/crocheters and handcrafters.
Also, big part of the day will be the gigantico of a stitch n bitch! There will be beanbags, a fireplace, tea, coffee and cake – all the essentials of a SnB : )
100% of the money we raise will go to the Oxfam appeal for the famine.
