1. Last weekend I went to Wenlock Poetry Festival with the fab Julie and the Craftevan!

    Craftevan’s a travelling craft shop and workshop space.  We make crafts related to travel and nostalgia (and in this case a specially made range of poetry jewellery!) and go to festivals, car shows, steam rallies and vintage fairs!  This year we’ll be at Sedbergh Gala, Woore Vintage, Farm Feast in the Wirral, Llangollen 1960’s weekend, Country Fest in Kendal, Vintage on the Prom in Arnside, the IMM (International Mini Meet) in Kent, Beacons and hopefully lots more! (If you have any ideas please inbox me!)

    At events we also run workshops based on up-cycling, at the poetry festival we used old poetry books to make garlands, bunting, origami and flowers.  We run lots on making up-cycled jewellery, rag rugging and lots more!

    See more pictures on our facebook page here!

  2. Last week I went to a Woolly Bike workshop at Huddersfield’s Lawrence Batley Theatre.  To coincide with the Tour de France coming to Yorkshire, project director Cassandra Kilbride is going to towns across Yorkshire running knitting and crochet workshops and decorating bikes with Yorkshire imagery.

    The Huddersfield one was based on Huddersfield’s industrial heritage, with coal mine imagery, a chimney and two adorable canal barges!  This week she’s in Scarborough creating a seaside themed bike and after that it’s Haworth, Halifax, Hebden Bridge and Sheffield.  

    Here website’s here, so if you fancy getting involved sign up and yarn away!


  4. And the winner of the competition is teenagewaste!


    (actually, the first name I pulled out was a friend of mine weirdly, but I’d give her free things anyway if she wanted them, so felt a bit cheap!)

    And talking of being cheap, here’s a link to my Etsy!

    Welcome to Night Vale.

    I’m doing some research on Tumblr on stitching at the moment, soon I’m going to do a monthly column for Mr X Stitch and I’m really excited about it!  I want to focus on slightly rude, subversive, pop/cult culture, queer and feminist stitchery, so if you do those kind of things please let me know!
