Canberra 2012 – Order of Events

Friday Crafty Shopping Trip - Friday 8th June, 2012

Departing the Crowne Plaza Canberra at 1:00pm sharp, we’re off to Addicted to FabricBison and the Shop Handmade. At Shop Handmade, we get some time to slow down, look through the store, shop, have a glass of nice cold sparkling wine and enjoy some delicious macarons. After a long day of travelling for many of you, it’s the perfect chance to relax. {Bus trip is full}.

Friday evening at your leisure.

Run/Walk – Saturday 9th June, 2012

Meet at the Captain Cook Memorial Globe at 7am for a 5km walk or a run (little bit longer). Let me know if you would like further details!

Starting at 1pm at the Crowne Plaza Canberra, in the lovely Glebe room overlooking Glebe Park, is the main event, the Saturday Crafting Session.

Please arrive promptly – lunch will be served right at 1pm! If you arrive late from the market, I am not responsible for you going hungry!

Other than that little matter, it’s a relaxed day :-), with lots of opportunities to meet other craft bloggers, take part in some workshops, shop at the pop-up market stalls, do the infamous ‘Sample Swap’ dance, win a prize from the fabulous pool of prizes donated by our sponsors and, if you have time, do some of your own crafting!

You’ll receive a goody bag, with samples from our sponsors, and a name tag and lanyard.

Workshops will take place as follows:

  • 2:30pm Beginner Crochet Class (all booked out)
  • 3:30pm Sock Owl Workshop (book here if you’d like to participate)
  • 5:00pm Granny Square Crochet Class (one spot left)

  • 1:30pm  - Suzy Hausfrau – yarn
  • 2:00pm – Craft Schmaft – craft kits and patterns
  • 2:30pm – Craft Junk – crochet and knitting needles
  • 3:00pm – Chaletgirl – fabric de-stash
  • 3:30pm – Possum Blossom – die cut papers and fabric for paper piecing
  • 4:00pm – Polly Pratt – fabric and clothes
  • 4:30pm – Silly Gilly – fabric
  • 5:00pm – Clare’s Craftroom – patterns
  • 5:30pm – The Red Thread – a huge range of crafty greatness
  • 9:30pm – Posie Patchwork – fabric

Lunch, afternoon tea and all day tea and coffee is supplied at the hotel, and this year, dinner is also included in your ticket price. We’ll be breaking for dinner at 6:30pm and walking a short distance (for some fresh/cool/cold/freezing air) to the Tongue and Groove for a delicious meal (for more details, see here). Drinks are at your own cost, and can be purchased at the bar as needed.

After dinner, we have a Sew It Together first; late night sewing! We have the room at the Crowne Plaza until 11:00pm, so come back to the hotel for some more relaxed, late night, warm & cosy sewing time.

Midnight activities at your leisure :-)
