last night...

...i went to Lo-fi DIY which is a brand new crafting club for renegade boys and tearaway girls who want to make things happen. It was held in the Manchester Craft and Design Centre but i ain't sure if it is going to be a weekly, fortnightly or a monthly meet up. Manchester Craft Mafia helped organise and set up the event. There are some more photos on flickr. I knew people were taking photos but i didn't know i would be in so many of them. i am sat in the bottom right hand corner of this photo. it was a great event and the two hours flew by! i met some great people and cant wait to go again.

I love this craft revival stuff I am seeing. When I was a kid (am about to show my age ...erk!), my Mum used to get a magazine called 'Golden Hands' which was all about making stuff by hand, from crotcheted shawls to rugs made from rags... and she made a lot of stuff back then - she was very good at the art and craft stuff, but preffered playing instruments...

Anyway, these things seemed to disappear quite a bit for a while... and the lack of crafts and so on has been quite sad, so it's lovely to see all these things being revived - but with a funky modern twist! yey!

Looks like an ace day out! Good for you hun!
