The Craft-Off!

So, it's been a little while since the Craft Off but I finally managed to load the pics up onto the computer and now I will pop a few up here. It was a really fun/strange evening. I mean, first off it sold out in about an hour, which was random and completely unexpected! Then people were SO into the craft, which was really nice, but made you realise that what we do with Jumpers for Goalposts is more like playtime than craft! The performances were really good, with Poppy Seed starting, We Show Up On Radar next, the Tom Tomas Club performing as Craftwork and ending with the Red Shoe Diaries who played a cracking set surrounded by wool.

Donna and the girls from Spinsters Emporium (check it out online!) had done an amazing job decorating the place, as I hope you'll be able to tell from some of the photos.

Here's some pics:

As a judge of the competition may I add a final note... the canonbert was incredible. It worked with the cheese theme, looked great and had party poppers which went off like the flash! Great work!

See you soon,
