Coffee, Craft and Community

What a start to the year it has been! Many people who do regular markets see January as "my crafty time", a chance to make for themselves after the madness of Christmas. While you've been enjoying creating pretty little things, the Northside Makers Committee have met and nutted out a few things for the first quarter of the year.

Mrs Finki's Konstant Beckinsale Kaos

As most of you know, we have a market scheduled for 6th February, so we are busy going through applications and there are lots of them. If you have applied but not heard, do not fear, our online widgets have your details and we are hoping to have most of the applicants processed by the end of next week.

But we thought we would kick off the start of the year with another of our Coffee and Craft events at CERES. Good fair trade coffee and yummy gluten free cakes ... The weather man says that the weather is going to be fine, with a few light showers. We'll get a table under cover and enjoy the non-45 degree days! Bring along a hand-crafting project to work on as we gossip, sip and sup. If you don't have a project you're welcome to come along anyway!
