Getting Cosy

Christine from Creative Napier gives our tree some adoptive love.
I have been blown away with the overwhelming response I have had to Knit August Nights, I am now about 80% subscribed for the retreat & three workshops are getting close to being sold out. So if you haven't registered yet, get your skates on & register here.

It's not a Sea Anenome, but a Tree Anenome!

To make August a truly yarn occasion I have been working with Creative Napier & Napier Inner City Marketing on a special yarn based art initiative. Napiers main CBD shopping street, Emerson, has 99 mature palm trees lining the length of the street. We are hoping to encourage individuals & groups to adopt these trees & knit, crochet or felt these lovely trees a 'Tree Cosy' to help keep them warm for the final two weeks of August.  Christine from Creative Napier & myself adopted the first tree making a special 'Tree Anenome' & I will also be adopting another tree & have created an Autumn inspired cosy which is on display at Skeinz.

Christine from Creative Napier & Meg from Napier Inner City Marketing dress our tree. 
That means if you are travelling to KAN:2, you can adopt a tree & then be able to see your adoptive tree child & cosy during the course of the installation. If you wish to adopt a tree drop me an email at Skeinz or call into the shop, we have adoption papers & a series of discount vouchers for yarn purchases.  The trees of Emerson need you!
