Hi there, I work at the Powerhouse Museum and my name is Deborah Vaughan. On the 30th April and 1st May we are organising a craft event called 'Craft Punk: In the Loop'. This is the launch of a series of quarterly craft weekends which will be held throughout 2011. Our first in the series will focus on textiles: crochet, threading, knitting, embroidery, sewing, beading, lace making but with a DIY punk and twisted flavor: heavily influenced by the blogosphere and mixed with skill from crafters, guilds and masters crafters. For more info you can go to and the Powerhouse webpage for the event info and bookings at Yoy can also call me on 92170104 for more info. Happy Crafting and if you do come to the event I will be there so please come up and say hello!
