ready for round 2?

No sooner have we all started recovering from the very first Kraftbomb, its time to prepare for the next one.

The second Kraftbomb will be held on Sunday 28th September, at the Grey Lynn Community Centre from 1-4pm.

This event will still be in the Garden room, but please note that from October onwards, Kraftbomb's new home will be in the much larger main hall at the Grey Lynn Community Centre. We've outgrown our little room already but unfortuntely we can't have the larger room for another month. So please bare with us, we know the smaller venue isn't ideal but it is only for one more Kraftbomb.

We are planning a super fantastic Kraftbomb for October to celebrate our new venue!

Esther from Toggle tipped me off the other day that the latest issue of Viva (Wed 3 Sept) had a Q&A with Marc Moore who is the co-founder of Stolen Girlfriends Club.

A huge thank you to Marc for mentioning Kraftbomb amongst his favourite places to shop! I think you've got some cupcakes heading your way dude.

Kraftbomb rocked!

The very first Kraftbomb has been and gone, phew! What a busy day!

Can we just say a HUGE thank you to everyone who made it out on Sunday to support the show and see what amazing things all our vendors were selling! We had a fantastic day, the sun was out, there were families hanging out in the playground enjoying the sunshine and the wee Garden Room at the Grey Lynn Community Centre was packed!

Although it was a tight squeeze in the room at times, we just want everyone to know that we will be moving to a larger space to accommodate all our visitors as well as more vendors. The next Kraftbomb in September will still be in the Garden Room, but from October onwards, we move into the huge hall next door!

Thanks also to the lovely Anna Kaye who provided the beautiful background music and Sarah Marlow who joined her during the day to perform.

Congratulations to our raffle winner Sofie. She won a gift basket FULL of crafty goodies donated by our vendors. Proceeds from the raffle are going towards paying for extra advertising for the next Kraftbomb, so thank you to everyone who purchased a ticket! Here is Esther from Toggle making the big prize draw!
