July Kraftbomb - Applications open!

Just a reminder in case you missed the post!

July Kraftbomb applications are now open!

Groove Guide thinks we are the sh#t

Many thanks to the Groove Guide for featuring Kraftbomb!

They picked us as number 2 on their "Shit List" - the "Top 10 Things To Do" for the week 27 May - 2 June.


More press!! Viva again!

We've been so busy with our full time jobs/study, crafting and of course running our baby Kraftbomb, that we haven't been too good at updating our press!

We're stoked that The NZ Herald's Viva on 22/04/09 ran a whole feature on craft! "The Art of Craft" by Zoe Walker was a great showcase of the craft revolution going on in NZ and abroad. The best bit is the lovely ladies Esther and Shelley from our sponsors Toggle were interviewed and there were a few products from both Kraftbomb and Toggle regulars featured in the spread!

Keep it Krafty!!

July Kraftbomb - Applications now open!

We are pleased to announce that applications are now open for the July 2009 Kraftbomb!

for the July application form!

Applications will close Sunday 5th July 2009 and we will be in touch a couple of days after this date. Please don't worry if you haven't heard from us straight away. It sometimes takes us a few days to go through applications and we always email both successful and unsuccessful applicants.

To be fair to those that do apply during this time, we cannot accept any applications after this date and hope you all understand.

We receive so many applications for Kraftbomb and do our best to give everyone a chance to sell and to fit as many people in as possible. Please, please do not be offended or take it personally if you don't get a spot. We simply cannot fit everyone in each time and we find it extremely hard to go through the applications and pick out the successful applicants. We sometimes stand people down for a month to let a new vendor have a spot and we try to be as fair as possible.

We do read through every application, visit each blog and view your photos. If you don't have a blog or Flickr, then please email us through your photos. We've had a few people apply with amazing sounding projects who never sent through photos and didn't get a spot.

We also do our best to pick vendors who are making products that fit into Kraftbomb's quirky style of crafts and will compliment existing vendors products. If you're not sure if your crafts would fit, come along to a Kraftbomb and have a look around and get a feel for the atmosphere. You can pop by and say hello and introduce yourself to Karla (Geek Freeks) or City (NZ Cupcake Queen) too!

We look forward to all your applications and seeing everyone at the next Kraftbomb.

Keep it krafty!

bigger better posters!

Since the April Kraftbomb we have been proud to have a bigger, better and brighter street presence each month with our fantastic LARGE Kraftbomb posters. We've come a long way from the A3 posters we started out with nearly a year ago, they seem so small now!

The Profile Plus poster boys have been hard at work putting our new big posters up each month and we think they not only look great, they are definitely helping us get a whole new lot of visitors to Kraftbomb who perhaps hadn't heard of us before!

So keep an eye out for the posters around town. The June posters will be up very soon!
