Hi all - we are about to start gathering everything to set up Knitcetera at the Estuary - so exciting! I have lists for cataloguing everything and people are making decisions over what to charge if they want to sell stuff.
We are collecting everything we need today and only starting to display the bigger items. I have been awake most of the night working out systems for cataloguing and of course displaying. Sian and I will be working all day tomorrow to get everything done - we intend to have it basically finished by lunchtime Wednesday - we are having a visit Wed afternoon from the Knitterati group from Kumeu, so want to have everything in place by the time they come. Thanks for all your offers of help - we will play it by ear, so talk to people when they arrive to drop their stuff off.
And, to everyone - both involved and interested, remember to come to the opening if you can - it's 6pm Thursday 09th June. Free - have a wine and some nibbles, talk to the artists and other like minded craftspeople. Our roving videographers might ask you a question or two - don't be shy! (Well, if you'd rather not, that's ok).
