Gearing Up For Craft 2.0 Tomorrow!

Tomorrow's the day that Coco Kids will have our first stall at Craft 2.0!

We've got a huge range of items - each of our blogs show what we've been up to lately.

Here's a wee sneak peek from them (click on the name at the top to go to the blog entry as well)


Hope to see you tomorrow, 10-3pm at TheNew Dowse in Lower Hutt!

11 Sleeps to go!

Well it's not long now! 11 sleeps according to the calendar till Craft 2.0! And this year it sounds like it's going to be even bigger and better than previous ones (if that's even possible!)

In fact, it's so big and there are going to be so many stalls that Craft 2.0 is spilling up into the next floor of The Dowse in Lower Hutt. That's where you'll find the Coco Kids stall - upstairs (according to the draft layout, if there are any changes we'll let you know).

Never fear if you plan to bring kids in a stroller, there is a lift up to the next floor, and we imagine that there'll be a bit more space up there for breathing, than the crush you sometimes feeling trying to walk through the Lounge section of Craft 2.0. We'd love to see you! Come and say hello!

Handmade Wooden Swifts - see the link below for more information

One thing that hasn't been mentioned on here (due to it not exactly being a custom knitting item) is that our stall should also have items FOR knitters, rather than solely knitted items. If you are on the lookout for a swift (to help wind your newly purchased Knitsch yarn), or sock blockers and stitch markers - then we can help you with that too! All wooden items (swifts and sock blockers) are made by Julia's hubby, and the stitch markers are carefully crafted by any of the Coco Kids team.

Sock blockers - small, medium, large and toddler sized

So mark your calendars - the 30th of October and we'll see you there!

October update

Well, it's been a few weeks since one of us last posted, so I thought I'd do a quick update. We're all very busy knitting for our upcoming Craft 2.0 stall here in Wellington at the New Dowse in Lower Hutt on the 30th of October. This will be a fabulous craft fair - and perfect timing for shopping for Christmas presents, or just acquiring some beautiful unique clothing items for the little people in your life. We will have a range of clothing ideal for the summer months, and also some items that can be worn all year round - all knit in either wool or cotton.

We've also recently been spotlighted on the Craft 2.0 website, here. So come along and check us out - we're really looking forward to it!

Here's just a small sample of what we will have to offer on the day:

some of Kate's work ...

some of Julia's work ...

and some of Ali's work ...

For all those who can't make it on the day, anything that doesn't sell at Craft 2.0 will be available for sale on here, so if you see anything you like (and remembering there are a lot of items that I haven't showcased on here) check back after the 30th of October and we will have a number of items under our For Sale tab.
