How long is a piece of string?

The Wonders of Knitting & Crochet

In this moment of history, when knitting and crochet are at their peak, we want to put together a collaborative art exhibition which will showcase the past, the present, and the future of these crafts: how long is a piece of string.....?
We are looking for knitted and crochet items made by you, your mum, your dad, your auntie, your niece or your grandmother.
Anything from a knitted sock to a knitted decapitated head.
We want to narrow the story of the art of knitting and crochet  generations. Maybe grandma and grandaughter can knit something together? Or you can re-knit a garment that your mum made?
You can also start a NEW project for the exhibition. Something different? Something out of the box?
We are also looking for paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, videos, performances inspired by knitting and crochet.
Please send us pictures of your art work, your idea and input

Walthamstow Village Festival

The Arts and Craft Fair indoors at the Asian Centre: do check if they still have stalls available

This is open to all local artists/designers/makers but they are very keen to have as many E17 Designers as possible (because you all have such fantastic work!). It is being organised by a committee comprising of local traders, the Asian Centre and The WV residents Assciation. Traditionally this event attracted several thousand visitors (depends how long you have lived here if you remember it-I do!)


Saturday 2nd August

open from 1-5 inside the Asian Centre (set up from 10-12)

all tables £35 for the day.

(There will also be outdoor stalls for food and other traders, these will trade until at least 6pm or later, and are charged at £45 to traders, however the indoor ones will have the arts/crafts emphasis, much like an E17 Designers Market. Please make it clear if you are applying to be outdoors)


call Monwaara 07872 953194 for extra info or the Asian Centre (Abed) 0208 223 0707

Message from Michelle

My name is Michelle Lawrence-Sinko. I?m a member of the local Wood Street First and Safer Neighbourhood committees. We are having a Wood Street Plaza family fun day on Saturday the 30th August 2014 between 12- 4pm.

We will be having a number of events as well as funfair rides and bouncy castles. We are hoping to have a number of stalls for traders / crafts people to come and sell their items.

To have a stall is free, but we would require a ?30.00 deposit which would be refunded on the day.

Can you please let me know if you would be interested and I will forward you on a stall holders application form.

Many thanks,

Kickstarter Campaign for new label "atiq"

Posted by E17 Designers

Anna from Phannatiq: "After 4 years of running my clothing business phannatiq I have decided to make my clothes more accessible to everyone. The difference being that while most companies produce in China, I will be producing in an ethical factory in the EU.

In order to test the water I am going to be producing 18 of my key pieces, however as their minimums are higher than I'm used to I am using kickstarter as a way to gain enough private orders to raise funds for the production.

If you're not aware of the kickstarter thing it's a way to become involved and support companies with projects. The idea is to pledge for rewards, in this case the clothes themselves so it's more like a pre-sale. We are not asking for donations just that you buy a garment and don't mind waiting until December 1st to receive it. Even if it's not something for you, it could be someone's Christmas present and the smallest pledge is still a massive help!

The twist is that if I don't reach my target by July 16th I don't get anything at all regardless of how many people have pledged. So even if you can't pledge or don't want anything it would be amazing if you'd share it around. This can be via email/Facebook/twitter/texting anything at all is greatly appreciated

Thank you in advance for your consideration"
