Craft and Design

Yesterday I ventured out into the rain to the Craft and Design centre in the Northern Quarter. I hadn't been there in a while and it was a very refreshing change to the hustle and bustle of most of the city centre. They have some great stalls selling art, jewellery, textiles and more. I got some great ideas for Christmas presents and also for some self directed projects.
The most interesting part of my trip was the current 'Yarn Forward' project, whereby people send in small knitted sections to add to the craft centre 2nd floor banister, to create a huge, flowing tapestry like piece of art!
I forgot to take my camera, however below is a link to the Yarn Forward blog, plus a link to the Craft and Design Centre site.
