I'm going to ........Lo-fi DIY!

A brand new crafting club for renegade boys and tearaway girls who want to make things happen.

There’s a special old-fashioned world of homemade fun to be had out there you know!

Lo-fi DIY is all about having fun, sharing ideas and making new friends. We like picnics in the summer and cosy handmade mitts in the winter.

Come and join us on Tuesday 5th August between 6-8pm at Manchester Craft & Design Centre in the Northern Quarter.

£3.50 will get you a comforting drink and snack from the cafe to help you settle down to it.

Please confirm your attendance to the email below. If you would like to know more about the night or need some ideas for a first crafting project please email us at

Lo-fi DIY is brought to you in association with manchester craft mafia
Thanks to the guys at Manchester Craft & Design Centre too.

Hello, The Craft Mafia is a worldwide organisation....

'The first Craft Mafia was founded in 2003 by nine crafty buisness women in Austin, TX. The group originally came together through a shared love for craft, DIY ethics and mutual respect. As the Craft Mafia developed it became a forum for networking, promotion and shared ideas. Since it's development in Austin, other Mafias have popped up accross the globe'

I don't think that London has established a group. But check out the Craft Mafia website and they give info about setting up!

Also, a good place to check in London is the shop 'LOOP' ( who organise similar events!
