Saturday, May 12, there will be an exciting event in NYC: the first Moms & Makers Market in NYC, intended to fundraise for Moms Demand Action.
KnitSpinQuilt will be vending at the marketplace all day long (11am-6pm) with a full selection of three sizes of project bags, stitch markers, notions tins, and a couple of small surprises – stash savers that smell of lavender (packaged in plastic to keep the table safe for those with scent sensitivities), and even some wine glass charms, many of which work as stitch markers for larger needles!
There will be a brand new subway-themed bag available in several sizes at the market – and nowhere else until after the market is over and done!
The market includes a silent auction and a raffle to raise money for Moms Demand Action and will take place between 11am and 6pm at the Loft at W83 Ministry Center. KnitSpinQuilt has donated a hedgehog bag and set of stitch markers to the silent auction: a $35+ value that could be yours if you attend and bid!
The street address for the Loft at W83 Ministry Center is 150 West 83rd Street, New York, NY, between Columbus and Amsterdam, and the venue is accessible: there is also an outdoor terrace where people are welcome to sit and knit, and bring their own snacks.
Take the 1 train to 79th or 86th Street, or the B to 81st Street or 86th Street. Or take the M7/M11 southbound on Columbus Avenue and get off between 83rd/84th streets, or the M7/M11 northbound on Amsterdam and get off between 83rd/84th streets.
If you can’t make it there in person, there will be a major shop update on May 14! I’ll keep you posted!
