Amigurumei Singapore Meet & Greet and amigurumi workshop

6 Mar

I’ll be going to Singapore for my maiden amigurumi meet & greet workshop next week. Yay!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Wendy of When I Create and Craft Assembly for agreeing to host me for the event. I’ve never met Wendy but I think it was about two years ago when she first dropped me a mail to invite me over to tour her When I Create zakka store.

Needless to say, I’m super excited to meet her for the very first time, and also to meet other fellow crafters in the field!

Here are the details of my Singapore visit:

AMIGURUMEI MEET & GREET

Date: March 14

Time: 2pm to 4pm

Venue: Craft Assembly, 49 Haji Lane, Singapore.

What to expect: I’d love to meet you! Bring along your fibre-stuffed friends and we can take we-fies, amigurumi groufies, anything! And if you have a copy of Hello Kitty Crochet with you, bring it along too and I’ll promise to pen down my best wishes for you. If my dolls agree, they will be up on display in-store. It’ll be their first trip to Singapore, so I hope everyone will be nice and accommodating!

Date: March 14

Time: 5pm to 7pm

Venue: Craft Assembly, 49 Haji Lane, Singapore.

What to expect: If you have always wanted to make cute little amigurumi by hook and yarn, but have always had trouble understanding how to start, this workshop would be perfect for you. And no pressure! Even if you can’t finish making the doll by the end of the class, you can always finish up at home — I promise to make a video to further supplement your home learning (but do give me some time, ok?). The idea is to have fun, and find your calling, if crochet is indeed your calling 🙂 Oh and we’ll be making a mini Piyoko. The pattern should get you off to a good start to make other cute critters 🙂

AMIGURUMEI BEGINNERS WORKSHOP #2

Date: March 15

Time: 10am to 12pm

Venue: Craft Assembly, 49 Haji Lane, Singapore.

What to expect: The same as above, but on a more relaxing Sunday morning 🙂

AMIGURUMEI INTERMEDIATE WORKSHOP 

Date: March 15

Time: 3pm to 5pm

Venue: Craft Assembly, 49 Haji Lane, Singapore.

What to expect: If you’ve already been making amigurumi on your own, but would love to chat a bit about how to make your dolls cuter, slimmer, longer or prettier, then this would be THE workshop for you. We’ll be attempting to make Keiko-chan, who is currently ranked as the world’s cutest (and tiniest) Hello Kitty fan. I suppose two hours would not be enough for everyone to finish the doll but no worries! What’s most important is that we all have a great time crafting together and enjoying everyone’s company. If you have any tips and tricks you would like to share, please feel free to do so! Bring along your favourite handmade amigurumi and we can take some fun pictures together!

So counting down, it’s about 7 days till I head over to Singapore!

Please e-mail craftassembly@hotmail.com for more information on the workshops. Fees is SGD$65 per person. We are keeping the classes a small and comfortable size of 10 crafters, so do sign on quick 🙂

I hope to share more photos when I’m back! Wish me luck!
