Wool and Craft Supplies Market No.2
Sep 7 @ 9:30 am – 4:00 pm

RESCUE AND REUSE

This market is for Nott’s community of crafters, including people who knit, crochet, embroider, sew, and needlepoint. You may also find supplies for paper crafts, jewellery making and more.

FOR BUYERS: It’s an opportunity to get ready for the crafting season with incredible bargains on the supplies you want and need. You can feel good about reusing rather than buying new. There will be pre-purchased and gently used items available and who knows what you’ll find.

FOR SELLERS: This market will give you a chance to refocus, clean up shop and give others the opportunity to buy wool, yarn and supplies that you no longer have a place for. Please e-mail dee@minoroak.com or message MinorOak Nottingham Coworking if you’d like to be a seller.

FOR EVERYONE: This is going to be more than just a market. It will be a community event. We’ll have tables set up on Avenue A for sitting and visiting if the weather is nice, and free coffee, tea and snacks. The meeting room will be converted into a lounge.

MinorOak’s ground floor is wheelchair accessible and has a wheelchair accessible toilet.
