Foxes charity auction

Foxes is running an auction to raise money for the Red Cross relief effort in Christchurch on their facebook page, in case you haven't heard. There are great items from lots of Extra Curricular favourites which are likely already on your wishlist. It's heartening to see people coming together to support our friends down south. The young girls selling brownies and lemonade at Kraftbomb yesterday raised a whopping $310, well done ladies!

Handmade 2011

There is something special happening in Wellington on Queen's Birthday Weekend in June. Handmade 2011 is a multi-stream event with a series of workshops and lectures on a variety of subjects including bookbinding, embroidery, traditional Maori weaving, soap making, beer brewing, chocolate making... I could go on and on, but I'd probably end up listing the entire programme! Go and have a look yourself - I'm sure you'll be as excited as I am to see many familiar names there. If you are quick, you can still purchase a class voucher which then gives you preferential class selection.
