Thanks to the good work of Lara I'm so pleased to tell you that the Northern Craft Bonanza will be back up and running as of next week.

The first change I need to let you know about is that we have changed to Wednesday night.

We also have a new venue.  We'll be meeting at Stuzzi Cafe, Bar & Lounge and we'll see if it works for our group.  We have a booking for next Wednesday 16th March for some booths up the back of the cafe.  

You'll find Stuzzi at 319 - 325 High St, Northcote.  It's easy to get to by public transport (take the 86 tram from the city or the Epping train to Northcote and walk to High St).  There's also great parking out the back, which I think you can access via Arthurton Rd or Hawthorn Rd.  You can enter the venue directly from the back carpark.  There's also parking out front on High St.

If you're not familiar with the NCB here's the general scoop:
  • The Northern Craft Bonanza is a fortnightly craft group open to anyone.  
  • BYO your own hand-held craft project along.
  • We meet fortnightly on Wednesdays from 7-9pm.  (The great thing about Stuzzi is that they are open all day and late into the night so you can get there earlier or stay later if you want to.  They also offer meals, snacks, drinks, coffee, cake, etc.  Something for everyone.)
  • There is no need to RSVP and there is no cost, except for any food and beverages you want to purchase.
 So that's it.  We are good to go again.  Hope to see you next week.

And again, huge thanks to Lara for offering to help out with running the NCB this year, and for getting the ball rolling.  She's the reason we are up and running again.
