Anything you’ve made recently please bring it along for show and tell, we’d love to see.

Mini Manchester. A Not So Big Up North.
Following the success of MCM’s crafty city, MCM and Fred Aldous are teaming up to create a Mini Manchester!
Manchester Craft Mafia are inviting as many people to create a little building using any art material or method. The only restriction being the size and we hope the ‘Crafty City’ will grow and develop. Our city started on Thursday 19th August 2010 during MCM’s re-launch night with about thirty seven mini buildings and MCM hope it will grow from a village, into a town and then into a large ‘Crafty City’. We hope this will reflect the history of how Manchester grew from a little camp to what it is today, a large and very busy city.
The ‘Crafty City’ is a project for everyone. For crafters and non-crafters, for people living in Manchester or further afield in the UK and if possible people from overseas. Creativity is everywhere and in everyone, and we would like to encourage it out by providing the chance to contribute, share and make.
The only restriction is the size; it should be no bigger than 15cm by 15cm by 15cm – including the roof.
Inspiration can be taken from the buildings of Manchester or from the one you live in now, in the past or where you would like to live in the future or it could be one created from your imagination. Buildings can be sewn, knitted, cross-stitched, drawn or painted. You could make one out of wood, paper, Lego, card or clay. Anything goes!
The finished city will be exhibited at Fred Aldous Ltd. in Manchester city centre from 16th July – 31st July.
If you need one, there is a template available to download from the MCM website www.manchestercraftmafia.co.uk
You can deliver your submissions to our drop of point in store at Fred Aldous Ltd. or alternatively post them to:
Fred Aldous Ltd.

The Deadline for submissions to arrive is 24th June 2011.
