DIY @ Museum of Vancouver
On April 9, 2010,The Museum of Vancouver hosted a social crafting night,
in conjunction with the exhibition Art of Craft.
Over 300 people attended!
Birkeland Bros. did demonstrations and hands-on workshops on spinning, felting, or weaving.
The knit-pit was a hot spot for new and experienced knitters alike.
We had fun and we hope those who attended did so as well.
Birkeland Bros. wishes to thank The Museum of Vancouver for this wonderful event.
