Xeirotexnika in Thessaloniki

This year the world of crafters in Thessaloniki is happy to welcome the greatest handicraft exhibition in Greece (and maybe the only one) #xeirotexnika.It will be inside the grounds of the International Trade Fair #thessaloniki on 11th and 12th October.

Of course I will visit it both days. There are special workshops on the first day too organized by my friends Anna Dragatsika of inmycloset and Eleanna Barba of Aouts-pins.

You will find all kinds of presentations, exhibitions and supplies for crafts that we, in our city, had been expecting for a long time.
Also there will be yarnbombing too for a good cause so you can take part too. Find all the info about it here.

Also a little woolen smart car will be going around Thessaloniki from today till the exhibition so if you see it just go and take a picture of it and youself and post it on facebook, Instagram or Twitter with hastags #xeirotexnika and #thessaloniki and @xeirotexnika.
You can find the whole programme here. And the workshop programmes here.
There is also a competition with great gifts you can take part here.

You can find all the info you need here.

It sounds like a really fun craft expo. Love the idea of the woollen car and what on earth is yarn bombing?
