It was all a bit of friendly banter, until the infamous Catherine, of Jam-off fame, picked up on it.
Now, suddenly, we have a time, a place, judges, an MC, a sponsor, and a prize.
How do these things always end up bigger than intended?
So at Craft2.0, today, at 2pm, the New Dowse, Lower Hutt, you will find:
Judges Hon Trevor Mallard, MP for Hutt South, and Megan Whelan, Radio New Zealand journalist
MC The amazing wonderful Jo of the Wellingtonista and SoContent
All sponsored by the fabulous Wendy of Cultured Petone (they make the best tiramisu. Ever. Which is how this all started)
So if you're out this way for some yarn, grab a taste of tiramisu, too. Brought to you by all the goodness of the hutt (and none of it paid for by Ministerial credit card!)
