Hi everyone…The Maleny Knitfest 2019 is almost here; 2 fabulous days of fibre Fun for everyone. Sat, 6th July & Sun, 7th July.
The theme this year is Australiana. As in previous years, Knitfest is shaping up to be a fabulous weekend of gorgeous fibre fun, with workshops, exhibits, trade stalls, competitions & much more… so there’ll be something for everyone.
Check out & book your worksop here, I’m sure you’ll find one to interest you; workshops are filling fast so, to avoid disappointment, don’t leave it too long. If you’d like to know more about this year’s presenters, you can see them here.
For those who enjoy a little challenge, why not give the competitions a go: individuals, groups & businesses can all enter… check out the categories here. It’s only $5 per entry & you can enter as many times as you like… This year there’s even a socks category… Yes, socks…
I will have a trade stall again this year, selling my freeform pieces, my books & patterns & presenting the following workshop:
Title: Crochet Flowers with a Difference. Sunday 7th July 2019, morning session (10am to 12 noon)
About the Workshop: An introduction to crochet flowers worked a little differently. Fun & practical motifs to enhance & decorate your projects: beanies, hats, scarves, thongs & shoes, headbands : turn them into brooches, garlands & lanyards: or anything your imagination can conjure up. The worksop includes 6 patterns, each a little different from the other. Patterns are in both written & graph (chart) form. You can make as many flowers as time allows.
- it’s essential that participants have good basic crochet skills
- bring along your own collection of hooks & a large-eyed darning needle
- I will supply 6 patterns to choose from
- I will supply some basic, plain coloured 8ply yarn, however, please feel free to bring along your own favourite colours & yarn

So looking forward to a great weekend. Take some time out for some fibre indulgence… hope to see you there, cheers, Renate
