Maleny Knitfest 2023 wrap up…

It’s hard to believe, exactly one week ago today, I was packing the van for Knitfest, fretting about whether I had everything, hadn’t forgotten anything; those of you who do these type of events will know exactly what I mean. Of course, once my trade stall was set up & all the hellos & hugs with familiar folk was done, the nerves & doubts disappeared.

Knitfest 2023, what a fabulous weekend it turned out to be with thousands of fibre enthusiasts creating a cheerful buzz over the 3 days. The variety of trade stalls delighted everyone & the workshops generated positive feelings of activity & fibre joy.

I’d like to thank everyone who attended my workshops. I hope you learnt something new & feel inspired to carry on with your crochet journey. Thank you to all the customers & well wishers. It was a pleasure meeting you all. Thank you also to everyone who voted in the competition, awarding me first place. The theme this year was ‘Wild Women’ – my entry was ‘Girls with Attitude (our future wild women)’

And, last but not least, the biggest thank you must go to Robyn Baily who attended my trade stall while I workshopped. I couldn’t have done it without you. Your cheerfulness & energy is amazing & appears to have no limits.

So, that’s it for Knitfest 2023, in my opinion, the best one ever. Rumour has it that, Debs, the industrious organiser & originator of the event may retire. The hope is that others can fill her shoes, take the reins & keep the momentum going.

And so, that’s a wrap…
