Knitfest 2021

Wonderful news… Knitfest 2021 is almost here &, all going as planned, looks like being a fabulous weekend of fibre fun for all.

Knitfest 2021 (Sat 3rd & Sun 4th July) is only weeks away. The theme ‘There’s a Dragon in my Garden, will make it a fun couple of days. I hope many of you will come & browse the many trade stalls or even participate in a workshop or two. Check out what’s happening or book a workshop here.

This year my trade stall is No 24 & I’ll have the lovely Robyn Bailey helping me while I’m workshoping. Please, don’t be shy… come & say hello. 

I’ll be doing 2 workshops, both held at Knitfest Central Stage

(1) Off-set Granny Square (Sat 3rd July – 10am – 12pm)

A fabulous little stash-busting pattern. Squares measure approx 18 cm (7”) x 18 cm (7”) and are easily mastered. Create your own cot covers, knee rugs or even a bedspread.

Requirements: Participants must have good basic Crochet skills

Materials: The workshop includes yarn and pattern, in both written and graph (chart) form. Please bring your own hooks 3.5m – 5m

Cost: $45

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(2) Crochet Spirals (Sun 4th July – 2pm – 4pm)

Spirals are beautiful, centred, balanced & harmonious, yet, can be complex. The crochet spiral workshop takes away some of the mystery by taking you through the basics. You can adapt and experiment with spirals, to incorporate them into your crochet repertoire.

Requirements: Participants must have good basic Crochet skills.

Materials: includes yarn and patterns, in both written and graph (chart) form. Please bring your own hooks 3.5m – 5m

Cost: $40

As well as trade stalls, workshops & competitions there will be coffee & food vans, so bring your friends & make it a destination & an exciting day out…

Looking forward to seeing you there – cheers Renate
