Arts, Crafts, Yarn and Yarnbombing. Sound like your thing? This year’s Knitfest is set to explode with another year of fun, colour and all things yarny in a fun filled weekend of workshops, demonstrations, Trade Stalls, displays, music and good food at this free community event on July 8th and 9th. We will be yarnbombing and decorating the main street of Maleny which will come alive with yarnbombing, decorated Tree Cosy competitions, workshops, Guest Speakers, Kids Club, music, Friendship Bridge, competitions and craft markets. It is a magical event for families and a time for young and old to discover new skills, talents and creativity with the use of yarns including knitting, crochet, basket weaving, spinning and weaving, felting and lots more. The town will literally be wrapped in art, as 7′ high sculptures made from fibre decorate our street!
Our yarnbombed Mystic bus travels up and down the Festival Precinct. We want to expose the many Fibre artists, arts and crafts groups, knitting for causes groups, artisan groups and craft suppliers in this fun filled family weekend.
The theme for this year is “Under the Sea”. For more details, go to www.knitfest.com.au
