We’re knit kidding: The Australian Yarn Show 2024 is happening this weekend

Posted on

Knitters, crocheters, those who love a good yarn (sorry), rejoice!

The inaugural Australian Yarn Show is happening this weekend – and it’s right here in Canberra.

The brainchild of sustainability advocate, businesswoman and keen knitter Caterina Sullivan (whose journey of falling in love with the art of knitting we wrote about here), the Australian Yarn Show will deliver a massive weekend for knitters and craft enthusiasts alike at Rydges Canberra across Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 March.

Promising a “weekend of creativity, education and connection” the Show will feature stalls, workshops, guest speakers and yarn-related businesses in a diverse program that blends craft and community.

Sponsored by Yarn Trader, Fancy Yarns Australia and MGI Joyce|Dickson, the weekend will feature fibre art galore – from crochet to knitting, weaving to spinning, felting and more, there’s something for everyone, and no, you don’t need to know how to knit to attend.

In fact, we feel this would be a very good place to start for any aspiring crafters.

Inside the Show, the market hall will feature quality products from makers and artisans from across Australia while on the main stage, you’ll hear from guest speakers, watch demonstrations, learn from panel discussions and watch (and perhaps even participate in) a competition or two.

“Our focus is on the learning component of the Australian Yarn Show,” explains Caterina. “We aim to demystify the yarn production process, introduce participants to the arts of dyeing and pattern designing and equip them with valuable tips and tricks to enhance their fibre arts skills.”

Whether you’re a seasoned artisan or a curious beginner, one or two-day tickets can now be purchased at yarnshow.com.au.

Go on, we bet it’ll be a purl of a weekend.
