Crafters are taking over Darebin Arts Centre for a day of knitting, crocheting and basket weaving. The inaugural Melbourne Yarn & Fibre Festival kicks off at 10am, showcasing some of Victoria's top crafters and creative talents.
"Crafting is good for the soul", says Danielle of Raxor Yarns & Fibres. "The fibre craft community in Melbourne is so generous, creative, and above all welcomes people from all walks of life. It's like a secret club, but everyone is invited - if a knitter spots another knitter, it's an instant connection, and can spark a friendship that lasts a lifetime."
With a curated craft market, workshops, and communal crafting space, the Melbourne Yarn & Fibre Festival is bringing Melburnians together for a fun day full of creativity, shopping, and skill sharing.
For those who want to find out what it's all about, Melbourne Yarn & Fibre Festival is offering a series of workshops. Learn to spin your own yarn, weave a basket, or crochet your own mittens. To book a workshop, head to bit.ly/yarnfest.
