Sunday 5 April 2020 from 10am to 4pm is going to be an exciting day for crafters and anyone who loves the feel of working with fibre and yarn, creating their own unique work of art. Fibre Feast SA are hosting their Premier Fibre & Yarn Craft Event at the Ardtornish Primary School, 2 Saarinen Ave (near Tea Tree Plaza), St Agnes and entry is $5 at the door. Be sure to put the date in your diary.
An amazing range of craft people and traders will be there showcasing the skill and expertise of the industry, hoping to inspire the crafting community of SA. What's not to love about fibre and wool which seems to call to yarn lovers, especially on the cusp of winter.
There's fantastic yarn-related local and interstate stallholders and traders, food and beverage trucks to keep you feeling chilled and a space to catch up and craft with friends. Close to public transport it's easy to get to, plus there's plenty of parking, including onsite disabled parking. Bring friends and spread the joy and love of working with fibre and yarn.
Colagirl Collective's Nicole will be at the event. She's an Adelaide based indie yarn dyer and one of the organisers for Fibre Feast SA. If you can't make it to the event, you'll also find her yarns and fibre on her Etsy Store. Come along to meet the very clever Amanda and Diana of Adelaide Hills Yarn & Co who are joining the event again this year. They specialise in chunky, recycled T-shirt yarn and macrame supplies. If you're after a bit or a lot of heart-melting gorgeousness, meet Brenda from Felting Ewe. She has adorable hand-felted fluffy little creatures and a gorgeous selection of felting tools and supplies, including hand-dyed fibre, so you can try making your own.
Mo & Mi's Peta will be joining the fun again with her mad sewing skills and heaps of cute accessories. If you're after direct from Farm to Fashion, Adaminca Alpacas make handmade garments with fleece from their own alpacas. They also sell a large range of both suri and huacaya fleeces, rovings and gorgeous alpaca yarn. Based in Woodside, SA this local business has been impacted by the bushfires and would really appreciate everyone's support to rebuild. Pay them a visit at their shop at 80 Onkaparinga Valley Rd, Woodside . These wonderful stallholders and more will be at the event.
