Sunday 29 May 2016, 10am to 3pm is the date and time, entry is free, and Coburg Town Hall - 90 Bell Street, is where the Yarn and Craft Market shall be.

This annual market will be showcasing stalls of knitting, spinning and craft items by independent suppliers in Victoria. There'll be more than 20 stalls of hand dyed yarn, hand dyed fibre, batts for spinning, alpaca yarn and fibre, angora yarn and fibre, mohair as well as wool, knitting, spinning and weaving equipment and accessories.

As most of the stallholders do not have a bricks and mortar shop, this is a good opportunity to come along and see and feel the yarn for yourself.

Lara Downs Mohair, Merino & More; natural Yarns & Fibres

They'll be bringing with them a wealth of OOAK (one of a kind) skeins, hand dyed socks, hand painted yarns, art yarns and more. The Guild supports local producers of Indie dyed yarns, knitting and craft accessories. A not-for-profit organisation, it's run by volunteers who love to knit.

Raffle tickets will be on sale; the first prize, a large blanket made by members of the Guild with Bendigo wool. Now who would say no to that?!
