This Saturday is World Wide Knit in Public Day, and there are events on around the country to celebrate!
Here in Christchurch we’d like to give a shout-out to the Midwinter Woolfeast, where they’ll be celebrating yarn in style with a gathering of New Zealand’s most talented fibre artists and indie yarn dyers – and Felt will be there too!
You can catch Midwinter Woolfeast from 10am to 5pm at the newly-built Te Hapua: Halswell Centre, 341 Halswell Rd, Halswell, Christchurch. Admission is free. For more information, check out their website (and you can find out about other official World Wide Knit in Public Day events on their webpage and in our What’s on This Week post).
And if you like more of a mix in your craft, make sure you also scoot over to Stash reHash (yep, it’s a busy day for Christchurch crafters, you can even get knitting on a bus!), where it’s all happening from 11am to 2pm at St Mark’s Church, Withells Road, Avonhead. This year’s Stash reHash promises to be bursting with sewing goodies in need of new homes, and it’s all in support of Arthritis New Zealand. Entry is by gold coin donation and you can find more details here.
