Upcoming Wellington knitting events!


I thought all the fun had died down after Wonders of Wool and Creative Fibre.  Well, look at what we have coming up next month in Wellington!

Social wool fair

This is not a ‘finished products’  market, but for the crafter.  If you are interested in having a table at the fair to destash a little, the cost is extremely reasonable.  There will also be yarn sellers there!!  Check out the website on the address in the poster to find out more.

Also, there is going to be another Lights Up Knitting Night!

Viewing The Great Gatsby in 2D, it’s on Monday 10th June at 7.30pm (tying in with Worldwide Knit in Public Day).  The Embassy Theatre will be themed Gatsby for the whole week, and from 5pm that night, Jelly Rolls will be playing live 1920s style music. Themed cocktail specials as well.

Tickets are now on sale via phone (04 384 7657) or in person at The Embassy Theatre. Tickets include a glass of wine or mocktail and are $20.

Yay for creativity in Wellington!!!

  1. Wellington is not a “dying city” at all despite a certain leader’s recent opinion. Perhaps we will become the “Creative capital”.

  2. hey, we already ARE the creative capital!

  3. What a great idea! Can’t believe all this fun wool and knitting stuff is happening and now I am not there! I hope you will post on it so I get the vibe of it anyway. Enjoy.

  4. Wish Wellington was right next door….
    So, are you going to knit something in style then ? Like a 20’s style jumper or a fancy bonnet.. ? 😉

    • Haha! No. 😉 Although wouldn’t it be cool to have a cloche-style hat or something. Hmm. I might think about that. The only thing with dressing up though is that if you don’t do it properly it just looks strange.

  5. I have just spent a day in Wellington and had lots of fun visiting your amazing selection of wool stores (thanks to your great blog post on where to find them and what they had).
    Would love to come back for this.

  6. Hi Kiwiyarns, thanks for the publicity! We’re planning a great event. If anyone has bright ideas for the afternoon activites, let us know.

    One useful thing we will have is wool winding for a gold coin donation, so people can rock on down with their skeins and get them wound into nice neat balls.
