The wool fair season continues! Hurrah!!
If you are in Wellington or visiting around this time, you might like to know about the following dates:
21 June – Social Wool Fair
This is the second year this fair has run. It’s a mix of stalls for both “new” yarn and the big “destash” event for knitters and crocheters who want to offload yarn they will no longer knit or magazines/books and crafting-related supplies that they will no longer use. Have a look here and here for more information. Lots of indie people appear to be coming whom I haven’t been aware of before…
This year, the event is being held on Saturday 21 June, at St Anne’s Hall, Emmet Street, Newtown. From 10am to 4pm!
2 Aug – Wonders of Wool
This event is so popular that the Wellington Underground Market organisers have put on a second event day! 10am to 4pm at the Wellington Underground Market, Jervois Quay, Wellington Waterfront.
27th/28th Sep and 4th /5th Oct Fashion and Accessories Market
Not strictly a yarn event, but I do know that at least two yarnies who have booked stalls for this feature market at Wellington Underground Market, which is being held during the World of Wearable Art weeks. Address and time, same as for Wonders of Wool.
Slurpy, slurp! I had better start saving my pennies!
