8th and 9th July 2017 – a whole weekend to enjoy the annual Yarn & Fibre Arts Festival in Maleny! Come and celebrate winter with art in the street, workshops, music and craft markets. Bring your own beanie or peruse the handmade stock at “Knitfest Central” at the Maleny Primary School Hall.
The main street of Maleny is transformed by the creative efforts of our local yarn and fibre artisans. One of our favourites from 2016 was the Tardis, made from individual crochet panels, erected on the front of the old (yes, we have a new one!) Maleny Police Station (photo courtesy of Kirk & Treens). But it was hard not to warm to the wool-webbed trees and colourful cows grazing at the bottom of Maple Street (photos courtesy of Knitfest).
The theme for this year is “Under the Sea” – who can imagine, what shell we see?
