This year Knitfest is joined by the Australian Alpaca Association, Qld Branch, as they hold their Annual Fleece and Halter Show.
Held over 2 weekends this year (due to another booking at the showgrounds), the Alpaca Fleece Show will be held on the Saturday of Knitfest and the Halter Show will be held on the following Saturday. This should be a very interesting event as visitors will be able to see the judges doing their actual judging. You will be able to hear the judges comments and reasoning as they perform the judging tasks. There will also be some fleeces for sale. Don’t forget to check out Spinning Central this year in the Maleny RSL on Sat June 30th. Julie Armfield will be hosting a workshop on Spinning Boucle Yarns. Bookings essential under ‘Workshop Bookings’.
Ride the free Knitfest bus to the Fleece Show and see the yarnbombed Tree Cosies in the main street, in comfort.
Knitfest is proud to support the Qld branch of the Australian Alpaca Association.
