The Guild’s market supports yarn dyers and producers from around Victoria that mostly do not have shops or produce limited batches of yarns and colour ways. This is a golden opportunity to get up close to some yarn, talk to the makers and go home with something special.

This year’s Yarn and Craft Market is going to be bigger than ever with about 38 stalls of knitting related joy. Last year some stalls were so busy you had to make like it was a mosh pit and dive right in. We have mentioned most of the stall holders in the previous post but here are some more:

Cathryn will be back with Push My Buttons, Robyn, the Alpaca Yarn Lady will be there, Juliet will have a stall for Craft Circle, Donna will be there with Fibre Craft Yarn, Vivienne will be back with Fibres of the Yarra Valley, Can Do Books will have a great selection of knitting books, Dairing yarns will be back with their great collection of special yarns, Tarndie yarns will be joining us this year, Jennifer with Little Yellow Cat will be there, and Danielle with her lovely Half Baked Yarns. Gotland yarns are new this year and will be be selling Gotland rovings, fleece and yarn. Gotland is a variety of sheep known for its good nature and its soft and curly fleece.

On her Facebook Little Yellow Cat said, “I’m building up my Fairy Bread sock yarn stocks so it doesn’t sell out before lunchtime like it did last year.” That’s good to know, I like the look of that colourway. Although, Little Yellow Cats’, Blue Beetle and VoVO are also great names for those of us who like the nomenclature as much as the yarn.

If you are on Ravelry we have put the market up as an event and there is a discussion thread on the Guild’s Group page. It’s going to be a great market, so tell your friends and support these great yarn makers.

The Guild Committee have been busy inviting stallholders for this years market, organising our own retired books stall and completing this years raffle blanket. The market will happen on Sunday 21 May at the Coburg Town Hall, from 10am to 3pm. Entry is free. Many of our regular stallholders are coming back and some new ones have come onboard to keep it interesting. We are still supporting Victorian yarn makers and dyers that mostly do not have shops, online or in the world. This makes the Yarn and Craft Market a unique opportunity to meet the makers, see and feel their yarns and products, stock up your stash, and support the Guild.

Some of the stall holders returning this year are Ixchel Angora Fibres & Yarn, Nanny’s Spin On ThingsMiss Click ClackShiloh WoolMetafour StudioDyed By Hands YarnsCat & SparrowLara DownsKaye Adolphson DesignsRaxor Yarns & FibresChangeling YarnsColoured JulesPush My ButtonsThe Craft Circle, Crafty Yarns, Yarn Barn, Fibreyarncraft.
