2019 Conference Registrations Now Open
Registrations are now open for the 2019 Knitters' Guild Conference and for the Bristol Ivy Road trip.
2019 Sydney Royal Easter Show Poppy Project - Handmade with love
The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW are calling all crafters to start creating poppies that will form an installation for ANZAC Day.
People will be able to drop off their poppies off when they visit the Easter Show or post them in to RASNSW, 1 Showground Road, Sydney Olympic Park.
There are three options of poppies:
- Red for the soldiers;
- White for the nurses;
- Purple for the animals.
A copy of the pattern can be found here.
Bristol - Along
To celebrate Bristol’s visit and participation at the Conference in July, we are now encouraging all participants to knit any of her designs and wear it (or them) at the Welcome Reception on the Friday night.
Cast on is set for 12 March, 2019. More details can be found at Bristol-along.
Camp (Conference) 2019
Planning is underway for Camp 2019. As we all know, this event is proving to be more and more popular each time it is held. In response to member feedback, Camp is now evolving into a bi-annual conference.
What does that mean, I hear you ask? Well, Camp will be held in one central location with a number of options available for accommodation. Participants will have the ability to choose their accommodation to suit their own style and budget. However, you won’t have to do any extra leg work, it is anticipated that these options will be available as part of the registration process. All accommodation options will be connected to the venue by bus.
Of course, all the things we love about Camp will still be included, such as workshops, retail opportunities and the members’ marketplace. We will also have a conference dinner on the Saturday night with a keynote speaker after dinner. This will be our international guest.
Who is the guest, I hear you ask? Well, this knitting celebrity is well known across the globe, has 198 designs on Ravelry and has over 33,000 followers on Instagram. We are very pleased to announce that Bristol Ivy, from the USA, will be joining us next year.
Now for the details. Our conference will be held between 12 and 14 July 2019 in Newcastle. Make sure you put it in your diary so you don’t miss out.
More information about our conference will be made available as it comes to hand. Meanwhile, there is a team of people organising Camp, but if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me at president@ knittersguildnsw.org.au.
