We had so much fun with the FibreFest knit-a-long that we thought we should have another one! This time, it’s the ‘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. What a great way to show our appreciation, don’t you think?

Cast On is from 12 March 2019 and there will be a thread in our Ravelry group and we also encourage you to share your progress and finished items on social media using the following hashtags:

#knittersguildnsw
#bristolivyknitalong
#kgnswcon2019

Visit Bristol Ivy’s website, sign up for her newsletter and benefit from a discount on her Ravelry store patterns. We are aware that Bristol Ivy is a knitwear designer, but we hope
our crocheters will join in with some Bristol Ivy-inspired crocheted items.

Missed out on a workshop at FibreFest?  Good news - a new one has just opened up for booking.

 

 

 

 And to help you get over post FibreFest blues.
