Fibre Feast SA, Coromandel Place, Blackwood, South Australia

Last year, Fibre Feast was at Blackwood which I was unfortunately forced to miss due to illness on the day (such is life with chronic unpredictable 'lupey' illnesses).  The word on the street was that it was so successful and busy that a bigger venue was necessary for this year.

I hope I will be able to overcome various challenges to attend this year.  It is one time to meet and sample wares from so many local yarn suppliers in one place.  Some come all the way from regional areas just to attend this event.

Have fun everyone!

  1. Sounds wonderful, I am sure it will be a great day out.

    1. Unfortunately I couldn't make it. I heard that it was busy but people had a good time. I'm sure there will be lots of sharing of yarn hauls on social media this week!

  2. I wish I could have joined, my kind of event.

    1. You might be able to view and order some of the offerings online. If you like hand dyed yarn you will find it amongst the stallholders of Fibre Feast SA.

    1. It does. One of these years I will get there to SEE how great it is. ;-)

  4. I went to the Fibre Feast at about 10:30am and the room was full of stalls and people looking at them. You could move around at this time but it did get progressively fuller. People were lovely though as we were all there for the same reason of finding some lovely fibre. For wheelchair accessibility the main concern would have been getting from the footpath into the school grounds. Where I entered there were small stepping stone pavers in sand. There may have been more accessible entrances than this one though. The venue was accessible however the crowd would have made moving around very difficult. I did a quick circuit of the venue to see types of yarn, colours and prices as well as wool roving before making my selections and leaving as I had other commitments to get to. I would have liked to stay for longer.

    1. Thanks so much for the review of your time at Fibre Feast, Kylie. The event promoted accessibility şo there must have been another entrance. Perhaps it's a venue that might need scouting out beforehand.
      I'm glad you found lovely yarn and fibre. Now to wait and see what you will make with it! (Smiley face)
