Kawartha Yarn and Fibre Festival June 8!

Kawartha Yarn and Fibre Festival June 8!

This Saturday we're exhibiting at the second annual Kawartha Yarn and Fibre Festival!

Kawartha Yarn & Fibre Festival (KYAFF) is a single day event showcasing 80 local and independent vendors, with a mini-market for small businesses designed specifically to help small companies with great products put a spotlight on their unique products, attracting passionate fiber artists of all types. Knitters, crocheters, spinners and felters will all find something perfect for them.

Last year was KYAFF’s first year and they have exploded in size! We are joining them for the first time and have some big plans. We’ll share what we are bringing here to help you plan in advance.

And here’s our  festival Special:


*Excludes Gobsmaked mini skein kits

Stoney Lake Textiles
Locally hand-crafted bags using organic and canadian sourced materials. We’ll be bringing a festival exclusive DOPP bag in three limited edition linen blend Kokka prints. We’ve only got 15 of the DOPP bags so come early to avoid disappointment.


This Saturday marks the kick-off of the Cottage Country Yarn Crawl at KYAFF and the launch of our limited edition Wild Columbine inspired mini skein kit! Locally dyed by the super talented Marit Munson of Gobsmacked fame, each kit is beautifully unique, and designed to knit up in a dappled, subtle gradient. Use as part of the CCYC wildflower shawl, or any project your heart desires. We'll have them available starting at the festival this weekend then at the shop for the duration of the crawl while supplies last.

Brooklyn Tweed

Our booth will have a curated palette of colours in Arbor, Peerie, and Loft as well as a trunk show including the worsted spun version of Crosshatch, the Perch shawl in Loft, Andrea Mowry’s Wool & Honey in Loft, Boardwalk in Peerie and more.


The Fibre Co

We’ll be bringing a curated selection of colours in Acadia, Luma, Meadow, Road to China Light, and Cumbria Fingering. The Fibre Co. Have lent us the trunk show for their SS19 Foundations Collection, and some classics like the Tallinn capelet in Road to China Light, Tamdou in Cumbria Fingering, and Falls of Foyers in Road to China Light. Deanna will be bringing her Threipmuir by Ysolda Teague and Sarah will be wearing her new Beekeeper Cardigan in Acadia!



Our entire inventory of mYak Baby Yak Medium and baby yak silk will feature! This is your chance to finally knit a Hipster shawl, or a Fading point by Joji Locatelli. We’re also bringing Melanie Berg’s Two Roads Shawl from her book, and a cute little colourwork hat called Venture.


June Cashmere

We’ll be bringing our entire inventory in both DK and Lace weight! They have lent us a selection of projects but perhaps the most stunning is the Norah Gaughan Sandwaves Poncho. We’ll also have a number of one, two, and 3 skein projects available such as Archa and a cabled cowl by Tanis Gray.


Last but not least, get your Cocoknits on! We’ll have a selection of their hand Accessories. We think you need a Maker’s Keep in your life, and this video will show you why.

Wow, so much happening! The Kawartha Yarn and Fibre event looks great and the weather is supposed to be great too. Wonderful time for an outing.
The Cottage Country Yarn Crawl sounds like a wonderful reason to go exploring. I’ll just leave my Yarn Passport in the car. You never know when you might need a excuse to escape the cottage on a damp weekend.
Love Coco Knits Maker’s Keep. Now that is a practical innovation!
