Fibre, Fabric & Fashion
The Weekly Times Rural Lifestyle Expo will again host a dedicated Fibre, Fabric & Fashion Pavilion to showcase producers within Australia and our region.
If you love natural fibres, craft and design, knitting, weaving, crocheting, spinning or simply beautiful things this event is not to be missed.
Have you ever wanted to make a basket or find out how to turn a fleece into yarn, maybe how to knit a hat or weave a rug. Maybe blind making will take your interest or you would like to see beautiful displays. Come along and meet the experts and see it being done. It might just be the start of a wonderful new hobby!
Who doesn’t love to shop and in this pavilion you can enjoy purchasing from one of our talented traders including clothes, toys, fibre products, yarn and more.
