Expanding to become the Fibre Festival of the North East, the event features an arts precinct full of market stalls, yummy treats, pre booked workshops, quilt displays and fibre art over multiple sites, all within an easy and picturesque walk.
The town of Alexandra comes alive with all things beanie, as lamp posts, shops and businesses take up the fibre festival challenge. Beanies and winter warmers of all shapes and sizes are donated, displayed and available to purchase. You can even bid for your favourite creation if you can't make it in person. Check out the website to see last year's creations.
Anyone can create and donate a beautiful beanie, beginners and children are encouraged to enter. The 'Beanie Kids Recycled Creations' category can be made of any material. The 2024 theme is 'Mythical Creatures'.
For further info on how you can enter and donate a beanie or two, category details, conditions and entry forms, look for the Festival brochure on the website or visit the Facebook page. Proceeds from the sale of the beanies go towards local charities within the community of Murrindindi.
