We have been hard at work organizing the best event we can for the 2015 Fair! Vendor registration is now closed, and we are proud to present our speaker, demos, and other fun events! Read on for more information.
We hope you will join us on Saturday, September 12th, 2015, at the Kitchener Aud!
The Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters’ Fair is one of the largest all-knitting events in Canada. For many years, the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters' Guild has offered a one-day fair organized "by knitters for knitters."
This Fair, held at Kitchener Memorial Auditorium Complex in Kitchener, now presents over 60 vendors offering the latest and greatest of knitting products. Imagine two large rooms dedicated to craft of knitting, where you can see and feel the latest yarn, ogle the vibrant colours, visit with your friends, listen to a great speakers, and pamper yourself with a hand massage. We offer an incredible display of yarns and fibre in every colour, knitting books, patterns, tools, and accessories.
Some new things that we are working on for this year include scheduled demos by vendors, and a Micro Market for smaller local designers and knitting-related businesses. We have also increased our focus to include more fibre! So anyone who loves to spin their own fibre before knitting it will now have more options at the Fair.

This year we have Amy Singer joining us! Amy is the founder and editor of the wonderful online magazine Knitty.com, and is a knitting teacher, designer, and all-around lovely person. Read more about her on her website, amysinger.ca.
Whether your camera is in your phone, a cute little point-and-shoot or something with a few more features, taking better digital pictures is not rocket science. There are simple, concrete things you can do to make the photos you take better right now.
In this informative lecture, Amy will demystify the mechanics of photography. She'll tell you which are the most important settings to adjust on your point-and-shoot camera, and how to be the boss of your smartphone camera, too! She'll cover easy after-processing with iOS and Android apps (for smartphone pictures) and affordable alternatives to Photoshop for computer-based processing. And because good photography is not just about the equipment you use, she'll talk about how to take a good picture of your knitwear! We'll talk about models, locations, backgrounds, styling and more!
You won't want to miss this helpful lecture! Bring a notebook and pen!
Don't you deserve a little bit of pampering once in a while? As knitters, you put a lot of stress on your hands, back, and fingernails. To help relax and learn how to take care of your important tools, we invite you to indulge in our brand new Knitters' Spa!
Stop by Mind, Matter, and Motion for tips on keeping your most important knitting tools healthy (your hands, arms, and back!), or take a chair yoga class. Have a back or neck massage from an RMT. And get a hand massage and mini-manicure, free with a donation to the Grand River Hospital Foundation.
