Info for Attendees

The Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters’ Fair is the oldest and largest one-day knitting event in Canada. Organized and hosted by the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters' Guild, it is truly organized "by knitters, for knitters".

K-W Knitters' Fair

Details

The Fair is held at "The Aud" (Kitchener Memorial Auditorium Complex) in Kitchener, Ontario, and hosts over 80 vendors offering the latest and greatest of knitting products. The Fair is your one-stop-shop to see and feel the latest yarn, ogle the vibrant colours, visit with friends, have lunch, listen to a great speaker, be inspired by our Fashion Show, and pamper yourself at our Knitters' Spa.

Our vendors offer an incredible selection of yarn and fibre in every colour, knitting books, patterns, buttons, tools, and accessories. We also welcome several vendors who offer fibre for spinning. You should also visit the Micro Market, a space to showcase smaller local designers and knitting-related businesses.
