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 70 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 speaker, and pamper yourself with a hand massage. We offer an incredible display of yarns and fibre in every colour, knitting books, patterns, buttons, tools, and accessories.
Last year we introduced the Micro Market, a space to showcase smaller local designers and knitting-related businesses, and we were happy to see how well that went! The Micro Market will be back this year with some returning and some new vendors.
And for you fibre-fanatics who do multiple crafts, we haven't forgotten about you! Our knitting focus will continue to include fibre for spinning, including some wonderful new farms joining us.

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 at our Knitters' Spa!
