2015 Toronto Knitter’s Frolic


The Toronto Knitter’s Frolic is in the works! You’ve got a month and a half to prepare, and luckily so do we! 

The Toronto Knitter’s Frolic is an annual fibre festival organized by the Toronto Knitter’s GuildWe take part in the Frolic Marketplace, but you should also check out the workshops too, they are always EXCELLENT and the prices are very reasonable for that calibre of instructor (I have to work, but if I could I would take the Japanese Knitting Class with Alison Rose, and Photography for Knitters with Amy Swenson is also interesting).

Workshops 
Saturday, April 25, 9 – 5
Sunday, April 26, 10 – 5

Marketplace
Saturday, April 25, 9 – 4:30
Admission $6 – CASH only
Free for children under 12

Knit-O-Matic will be located by the pink “X” on the map above. When you enter the building turn left and walk towards the room with all the sunlight. We’ll put a big sign up above the booth to guide you the rest of the way. 




Instead of showing you a picture of people milling around booths, here’s a nice shot of all the eager yarnies waiting for the doors to open (don’t be daunted, the moves fast and is normally gone by 9:30 am).

We’ve prepared a little survey to help us improve our preparation this year. We want to know what you want from us, so we can bring it.
