celebrating THE ART OF FANTASTIC FIBRE CREATIONS, the Festival is expanding to become the Fibre Festival of the North East.
Update… Due to social distancing regulations, the Murrindindi Beanie & Fibre Festival is this year being held online during the Beanie Fest week from July 25th to August 1st. Therefore the MBFF is not holding workshops or participating in any classes during 2020. You will however be able to purchase kits from guest artist Kaye Adulphson, to keep your creativity flowing. For more information you can find Kaye in the drop down box under ‘workshops’
not just Beanies….
Since it’s inception in 2015, the Murrindindi Beanie and Fibre Festival has been more than just an amazing feast of fabulous beanie creations. Every year this celebration of fibre art has grown and evolved, fast becoming the must see funky fibre art event of the North East.
In early 2020, the Murrindindi Beanie & Fibre Festival was excited to announce the inclusion of workshops on Thursday & Friday leading up to Beanie Festival weekend. Unfortunately workshops & classes have been canceled in 2020. Stay tuned for further information about who, what, when and how to secure your place in this truly unique fibre festival in 2021.

Can’t wait ’til winter? If you live in or nearby Alexandra, knitting and crochet classes are being held all year round in the Alexandra Library, Grant St Alexandra every Friday from 2pm, by our knit and crochet artists Sue and Heather. Available for anyone to join in and learn some super groovy stitches to enable you to make your own beanie or winter warmer. Our crochet artists Sue & Heather are looking forward to seeing all their supporters in 2021…
The Murrindindi Beanie and Fibre Festival is always looking for community knitting groups to get involved and support the festival. The MBFFV is non for profit with money raised going towards providing wood for the elderly and disadvantage and numerous community based projects.
