there is an event dedicated specifically to Crochet!
Raise your hooks, come and celebrate with us for the Crochet Guild Australia Inaugural Conference and ‘Let the Sunshine In!’
The Conference was held at the Maroochy RSL Events Centre on the Sunshine Coast on June 4th, 5th and 6th 2021. Three glorious days in Queensland in winter! There were 16 workshops for all skill levels scheduled across the three days where you had the chance to learn from expert teachers.
Members mingled with like-minded people and shared finished projects at the Friday evening welcome event and shopped for yarn, hooks, books and notions at our 3-day Trade Show.
The Saturday night Crochet Banquet Dinner included a wonderful guest speaker, Dr Veronica Lampkin, who told us about Madame Weigel, the woman who clothed the Australasian Colonies. And last but certainly not least, a fashion parade was held before the dinner - all crochet pieces of course!
All the information about the 2021 Inaugural Conference is below.
We are planning the next Conference for 2023.
