Yarn Lovers Tour- Northern Tasmanian Trip

It's on again!
We had so much fun last year we are going on another knitting/crochet day tour (or quilting as the places we are visiting also cross-over with quilt shops too).

If you are local in and around the Launceston area or from the south and want to be introduced to the delights of the northern yarn lovers come join us.

We leave Launceston on Saturday
13th June 2015
from the Brickfields Park, Canning St side

We'll be travelling to Deloraine first where we sill stop at the Alpaca Shop and have a talk with producers and spinners about the benefits of alpaca fibre. 
We will also have morning tea here.

Our lunch stop will be in beautiful Ulverstone where there are many cafe choices or you may decide to pack your own lunch and give yourself more time for shopping.
While in Ulverstone we will be visiting 

Cranberry Crafts
Sew and Wool
Under the Oak
for some hand spun and hand dyed yarns and a large range of commercial produced yarn as well.

Along the way we'll be having a charity knit-a-long to make a blanket and lucky door prizes.
We are not for profit. Just a bunch of ladies (most of us don't know each other) getting together with a shared passion and having a day out.

The cost is $30
This covers the hire of the coach and driver for the day and morning tea is provided. Lunch is buy or pack your own. We recommend you bring a bottle of water and a pair of needles or crochet hook suitable for 8ply eg: 4mm. Most of the ladies also bring along their current projects to work on during travel.

Send me an email if you would like to come. The more the merrier (and the plusher the coach!)


  1. Oh what a wonderful day! I'd love to come if I lived closer.....brissy is a bit far. Have a fantastic time together!

  2. Enjoy the outing! I'm too far away to attend, but will be here in spirit.

  3. Darn! I am visiting the northern Tassie area but going home too soon to join in this one. Have fun

  4. Sounds terrific. Disappointed that I won't be tagging along.
