Join us for “Knitting Delight”


Prjónagleði - Knitting Festival 2017 is the second annual knitting festival initiated by Textílsetur Íslands (The Icelandic Textile Center). The festival will be held in Blönduós, Iceland, the weekend of June 9 -11, 2017. The festival is modeled on the annual Knitting Festival in Fano, Denmark. Festival activities include up to 20 different workshops and lectures on a wide range of knitting topics, sightseeing trips to local knitting and textile sites of interest, a sales exhibition and much more. We look forward to bringing together experienced teachers and knitting enthusiasts from Iceland and abroad to celebrate “Knitting Delight” once again next summer! If you are interested in participating, please register on our website starting in early February 2017.
