There are so many signals that the summer is drawing to a close: Moms are getting their children ready to go back to school, the CNE is on in Toronto, Labour Day is this weekend, and the mums are growing in the garden. Sad to know that our short summer is coming to an end and that we'll all be back to our regular routines after the labour day long weekend. 

But it also signifies it's time for the knitting fairs to begin! The first event is the Knitters' Fair which is organized by the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters' Guild by knitters for knitters. This year the show boasts 70 vendors offering the latest and greatest knitting products in a 35,000 square foot showroom. This year it will be held at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium Complex which is a new venue for the event.

The vendors will offer a dazzling array of yarns, knitting books, patterns and accessories.

Date     Saturday, September 14th

Time     9:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Place    Kitchener Memorial Auditorium Complex
             400 East Avenue
             Kitchener, ON

Anne Blayney is the featured speaker at the event. The topic of her presentation is ColourRIOT: Making and using your personal colour palette in knitting and beyond! Anne will begin speaking at 11:00 AM and this is being offered at no cost on a first come - first serve basis.

A fashion show will take place at 1:00 PM.
