Website image - MJ Mucklestone - CrossXpoll 2024.jpg

Proudly brought to you by COPACC & Tarndie as part of CrossXpollinatioN 2024

Join us for an evening full of yarn(s - pardon the pun).

Mary Jane Mucklestone is a knitwear designer, teacher, and author of six knitting books specializing in stranded colorwork. Her volumes, 200 Fair Isle Motifs and 150 Scandinavian Motifs, sit on thousands of knitter's bookshelves worldwide. Endlessly inspired by traditional knitting, she likes to apply vintage ideas to modern knitwear.

Her latest book, Grand Shetland Adventure Knits, co-authored with her friend, designer Gudrun Johnston, takes the knitter on a trip to Shetland. Shot on location in stunning scenery, it includes patterns for the knits to wear or knit while visiting Shetland or wherever your adventures take you!

Mary Jane loves to teach and is thrilled to have the opportunity to visit Australia. She specializes in lively informative classes where history, craft, fashion, and location meet.

In addition to hosting 4 wonderful workshops out at the beautiful Tarndwarncoort Homestead, Mary Jane has also made herself available for an evening of yarns.

Come join us on Saturday, 15 June 2024 from 5.30pm.

The event will not only include exclusive after-hours access to the fabulous CrossXpollinatioN 2024 Fibre & Textile Art exhibition – a spectacle of fibre expressions dramatically presented through lighting and 3D space, but also food prepared by local caterer Fusion Restaurant and the COPACC bar will be open throughout the evening if you wish to purchase a drink.

Bring a craft project to work on if you like – tables and seating provided. Keep an eye out for spot prizes and a goody bag.
