Berlin knits 2017

Berlin knit

 

Berlin knit er er strikkefestival som går av stabelen 30.09 til 1.10 2017 i Phorums Campus  i Berlin.Inngangsbillett for en dag koster 12 Euro og weekendpass 20 Euro.Festivalen arrangeres for andre gang i år av Steffi og Marion.

We met at – guess ? yes of course, at Ravelry – almost ten years ago! We both share the love for knitting and precious yarn – but precious yarn wasn´t available – even in an big city like Berlin. It was only a question of time until we opened our own Yarnshop => Yarn over Berlin went live in January 2012! Although we have «real jobs» in our «real lifes» a new life began. We met yarn companies and dyers and became friends with many designers – plus there is our very active Ravelry-group which feels like home.

 

 After visiting the  New York Sheep & Woolfestival in Rhinebeck, New York and being a vendor at Wollfest Hamburg 2014 it was for sure=> Berlin needs an  internationalYarnfestival, too. Pretty spontaneous and in less than five months time we organized the first Berlin Knits Yarnfestival which took place in May 2015. Looking back to these days still fills us with lots of joy – it was more than we could dream of – heartwarming encounters inbetween colourful yarn and a networking-platform for people who never met before inreal life! This year it is a different location – and fall instead of spring – but what it´s all about hasn´t changed => knitters from all over the world, wonderful designers and vendors who offer everything a knitter can dream of!

Phorums Camps

We chose the Phorms Campus in the heart of Berlin as this years location for the Berlin Yarn Festival. Phorms is a bilingual private school in Berlin-Mitte. In its nursery, primary and secondary school the students are taught in German and English – a perfect location for knitters from all over the knitting universe.
Phorms Campus is located in Ackerstraße 67, 13355 Berlin – not far from Hauptbahnhof, Berlins main station. Many Berlin sights are close by, for example Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer, the Museum for Naturkunde or famous Mauerpark.
You can reach our location best by using public transportation – S-Bahn «Nordbahnhof» or U-Bahn «Voltastraße» are just a short walk away. There also is a bus – Bus 247 – stopping right in front of the door (get off at Gartenplatz) which gets you to Hauptbahnhof or the railwaystation «Gesundbrunnen».
