COMPETITION - KNIT A FANØ TILE

You may have missed this in the program, because this is written in Danish, but we have a special competition for all festival participants this year.

KNIT YOUR OWN FANØ TILE

Fanø was once the homeport for Denmark's second largest sailing-ship fleet. The tile culture on Fanø is closely related to the heydays of the island. The tiles were used as ballast on the ships sailing from Holland to Denmark. Once home, the tiles were set into the walls creating the most beautiful patterns.

COMPETITION

Knit a square 20 x 20 cm in wool on needles 3,5 mm. Base colour must be beige/light grey and pattern colour must be blue.

Inspiration source is the Dutch tiles, but it is totally up to you which motif you wish to knit on your tile, you can design your own, if you wish.

You are free to embroider, crochet or  do something else to your tile. 

You can only submit maximum 2 tiles to us.

Deadline August 1, 2019.

Send your tile to:

Fanø Strikkefestival

4 Engen

DK-6720 Nordby Fanø

Denmark

Attach name and address on your tile.

We will crochet all the tiles together for one or more blankets. We do not send your tile back - it will remain here on Fanø for future exhibitions.

We will make a draw for the 3 nicests tiles - Price is 3 gift voucher of DKK 500,- each for Christel Seyfarth's (web)shop on Fanø.

NEW EVENING EVENT

We have a great brewery on Fanø, FANØ BRYGHUS - and it has just been beautifully renovated, so we thought we would offer an evening event in the brewery.

We have no prices yet, but Friday and Saturday evenings we will offer a cosy event, where we include a taste of various beers, brewed on the island, among these the famous knit-festival-beer "Knit-Wit". We will serve a light evenening meal and invite you to knit along for a few hours.

We just have to finalize prices together with the brewery, so have a look at the website within the upcoming week.

This may also be an event, your husband would like to attend to?
