Unfortunately, our German instructor, Maria Weddewer, must have an operation during the knitting festival, and therefore she will not be able to conduct her workshops.

However, we are very pleased to inform you that we have another superb German instructor who will substitute Maria Weddewer's workshops,so there will be no cancellations.

The new instructor is Ulrike Eberts, she has been teaching at Fanø International Knitting festival a couple of years ago, and she is fully capable of taking over.

The festival office here on Fanø is getting busy with all the details which have to fall in place, before we can welcome you all on the island.

Please remember, that this year the festival area will be in another location than the harbour front. We will occupy the Fanø School and Fanø Hallen, a 2 minute's walk from the main street, Hovedgaden, in Nordby. 

The locations in Sønderho are still the same.

Have a wonderful weekend.


Best wishes

Christel and Jørgen Seyfarth
