The 2007 Melbourne Scarf Festival: SPIN

Deadline: May 28, 2007

Melbourne Scarf Festival: SPIN
28 June to 7 July

Craft Victoria's annual Melbourne Scarf Festival is just around the corner, and it's time to start preparing your entries for the festival. In 2007 the Scarf Festival is expanding, becoming a 10 day festival, from 28 June to 7 July. The festival will include the Scarf Exhibition as well as a jam packed array of workshops and discussions.

The 2007 Melbourne Scarf Festival returns to the very basics of making with a celebration of the spinning process. Previous festivals have explored the religious, cultural, tribal and technological life of scarves. Now we turn to the very mystery of the making process. For scarf makers, SPIN will be an opportunity to experiment with different threads and highlight the way scarves might be worn on the body.


To keep up with the high demand for participation and increased interest in the 2007 Melbourne Scarf Festival we have introduced a small administration fee for all entries. However, this year there will be no commission taken on scarves sold during the festival. This means that makers will receive the total sum on sold scarves and can keep their prices down, again, encouraging sales and participation.

Once again there will be a limit of 3 entries per person and the following fee structure will apply.

Craft Victoria Members - $15 per entry (i.e. one scarf $15, two scarves $30, three scarves $45)

Non-members - $25 per entry (i.e. one scarf $25, two scarves $50, three scarves $75)

17 years and under – Free
