Welcome to the home of fibretron

Purple Sprouting is proud to play host to fibretron for a fifth year. 2023 sees the event being held in a new venue. See below for details. 


Established in 2019, fibretron is Hamilton's very own yarn and fibre festival. Bringing together raw material producers, independent yarn dyers, knitwear designers and fibre crafters.

If you're a keen knitter or crocheter or passionate about spinning or weaving or any other fibre craft, then this is the place for you.  There'll be yarns from sheep, alpaca, llama and many others to choose from. If yarn's not your thing there's raw fibre, batts or spinning wheels and more.
