BARCELONA KNITS IS THE FIRST FAIR SPECIALIZED IN WOOL IN BARCELONA, CREATED FOR AND BY KNITTERS.
If you love to knit and you cannot imagine your life without skeins or needles, you have an appointment with Barcelona Knits.
Barcelona Knits 2020
This year is full of challenges for all of us, and Barcelona Knits is no exception. Our passion for needles continues stronger than ever, but COVID-19 has changed our ways of communicating, especially in shared spaces.
Right now, we do not know which will be the necessary health measures to hold Barcelona Knits as we did before, or even better than previous editions, with 50 exhibitors, 40 workshops, 12 workshop facilitators, 10 sponsors, 3.500 visitors and 20 people working for the event, as organizers or volunteers. We don’t know either until when will the aerial and terrestrial movement’s restrictions will last. All these unanswered questions are enough for an event that gathers visitors, workshop facilitators, exhibitors, sponsors, and an organization’s team.
Barcelona Knits 2020 | Online Edition
Due to these issues, we have taken the decision to continue with the edition and adapt the celebration of Barcelona Knits 2020 to an online edition. We believe that this year, more than ever, we cannot stop holding the party that unites us, even though it will suffer some changes. There will be a lack of hugs, but this is a moment to be together, to show our support to dyers, designers, brands, and people that love wools as much as we do. All of them have proved that their strength is stronger than a pandemic. Your patterns, your wools, your smiles, and your comments during this year have been the sign that this is a strong and united community.
Barcelona Knits 2020 wants to thank you as you have successfully gone thought those difficult moments of cancelation of other fairs, thank you because you have not stopped moving when the productions stopped or the frontiers closed. That’s why we want to be next to you even though we will need to travel through our screens in order to be closer.
More exhibitors than ever
We have decided that during Barcelona Knits 2020 there will be more exhibitors than in previous editions as a token of appreciation. All the brands that applied during the calling period, which finished on May 15th, and that meet all the admission requirements, will be exhibitors in Barcelona Knits 2020. All of them will be part of this virtual edition without any cost.
Each exhibitor will have its own space in barcelonaknits.com. On our web page, you will be able to find a brief description, a presentation video, their highlighted products, and a direct link to their web page. That way you will be able to buy your favorite wools, accessories, books, and needles directly from their producers, without intermediaries. And, if you have a whim, you will be able to ask it with time.
As you know, Barcelona Knits would not be possible without the collaboration of our sponsors. Some of them have been supporting us since the beginning and now more than ever we must thank them for believing in us and for supporting the online fair. That’s why each sponsor will have its own space on our web page as the exhibitors.
On September 1st, we will publish the list with all the brands. From that date until November the 8th, you will be able to see and choose the best products from each exhibitor. During those two months, you will have time to decide and make your loot of wools for all the season.
Workshops and online talks
We want to take the 3rd edition of Barcelona Knits to your house. We prepared very interesting workshops and we will do them online during the weekend of November the 7th and 8th.
Well-known international designers will teach these workshops online, and they will do it in Spanish and English, as in previous editions. Furthermore, you will be able to join free talks related to the world of wools.
We will publish the program of the workshops and the talks on September. The inscriptions will start on late September.
Remember that this year the wool party will begin in September in barcelonaknits.com with the presence of exhibitors and sponsors.
OFF Barcelona Knits
We will still be doing a unique face-to-face event, with limited seats: the official welcome to the fair’s weekend. This meeting in Barcelona will be the starting point of the weekend of November the 7th and 8th, days in which the online workshops and talks will be held.
We hope you will accompany us so this edition can help dyers and small brands.
Don’t let the wool party stop!
