Kerry Lord’s enchanting crocheted characters have captivated children and adults alike around the world resulting in her books Edward’s Menagerie and Edward’s Imaginarium becoming best-sellers.
Kerry, a knit and crochet designer from the UK, will be our guest artist at the fair and she’s bringing a load of her charming characters along too. Get ready to spend time with a suave high-flying rhino, a lovesick elephant who knows her way around a kitchen, and a seriously chivalrous tiger… plus Kerry will have a swag of Australian animals in tow
The menagerie began when with just two weeks to go before baby Edward’s due date, Kerry picked up a crochet hook for the first time and a new obsession began. Over the next 12 months the collection of crochet animals expanded week on week until Edward’s Menagerie was complete with 40 unique patterns.
