Maribo Craft Days are a festival for needlework, craft, handicraft and sustainability. We do also call it a festival for magical hands.

 The festival of magical hands takes place in week 41, 12th-17th October 2021.

Maribo on the island Lolland has been chosen as home for the festival of magical hands, because Maribo has no less than six unique needlework shops. On Lolland there are many people, who love working with their hands. From professional quilters to guitar builders and stonecutters. Maribo has a fantastic nature and cosy surroundings and is the perfect location for Maribo Craft Days.

Maribo Craft Days have been created and created by the ones, who love using their hands. In Maribo you find no less than five (six) unique needlework shops and one of them, BEO BEO Quilt Workshop, managed to persuade the others to participate. With help from Iværksætter Lolland and Maribo Handel Maribo Craft Days were brought into being and now people from far and near come to experience a week, where we together act for the future.

The festival grew already when it took place for the second time. Thus we have hired a project team this year who organizes many of the practical tasks. You can contact the team on hej@maribocraftdays.dk
