WELCOME to Creative Incentives and the home of THE TRAVELLING YARN – Farm to Yarn trails, workshops and experiences worldwide.

When asked to put together a textile program in New Zealand, our little office changed overnight. 24 hours is all it took for some of the most sought after suppliers in NZ to jump at the opportunity to be part of bringing like minded individuals together and showcasing what NZ has to offer.

The team at Creative Incentives will be leading a group of yarny artists (we call them yarnists, yarners, travellers and all things fibre) on an exciting journey from farm gate to yarn production and all the lovelies in between – ensuring we have on the agenda trips to alpaca, sheep and angora farms, shops, dye houses, mills, spinning houses, oh and lets visit a few more shops!

There’s always new things to learn when working with wool, cotton, silk and all fibres in general and we have sourced some of the most talented fibre artists around the world in stunning locations to share with us their knowledge.

As part of our experiences, guests will be part of workshops and specialised programs whilst being fully immersed in ‘yarn heaven’.

With extensive experience creating unique and exciting programs, we will ensure your time with us will be full of fun, friendship and loads of yarn!

Event Manager Gaille Smith has been working in the event industry for over 18 years, beginning with volunteering at the local school fair, to managing Hi-5 and The Wiggles at their local concerts. Moving on to large scaled trade shows, conferences, gala dinners, group incentives and marketing both print and online.
