Are you making a New Year’s resolution to start an exciting textile craft project, learn a new skill or buy your very first sewing machine? Then The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show is the place to start – and tickets are on sale now.
The Knitting & Stitching Show is the UK’s biggest textile art, craft and design event and the Spring show opens its doors to thousands of crafters at Olympia London on 1st -4th March 2018. From embroidery to dressmaking, needle felting to crochet, there are over 200 workshops and free demonstrations hosted by expert tutors, covering every textile craft imaginable. Whether you’re a complete beginner, an expert seamstress or somewhere in between, there is something for everyone, and with nine workshop classrooms, it’s the biggest Spring show programme ever. Workshops are bookable in advance on the show website now. Prices start at £15 for one hour, including all materials needed. Places sell out quickly so early booking is recommended.
If craft shopping is your bag, you’ll find plenty of opportunity to indulge in a little retail therapy with more than 150 specialist retailers under one roof. From yarn and fabric, buttons and beads to the latest sewing machines and gadgets, we guarantee you won’t go home empty-handed.
Galleries by leading textile artists, graduates and groups are sure to inspire, with exhibitions by Kate Whitehead (Not From The Stork), Anne Kelly (Folk Tales), Dionne Swift and her students from around the world (Collective Stitches), City Lit (Making), The Quilters Guild (Commemorating World War 1) and SAQA (Concrete & Grassland).
Contemporary cross stitch kingpin, Mr X Stitch (Jamie Chalmers) will be hosting The Mr X Stitch Guide to Cross Stitch, featuring new work by artists pushing the boundaries of the genre, plus cross stitch and canvas work from the Royal School of Needlework archives.
The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show takes place from 1st -4th March 2018 at Olympia London. Tickets are on
sale now and cost £13.50 in advance (concessions £12.50, children aged 5-18 £6.00). You can use my discount code GINGERBREAD18 to save money on tickets. A wide selection of options is available from www.theknittingandstitchingshow.com/spring or by calling 0844 581 1319.
