Oh yes, it’s nearly time for the Spring Knitting & Stitching Show and I’m getting ready to host another Inspiration Station for everyone! Featuring work from the De Denne competition by Young Embroiderers from across the UK, some terrific work from the uber-talented Charlotte “Hanging by a Thread” Bailey and the mighty Lord Libidan, and some great examples of embroidery courtesy of the Royal School of Needlework, there will be free cross stitch for you to try and it’s bound to be a great place to be!
We’ll be at Stand F50 so be sure to come and say hi! I’ll have some free calendars to give to people who ask for them, so if you’re paying attention that’ll be a nice freebie that’s still useful for ten months!
Hopefully you can make it to the show – it’s a great day out and filled with interesting stitchy stuff to look at. But don’t just take my word for it – here’s what the organisers have to say!
Dust off your sewing box and join us at the craft show of the year! The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show, Olympia, London. 5-8 March 2015
Spring is the perfect time to start some new craft projects and The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show offers everything you need to get started. Held at Olympia London, from 5th – 8th March 2015 the show offers the best craft products, workshops and inspiration all under one roof.
Shop from over 200 exhibitors offering fabric, yarn, patterns, threads, haberdashery and sewing machines. Treat yourself to some expert tuition in one of The Learning Curve Workshops which offer an extensive selection of practical classes covering knitting, crochet, patchwork and quilting and everything in between.
For those who want to make their own clothes we also offer The Dressmaking Studio* with a series of workshops dedicated to buttonholes, hems, seam finishing, zip insertion, dart, pleats, understanding patterns and everything else relating to dressmaking!
If you’re seeking ideas for interior projects, come along to The K&S Homestyle Theatre in association with Janome where we offer free sessions from sewing experts such as Lauren Guthrie from the BBC’s Great British Sewing Bee, on all kinds of home furnishing ideas.
