You guys! The Knitting & Stitching Show is right around the corner and this year is promises to be better than ever!

Folding materialsThis year the event will run for five days and over 35,000 visitors are expected to come along to learn new skills, discover talented textile artists, meet fellow creative folks and shop for lots of lovely supplies.

No matter what aspects of textiles you are interested in there is sure to be something there to take your fancy…

SewingStitch-by-Stitch is an interactive feature, which brings together some of the UK’s leading experts demonstrating and sharing their skills.  From knitting, crochet and beadwork through to embroidery, sewing and weaving, Stitch-by-Stitch offers sessions for school children and complete beginners through to demonstrations for the more experienced textile enthusiast.

The Skill Exchange – the perfect chance for visitors to share their own skills with others in an informal social gathering at the show.  Whether an expert quilter, braider or even loom band maker, visitors can pop into The Skill Exchange and spend some time teaching or learning from their fellow visitors – perfect for all those who love to knit and natter or stitch and bitch.

The Great British PicKnit – visitors are invited to join the UK Hand Knitting Association, as they inspire newcomers to knitting and crochet, shining a light on passing on skills.  There will be one-to-one free tuition on how to knit or crochet – from those keen to learn the basics or more advanced techniques for those looking to experiment. Yarn and needles are all provided.

The Learning Curve – For those looking to enjoy a hands-on experience, the Learning Curve, in association with Groves, offers a comprehensive selection of workshops covering a broad range of knitting, stitching and craft subjects.  Whilst a brand new programme of lectures gives visitors the chance to gain a more in-depth knowledge from some of the leading lights of the knitting and stitching world.  This year’s speakers include Sandy Black, Debbie Bliss, Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn.

    I’d love a free ticket just because I really want to go but can’t afford the train fare, the entrance ticket and the hundreds of pounds I’ll spend when I get there!

    I need to build my fabric stash so this will be a great place to do it! Great giveaway. Thanks!

    I’ve just seen your giveaway on Instagram and would love to win a ticket to Ally Pally, because you can’t beat shopping for fabrics and supplies in person, surrounded by so many craft lovers!

    I’d live to win a pair so I can see some things up close (especially sewing machines!) as I don ‘t live near any big shops so only get to see things online.

    I would love to go and take a friend who is having a really bad time. It would cheer her up. We could buy some fabric so that she can do some quilting which she is just learning. x

    I took my daughter and her friend last year – both GCSE textile students. They came back with so many ideas and so inspired. They are now both predicted A / A* in their exams. I would love to take them again.
