Offers for the Spring Knitting and Stitching Show at Olympia London

Thank goodness for the Knitting and Stitching show! I've been holding to my New Year resewlution and working through my stash, and I reckon I'm just about ready to go and restock! What I also love about these events is that there's lots to explore beyond the retail therapy - there's a huge list of workshops to learn new skills in too. Tickets do sell out fast, so I'm posting this exclusive discount code now, while there are still spaces left! Read more for details....

What is it?

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, starting at £15 for one hour, including all materials needed. Places sell out quickly so early booking is recommended.

What is it like?

So far, I've only been to its sister show, the Great British Sewing Bee Live, last September (more details on what that was like here). The Spring Knit and Stitch show is definitely bigger, and has a lot of exhibitors for a range of crafts. Some fabric stores are exhibiting here that weren't at the GBSB live, so I'm excited to see what they bring. At the shows you can find that stores bring fabrics that having their debut at the show, there are pattern bundle deals, and there are also dressmaking kits on offer so you can get all your supplies in one go....I particularly remember Guthrie and Ghani had a great jeans kit at their stall at the GBSB live. You might also meet one of your sewing idols....they often run their stalls and workshops but be warned that it is quite busy there too.
