The Knitting & Stitching Show is the UK’s biggest textile event. Thousands of textile art and craft fans flock to the Harrogate Convention Centre every year in the run up to Christmas to learn new skills, be inspired by top tutors and experts, view spectacular galleries by leading contemporary textile artists, meet the next generation of textile talent and top up their knit and stitch supplies.
This year’s Harrogate highlights include: The Learning Curve programme featuring over 250 workshops; a dedicated Dressmaking Studio (sponsored by Vlieseline Freudenberg) offering beginner to expert-level classes; Knitworking drop-in knitting and crochet lessons with volunteers from UK Hand Knitting; Artists in Action, where practising artists will be demonstrating their techniques in a live studio environment; The Craft Village featuring small boutique craft companies and comfortable places to sit and relax; the Innovation Station (in association with Baby Lock), featuring live demonstrations of the latest craft products; and over 250 exhibitors selling essential craft supplies.
