10th - 13th October 2019

The Knitting & Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace, London


A great show for stocking up your supplies, - yarn, threads, fabric etc etc. I love the Graduates Showcase area, and all the exhibitions its very unspiring to see the variety of work on display.


The easiest way to visit is to try and get on one of the organised coach trips. either by a textile group or a coach company. Check your local area and see if there is one you can book on to.
