The annual Knitting & Stitching show, the definitive event for anyone with a love of stitch and crafts is set for October 8-12 at the Alexandra Palace in London. The Knitting & Stitching Show is the largest and most highly regarded textiles and craft event in the UK. Whatever your craft passion, it is the perfect place to find inspiration, learn new skills and shop for all your essential supplies.
Ally Pally, you are calling my name. Oh, if I could only whisk myself from here in California way over to London (easily and inexpensively), I would be there in a heartbeat! Actually, a few of my knitter friends from around the world thought it would be fun to meet up there. It didn't work out this year, but maybe next? I hear this is a fabulous show and I envy any of you that are near enough to visit it. If you can plan for a visit, I have an opportunity for free tickets at the end of this post.
Visit the beautiful and informative Knitting & Stitching Show website for all the details.
Daily fashion shows from Coats and Clark featuring Rowan and Kim Hargreaves designs.
If you go, please send me pictures of the knitted pergola!
