The Best Textile Exhibitions in Europe
Twistedthread organise five exhibitions annually for creative, crafty people who appreciate textile art. The shows (listed on the left) are all open to the public and they each provide a unique visitor experience with great shopping, special features, galleries from professional artists, competitions, workshops, lectures and much more! It's a great day out so join us at Stitch & Craft (London), The Festival of Quilts (NEC Birmingham) and The Knitting and Stitching Shows (London, Dublin and Harrogate).
if you've been inspired by the Great British Sewing Bee on BBC2, make sure you come along to one of our shows to indulge your new passion and learn lots of new craft skills!
The Festival of Quilts launches in April!
We look forward to welcoming you to The Festival of Quilts 2013 from 8th to 11th August at the NEC, Birmingham.
