The Definitive and Best Exhibitions in Textiles!
The Knitting and Stitching Shows - open 10am to 5.30pm (closes 5pm Sunday) -
are the definitive and best exhibitions for lovers of textiles in the UK. As the name suggests, it covers knitting
but SO much more; felt-making
, shibori dyeing, jewellery-making, card-making, mixed media... the list goes on!
There is so much to see and do you'll find it hard to fit everything into one day; hundreds of exhibitors selling specialist supplies that you can't find in the shops, galleries from leading artists and groups, plus hundreds of workshops to introduce you to lots of new subjects!
2008 once again has an incredibly strong line up of top textile artists on show. Whether your favourites are Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn
, John Allen
with his magical exhibition of 'carpets for the wall', and mixed media inspired by Nepalese culture, or the beautiful stumpwork by Barbara and Roy Hirst
. These are just a few of the wonderful galleries on offer. Please click here
