The Best Textiles Exhibition in Europe
Opening times: 10.00am to 5.30pm (closes 5.00pm Sunday).
Knitting and Stitching Shows are the definitive and best exhibitions
for lovers of textiles in the UK and Ireland. As the name suggests, it
covers knitting and stitching 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!

22 to 25 November 2012Here's a few quotes from our visitors to the show in 2009:
I visited the show yesterday and as always thoroughly enjoyed it - the day just wasn't long enough! I especially enjoyed the exhibitions, and it is good to know textiles are alive and well in the Graduate Showcase. There was a very good mix of disciplines - something for everyone I felt and even in these financially constrained times there appeared to be a lot of retail therapy going on... So, keep up the good work and I look forward to next year!Ann Sparkes
Thank you so much for an amazing show at Alexandra Palace this weekend.
Three of us travelled from Bristol... and thoroughly enjoyed the show... The atmosphere was good, if a little hot, and everyone so friendly and helpful. One of us attended a shaded embroidery class and the tuition was excellent there too. Congratulations from three very grateful stitchers - one cross stitcher, one embroiderer and a quilter. A brilliant day out... Look forward to next year.Gill, Margaret and Alison Blick
As a first time visitor I enjoyed a wonderful day at the recent show, spent loads (and plenty more in my head)! I shall certainly be back next year and hopefully many to come.Sue Simmonds
It was a wonderful show I had a really great time and am full of inspiration!!! Thank you.Sue Scheller
Just wanted to let you know, my daughter and I had an absolutely fabulous day at Alexandra Palace. What a lovely venue - set in gorgeous surroundings, the main hall was airy and light and there were plenty of seats.
We pottered round the show - attended a workshop - and had a lovely tea in the restaurant. It was great to book this before the event to save queuing - the waiting staff were really sweet! Everything was PERFECT!!!
Many thanks for organising such a wonderful event and roll on the next one!!!!! Well done!Janet Broderick
My students and I really enjoyed our visit to the Knitting and Stitching Show on Friday.Valerie Harris, Highcliffe School
I just spent a wonderful day at The Knitting and Stitching expo in the RDS, Dublin. It just gets better every year. Its great to be able to access such wonderful supplies that are nearly impossible to buy here in Ireland. Thanks so much for all the hard word and effort that clearly goes into setting up and staging this show, keep up the good work!!Anonymous
My husband and I have just returned from Harrogate, What a truly splendid exhibition this year. I am bursting with ideas and cant wait to get sewing. We both enjoyed it so much. All the stall-holders were so friendly, and ready to chat. Roll on next year!Brenda Mann
