The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show comes to Olympia London from Thursday 1 March till Sunday 4 March.

Every year, the Spring show attracts thousands of crafters - and this year you could join them for free as we have ten pairs of tickets to be won.

The show, the UK’s biggest textile art, craft and design event is the place to be for anyone keen to start an exciting textile craft project, learn a new skill or buy their first sewing machine.

From embroidery to dressmaking, needle felting to crochet, there are over 200 workshops and free demonstrations hosted by expert tutors, covering every textile craft imaginable.

Whether you’re a complete beginner, an expert seamstress or somewhere in between, there is something for everyone, and with nine workshop classrooms, it’s the biggest Spring show programme ever. Workshops are bookable in advance on the show website from mid-December. Prices start at £15 for one hour, including all materials needed. Places sell out quickly so early booking is recommended.

Items available at Spring Knitting and Stitching Show

If craft shopping is your bag, you’ll find plenty of opportunity to indulge in a little retail therapy with more than 150 specialist retailers under one roof. From yarn and fabric, buttons and beads to the latest sewing machines and gadgets, we guarantee you won’t go home empty-handed.

Galleries by leading textile artists, graduates and groups are sure to inspire, with exhibitions by Kate Whitehead (Not From The Stork), Anne Kelly (Folk Tales), Dionne Swift and her students from around the world (Collective Stitches), City Lit (Making), The Quilters Guild (Commemorating World War 1) and SAQA (Concrete & Grassland).

Contemporary cross stitch kingpin, Mr X Stitch (Jamie Chalmers) will be hosting The Mr X Stitch Guide to Cross Stitch, featuring new work by artists pushing the boundaries of the genre, plus cross stitch and canvas work from the Royal School of Needlework archives.
