It’s been AGGEESSS since my last giveaway hasn’t it – so I’m quickly going to rectify that now! How would you like to win FREE tickets to the The Stitch Festival at the Business Design Centre, London?
You’d love the chance – well awesome! Just keep on reading…
The Stitch Festival, formerly known as The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show, is the ultimate day out for craft lovers. The Stitch Festival champions creativity with hundreds of workshops, demonstrations, fashion exhibitions, textile installations, as well as exhibitors selling specialist craft supplies.
Highlights of this years show include the fabulous TOFT’s exhibition Making Women Who Made History, which marks International Women’s Day. The exhibition is a celebration of inspirational, brave and talented women, all made in amigurumi. TOFT launched its first design, Emmeline Pankhurst, on IWD in March 2020. I love TOFT yarn and characters so I bet that’s going to be awesome! And there are going to be over 100 other specialist retailers who will be selling yarn, crochet equipment and craft supplies…swoon right!
Although the The Stitch Festival showcases all stitch crafts like sewing, knitting, if you are just there for the crochet there are a range of crochet workshops which include:
- Tapestry Crochet: Flower Power Coaster / Diana Bensted
- Mosaic Crochet / Diana Bensted
- Crochet an Amigurumi Easter Egg / Diana Bensted
- Beginners’ Crochet / Debbie Harris
- Crochet your own Perfect Sock / Diana Bensted
- Freeform Crochet Scumble / Diana Bensted
- Crochet a Granny Square Cushion Cover / Debbie Harris
- Make a Mini Crochet Shawl / Diana Bensted
- Crochet a Spring Inspired Pen/Pencil Holder / Eleonora Cugin
Excitingly this year they also have The Stitch Festival Dressmaking competition is open to all contemporary dressmakers who want the opportunity to share their creations. And it’s not just sewing there is a crochet / knitwear outfit category sponsored by Stylecraft. Basically it could be a chunky knit jumper or a fine knit cardigan, a dress, a scarf or other accessories. Anything goes, but you haven’t long, the entry form with photos must be submitted online by Midday on Friday 11th February.
Although I can’t make it to this particular show, I’ve enjoyed the visits to them in the past. If you fancy a read about those experiences you can read about them here and here.

Oh my goodness I would love to go to that show – I have recently moved back to the UK and this is something I could do with my Mum after being apart for 20 years it would be a great day of crafting together
Oh that sounds perfectly lovely, I went the last time with my mum and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves x
I didn’t know it had changed name so thanks so much for sharing that vital piece of info! Me and my Sister always love to go to the Harrogate show for a day out together and we said we’d love to try the London one to see other exhibitors! Would absolutely love to win these tickets for us both!
Ooo I’ve never tried the Harrogate Show, it’s on the list though!
I’ve never been! Only just found out about it – would love a day out with fellow crazy crafters. A grand day out to add to my stash… as if you ever need a reason… 😅😁
There’s never not a good reason to add to the stash 😆
The Stitch Festival is the perfect show in my opinion. It’s not too big, it’s welcoming and friendly and it’s great to meet all the lovely people selling their knitting, sewing and craft supplies. Full of inspiration too – it’s just the best day out.
Completely agree! I’ve always enjoyed the shows in the past 😊
I’d love to go this year as I haven’t been out and about in so long. I’ve recently taken up sewing as well, so this would be ideal to stock up on things.
Ooo yes, it’s a great resource for so many crafts!
I just can’t get enough of all the wonderful methods of knitting and crochet. So much to learn and improve. This show would be fantastic to go see the amazing crafts out there and the community it has produced 🤗
Completely agree, these sorts of shows are always fantastic showcases of what’s out there!
Oh how lovely! To be allowed to go to shows! To mingle with like minded people and to be immersed in “pretty things”. It would just be total joy to be able to go. Fingers crossed! ❤️
It’s so nice that these shows are coming back, they’ve definitely been missed!
I have loved the show for years before the move to the Design Centre, it is a fabulous place for inspiration in my work but also very informative on other crafts one might like to try.
I agree, these sorts of shows are such wonderful sources of inspiration aren’t they 🙂
What a treat it would be to go this show. I would surprise my friend Jackie with the complimentary tickets 😊🪡🧵🧶
That sounds like it would be a wonderful surprise!
I would love to go to the show, I’ve recently started crocheting and would love to learn new skills, meet other people who enjoy the same as me.
Thankyou so much for the opportunity. Good luck to everyone
These sorts of shows can be such wonderful sources of inspiration 🙂
I love going to these shows, so much nicer being able to see the real colours, match them a up and feel all the different textures. They are a stitchers dream
