The Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show is just around the corner! Here’s a look at some past shows as well as what you can expect this year.
Looking for exciting new craft projects for next year? The Knitting & Stitching Show Harrogate will take place at Harrogate Convention Centre in Northern England from 23rd-26th November 2017.
This unique show is the biggest event for the UK’s textile art, craft and design community and is a great place to get fresh ideas, learn new skills and meet like-minded people. The Harrogate show attracts thousands of visitors from across the North of England and hosts Textile Galleries by world-leading artists and groups.
Highlights this year include:
• Units of Possibility – The Reknit Revolution (supported by Rugby Art Gallery and Museum) by Amy Twigger Holroyd in which the knit designer and maker shares an array of inventive and satisfying techniques to rework the garments in our wardrobes.
• Traces in Cloth by Diana Harrison – a presentation of selected past exhibition projects, together with a new collection of material showing the marks left behind in cloth through carefully controlled use of dye, stitch and print.
• Precious Memories by Jo Beattie – a reflection on memories of people, objects and places, the work is drawn on a sewing machine and developed with other mixed media techniques producing 2D and 3D images.
• The Sewing Machine Project by Studio 21 – an exhibition which explores all aspects of the sewing machine. Each member has produced a comprehensive body of work that reflects their personal interest in this transformational machine.
If the galleries don’t get you inspired, then maybe the The Learning Curve programme will! Top craft tutors host over 160 practical workshops covering every aspect of textile craft, and in The Dressmaking Studio (in association with Vlieseline Freudenberg), sewing experts explain the basics of dressmaking. There are knitting and crochet drop-in sessions from the UK Hand Knitting Association and Craft in Action features demonstrations by accomplished textile crafters. Artists in Action (in association with Art Van Go) presents artists at work as though in their own studio. In the Sew Today Pattern Classroom (in association with The McCall Pattern Company and Sew Today), there will be informal demonstrations on how to make simple pattern adjustments and tips and tricks to demystify pattern instructions. There’s also an unbeatable opportunity to stock up on fabric and other essential supplies, with hundreds of specialist retailers under one roof.
Amongst the hundreds of stalls last year, we found the lovely Sincerely Louise, who sells her adorable patterns on our website. She was getting herself ready for the busy weekend ahead – doesn’t her stand look great?
