The final Knitting and Stitching Show of 2010 is heading to the Harrogate International Centre, Yorkshire, on November 25th, with over 300 specialist stalls to browse through, as well as workshops and displays.
It just so happens that Gok Wan will be in Harrogate too, at The Royal Theatre, and has invited all knitters to come and see his catwalk show and Face Off with Brix after the Knitting and Stitching Show on Friday 26 November.
Tickets for Gok’s Fashion Fix are entirely free of charge but are available on a first come, first served basis by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Back at the Knitting and Stitching Show Exhibitions will showcase work by international textile artists Alice Kettle and Jane McKeating Machine Stitch Perspectives, The Julia Caprara Retrospective, the Knitted Victorian Christmas and more.
Highlights will include the Swishing Salon, with craft and dressmaking experts from Craft Guerilla on hand to show you techniques for ‘upcycling’ clothing and for making your own.
Plus you can experience ‘Naked Knitting’ courtesy of the Knitting Noras, a group of alternative knitters from Bolton who have promised all sorts of yarn storming mischief!
