We're getting ready for the Knitting and Stitching Show in Edinburgh from 28 April 21 May. The Knitting and Stitching Show has travelled round the UK for many years, but this is the first time it has come to Scotland.
The UK's biggest craft demonstration and product market is set to take Scotland by storm and will be well worth travelling for. Anyone who enjoys knitting, crochet, fabric crafts and sewing will find lots to see and do.
From sewing demonstrations and classes run by the McCall Pattern company to wooly lollipop making at the Yarny Wonderland with Toft Luxury British Knitting, the show promises to be lots of fun and educational.
Among the many attractions there will also be a " Creative Living Theatre" with demonstrations on how to create or adapt knitting patterns to make your knitted garments fit. As we are all about "a good fit" we can recommend that as an essential knitting demo.
Other demos include help with tricky sewing techniques, free motion embroidery, making a beach bag with felting detail, plus there will be demonstrations by top craftspeople - from weaving, knitting and crochet through to spinning, dyeing and embroidery it’s a chance for everyone, from complete beginners through to more experienced textile enthusiasts, to learn from an expert as they work.
The Wooly Witch will be there too, with lots of lovely knitting kits for scarves, socks, slippers, bootees. You'll find us on Stand G4. See you there!
