The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show is back at Olympia from 13th to 16th March. This year’s show includes late opening on Thursday, with a special ticket price for those who can’t be there all day.

The show includes some great workshops, hosts the finals of The National Fashion Textiles Competition for Schools, and has over 200 exhibitors.

Also at the show is the ‘Contemporary Quilt Exhibition’, which features quilts made by members of the Contemporary Quilt specialist group, a part of The Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles.

The quilts on display have all been selected to demonstrate the diversity of styles and techniques used by members of the group, which includes experienced artists and quilters exploring new techniques and materials to turn the traditional quilt into a form of contemporary art.

This show looks like a great day out, and one we’re sorry to be missing. We’d love to know what you thought of it. Share your feedback and pictures on our Facebook page
