25 – 28 November 2010, Harrogate International Centre

Twisted Thread's last show of the season takes place in just under two weeks time at Harrogate right in the heart of beautiful Yorkshire.
 
As always, The Knitting & Stitching Show will offer fabulous shopping opportunities with over 300 different specialist exhibitors to buy from. And with an extensive range of workshops lined up there will also the chance to learn many new skills from beginners crochet to felt making or beadwork, all from top teachers.
 
An entire hall will be devoted to gallery exhibitions so there will be plenty to inspire. This year's fantastic line up of international textile artists includes Alice Kettle and Jane McKeating Machine Stitch Perspectives, The Julia Caprara Retrospective plus special lecture, The Quaker Tapestry and the Knitted Victorian Christmas. Very festive in the run up to the season with knitted Father Christmas sipping his knitted glass of sherry! Knitted toys, knitted Christmas tree, knitted fireplace, window and even the curtains are knitted.

Swishing is the thing this season! Come along to the Swishing Salon and exchange good quality clothing (and therefore encourage recycling over waste). A haven of creativity, with craft and dressmaking experts from Craft Guerilla on hand to show you techniques for ‘upcycling’ clothing and for making your own!
 
If that's not enough excitment, Gok Wan will be in town and has taken over The Royal Theatre. His invitation goes out to all K&S visitors to join him and, on Friday, he brings his catwalk and the ultimate Face Off with Brix to Harrogate. Come to The Knitting and Stitching Show, have a great day and then relax for Gok’s Fashion Fix, which starts at 5.00 on Friday 26th November. Tickets for Gok’s Fashion Fix are entirely free of charge but are available on a first come, first served basis by emailing gokmakeover@endemoluk.com
