Learning Curve at Knitting and Stitching Show
11
Jun '09
The Knitting and Stitching Shows offer an unique opportunity to buy the supplies you need to make your own; to find inspiration from the most creative artists, and to learn from the experts. Why buy new when there's so much pleasure to be had from creating your own? Whether you choose luxury fabrics to make a pair of curtains, knit your own winter scarf or create your own greetings cards, you'll find plenty to keep you occupied whilst saving those precious pennies.

The Knitting and Stitching Shows take place in:
• Alexandra Palace, London: 8th to 11th October
10.00am to 5.30pm (5pm Sun)
• Harrogate International Centre: 19th to 22nd November
10.00am to 5.30pm (5pm Sun)

And you can help save the planet at the same time! The economic boom caused us to become wasteful consumers, and now is the
time to undo the damage. Rather than throw away old clothes, it's time to repair them. Instead of abandoning what's no longer in fashion, freshen it up with alterations and embellishments. To encourage you to do this, we've launched The Swishing Studio (in association with Sewing World Magazine and Brother) at The Knitting and Stitching Shows in London and Harrogate. We invite you to bring clothes you've made or customised to exchange with other sewers in the Swishing Studio. Bring up to 5 garments, and take away the same number. It's as simple as that!

Junky Styling and other young designers will also be customising and recycling donated clothes throughout the show using Brother sewing machines, so if you need inspiration you can watch them at work. It costs £5 to take part, (or £15 to buy clothes without donating any) and all proceeds go to Bliss, the special care baby charity that supports premature and sick babies and their families.

Whatever your skill and interest, The Knitting and Stitching Show will get your creative juices flowing, it'll help you learn to be thrifty and help the environment! Learn a new skill in one of over 100 workshops in the Learning Curve, find inspiration from the galleries of leading textile artists, and choose from over 350 companies selling everything from sewing machines to buttons and beads.
