Three Things; Spotlight – Day Trip Saturday

Knitting and Stitching Show day trip

We still have six spaces left on our minibus trip to the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show this Saturday the 22nd November. You can book your place on the coach and discounted ticket to the show by visiting our shop here.

Our coach will leave the Wirral Country Park here at Thurstaston on the Wirral (where there is ample free parking to leave your car all day should you wish) just before 9am. The two hour journey will see us arrive in Harrogate at about 11am ready for a day of inspiration and shopping at the show.

The Knitting and Stitching Show is a touring show which is also held in London and Dublin. Aside from the great shopping opportunities Sue and Laura most look forward to the Galleries. The galleries are packed with amazing textile artists of all varieties.

Laura is especially looking forward to seeing ‘Black Sheep – The darker side of felt’ as one of her felting heroes, Barbara Neal, is exhibiting. Laura loves the antler and horn inspired head gear created by Neal so much that she has had a go at making some of her own!

Sue can’t wait to see the graduate showcase which highlights the best new textile talent. Each year the standard is amazingly high, we don’t know who will be included this year but no doubt we’ll blog about it next week!

After having a full day of browsing, buying and being inspired (with a brief pause for lunch) our minibus will take us back leaving the show at 5pm sharp.

Please do share this post with anyone you may think would be interested in coming. You can book your place online 24 hours a day and pay by card, paypal, bank transfer or there is an option to bring payment with you on the day. We will not be closing bookings until we are full so you can book right until the last minute if needs be, as long as we still have seats left.
