“Tea Flora Tales an ongoing stitched collaboration started its life at the Knitting and Stitching Show 2012, was added to at The European Patchwork Meeting in 2014 and is still growing. The project reflects the need to preserve our wildflowers and related habitat and raises awareness of the work of the charity Plantlife. Contributions posted from all over the world have begun to feature poppies, cornflowers, forget-me-nots, rosemary and other flowers associated with ‘remembrance referencing the ‘peace’ to be found in the landscape and natural world as we approach the centenary of the end of WW1

With the support of the Embroiderers Guild, The Knitting and Stitching Show UK and Nadelwelt Karlsruhe it is fitting that this project will be have its final showing in 2018. The exhibition also marks the publication of Cas Holmes fourth book ‘Textile Landscape’ (Batsford publication) and will include some work represented in the book.”

“Cas was inviting people to join her in making little squares for Tea-Flora-Tales – I like a good square.. I sat down and made one,. ( I can honestly say that 10 minutes was the one serene; calming few moments of the day!)” –  Emma (visitor to show)

 

Cas’s new book ‘Textile Landscape’  has just launched. see the press release here for more information

 

 

Important Ticket Information – Covid-19

We’re looking forward to welcoming visitors The Knitting & Stitching Show in October for what promises to be a great event. That said, our number one priority is to ensure we protect the health and wellbeing of our visitors and exhibitors, and we will closely follow the government and their medical advisers’ recommendations to ensure we do this.

The show will go ahead, unless we’re advised or told to cancel or delay at the request of the UK Government, which we will then do without hesitation. If this is the case we will issue a refund for all tickets and workshops booked via See Tickets, (if you booked through a third party please contact them directly). We won’t take risks with your safety and we will do as the Government advises.
