Spring Sewing School

Brand New for 2019 we have launched the Spring Sewing School. Join us for a full day and half day dressmaking courses taught by world renowned dress-making tutors.
Classes will be available to book soon.

The Prosecco Bar

New this year join us in the prosecco lounge for a glass of fizz  to sip on whilst you stitch away on your next craft project.
You are welcome to bring your own materials into the lounge to work on an existing project, there will also be opportunities to learn something new with experts in knitting, crochet and embroidery on hand.

The Upcycling Challenge

The fashion industry has been known to be a culprit in today's wasteful society. To highlight the importance of sustainability in fashion we are launching an upcycling challenge at the show. Join us for our very first dress-making competition at the show where we are asking you to upcycle your old clothes and household waste into a brand new outfit.
There will also be a bag for life contest and upcycling workshops and demos on offer.

 

What people say

My friend and I attended and although we walked around all the exhibits - we just wanted to do it all again. What a brilliant show. Thank you.
An event to look forward to! Flew over from Sweden with an empty suitcase and returned home with a TON of wonderful fabrics and other supplies. Go if you have the chance!
Gets better and better every year, both me and my mum loved it and look forward to coming back each year. Thoroughly well done.
Went to Olympia in March and Ally Pally in October, loved both. Both very well organised with lots to see and buy. Next time I'll go on the day when it stays open for later as, even though I was there early, I was still there by the time it closed!
I found it to be a lovely balance between specialist supplies for the experienced and kit basics for those just giving it a go. It was very inspiring to see a selection of finished items from the expert crafters, perhaps one day I will create something half as good!
Had a fantastic day on Friday at Olympia, meeting up with my friends from Essex & myself travelling from South Wales. Purchased some gorgeous yarns and patterns - now looking forward to Ally Pally!
