The Spring Knitting and Stitching Show is coming up fast and I’ve got 5 pairs of tickets to give away!
This is the show held at Olympia in West London every year (the autumn show is held at Alexandra Palace). It’s always a fun day out! Just make sure you come with an empty shopping bag and full wallet… 🤣
The show features, as always, a large craft fair with lots of haberdasheries, fabric shops, pattern companies etc coming together under one roof as well as a ton of workshops if you want to get crafting yourself! This year looks like it’s got a big emphasis on dressmaking (probably because The Great British Sewing Bee is starting in a couple of weeks!) with a whole new Sewing School area. There’s even a dressmaking competition going on – entry date is February 11th so you might want to get moving on that one!
The Fashion and Textile Museum will also be hosting 50 Years of Fabulous, showcasing collection of garments from its forthcoming exhibition celebrating iconic British designer Zandra Rhodes’ 50th anniversary.

Tickets are valid for the Thursday, Friday and Sunday only. Giveaway will be open until midday Sunday 3rd February when I will draw the winners. I’m also sharing this on my Instagram feed so feel free to head over there for a second chance to enter.
If you don’t win and still want to go, the show organisers have offered you guys a little discount off their regular priced tickets. Use the code SELFASSEMBLY19 here. The code gives £2 off advance adult/ £1 off advance concessions, so tickets will be £12 instead of £14/£13 (plus £1.75 fulfilment fee per transaction). This discount is for advanced bookings only and can be redeemed before midnight on Wednesday 27th February.
By the by, with the new push on social media by the Advertising Standards Agency, I’m obliged to say that this is an ad. The Knitting and Stitching show is providing me and 5 lucky readers free tickets in exchange for a post! I don’t make any money from any of the links or the discount code. They’re there for your info only!
