London Art & Craft Events in March

Wow, can you believe it? Another *pinch and punch* – it’s March already! Last month I shared a round-up of some of the craft and design events coming up in London. I thought I’d continue the tradition, and give a little heads up of some of the cool events coming up this month, so you don’t miss out!

The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show – 3-6 March, London Olympia


Now, I’ve never been to the Knitting & Stitching Show before but I was lucky enough to win tickets to this year’s Spring Show at London Olympia in the @CraftBlogClub #CBCGiveaway.

Established over 20 years ago, the show runs from 3rd – 6th March 2016, and is one of the most highly regarded knitting and craft shows in London. Featuring over 200 crafty exhibitors, and over 200 interactive workshops, the fair is the definitive event for anyone with a love of stitch and crafts.

I’ll be going on the Sunday with my sister (never fear, we’re celebrating Mother’s Day on the Saturday). I’ve left it too late to pre-book the workshops, but you can book on the day. Adults tickets cost £13 p/day, plus extra for workshops ranging from learning to knit, crochet, sew or quilt.
