Another giveaway – tickets for the Spring Knitting & Stitching Show, Olympia

Hi folks.  Here’s something else to banish the winter blues – fancy a chance to win a pair of tickets for the Spring Knitting & Stitching Show in Olympia, London, 5th- 8th March?

Well, I have five pairs up for grabs!   (Not valid for the Saturday of the show)

The Show celebrates a whole host of crafts, from knitting, sewing and dressmaking to quilting, crochet, cross stitch and home furnishing. Visitors can shop from over 200 exhibitors, attend a fun-packed workshop and browse outstanding displays of fashion and textiles.

I would love to see  The Knitted Farm Competition in conjunction with the book ‘Knit Your Own Farm’ by Sally Muir and Joanne Osborne. They’ve provided four knitting patterns from the book. Download patterns for a cow, pig, sheep and lamb where you’ll also find the entry form and rules.  Additional farm animals and objects are welcome too and prizes for the most innovative and best executed items will be awarded at the show!  If you are a speedy knitter there’s still chance to enter- follow the link above to submit your entry form by 9th February and you have to get your knits in by 20th February.

Sadly I can’t make it this time around.  I have yet to visit one of these shows, but they sound so full of crafty lovely stuff & stitchery that I bet you need to prepare with an early night, & a bag of snacks to keep the energy levels high.  So I am happy to be helping some of you to have a good time on my behalf 🙂

If you want to win a pair of tickets, leave me a comment by midnight 15th February and I will pick 5 random winners & post on the tickets to them the very next day.  (I guess this really is only for UK residents – sounds obvious !)

***Thank you to everyone who entered, this giveaway is now closed***

    I would LOVE to go to the show. Have been trying to convince one of the ladies I used to work with to skip work on the Friday and come with me.

  12. Carole

    What a fabulous giveaway! I visited the show in Harrogate a few years ago; it was almost overwhelming, so much to see (& buy), lots of creative work to view and workshops to book into. I would love the opportunity to repeat the expereince.

  13. Jane

    I would love to win a pair, thanks for the opportunity! I always end up spending so much at these shows which is why I am umming and ahhing about buying tickets for this one. But if I can save on the ticket price, it makes me less guilty about buying lots of fabric and wool!

  14. Beverley Marsh

    I’ve just started sewing so I would love to win tickets to this show as I have never been before. It would be great for me to meet other sewing enthusiasts and book onto some workshops. I’m sure I would come away totally inspired with some fantastic ideas for new projects. Fabulous giveaway!

    I am NOT a UK resident but: I am going to be in London that very week! I’m so excited that this is happening and I am really happy to have a chance to win a pair of tickets!

    SPRING KNIT AND STITCH – I absolutely LOVE the Spring Knitting and Stitching Show and would not miss it for anything. The range of ideas are brilliant but you absolutely have to buy your tickets in advance, the queues last time for tickets went on for ages and ages. So, if I won a pair of tickets for my friend and myself that would be fantastic.

  18. Trish

    oh! That’s over my birthday, so I really must leave a comment mustn’t I, and say how much I always enjoy your posts. Though the funniest still has to be the Burda pleated trousers!

  19. Jaimie

    I would love to win tickets to the knitting and stitching show this year at Olympia. It’s amazing to learn about so many new things and to develop on the knitting & crochet skills I already have. Thanks for the chance to win tickets.

  20. Catrin

    I would love to go, although I probably shouldn’t. I always manage to spend far too much at shows, I find myself transported to a land far far away from the reality of my bank balance! On the positive side though, they always inspire me to finish WIPs / UFOs that should have been finished yonks ago! Thanks for the chance to win!

  21. Maisoon Gharbawi

    Hi there, I would so love to win tickets to this show ! I’m a fairly new knitter & completely addicted to it. Simply can’t stop buying beautiful yarns & patterns……
    Thanks, Mais

  22. Jan Smith

    I would just love to win tickets for me and my crafty friend. To visit the show….We love to knit and sew…. So all that wonderful stitchery and yarn would be totally inspiring…. And the money we save on the ticket price would go towards filling our bags with extra crafty goodies!!! Fingers crossed. X

  23. Jamila

    I’d love to take my best friend, Caro as I ‘ve finally convinced her to get a sewing machine and can’t wait to get her as excited about seeing as I am!
