Upper Street Events has announced a new venue for The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show. In 2020 the four-day event will relocate from Olympia to The Business Design Centre in Islington, London. The move comes as part of a significant investment for the 2019 show which saw a larger event with a fresh look and feel. Highlights included a new Sewing School, an Eco-friendly Dressmaking Competition, a catwalk show, upcycling challenge and curated textile galleries. Visitor numbers have grown by 11 per cent over the last two years.
“Interest in knitting and stitching is growing all the time and The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show has quite simply outgrown Olympia,” says event director Katie Ventresca. “Moving to the Business Design Centre is hugely exciting and will give us a big, beautiful, permanent home in which to expand and enhance the show's content. The additional 1,000 square metres of floor space and abundant natural light will enable us to deliver a richer visitor experience with plenty of potential to grow.”
The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show 2020 will take place from 27th February – 1st March. Go to www.theknittingandstitchingshow.com for details.
