New trade show - The Knit Show

Posted by Rachel Westall on 26 May 2022

UK Hand Knitting has announced a new trade show, The Knit Show, which will be held at The Pavilions of Harrogate on the 3rd and 4th of September, 2022. Even before Covid, exhibitions had become a little formulaic, less inspiring than they should have been and held in venues that lack personality and cost the earth. The members at UK Hand Knitting feel it is time to change things with an event that will not be your normal show, but something significant to inspire, motivate and most of all enjoy.

The Knit Show logo As well as UK Hand Knitting members the show will also feature specially selected suppliers to bring a really exciting range of brands together for yarn shops to see. These will include gift companies, fabric suppliers, along with specialised yarn brands. In addition, there will be demonstrations and workshops aimed specifically at yarn shops to help them develop their businesses.

Shops with a premium listing on the UK Hand Knitting website, are being invited to a gala dinner with complimentary evening meal and entertainment, paid for by UK Hand Knitting. A great opportunity to meet up with other retailers and network.

William Burgess, Chairman of UK Hand Knitting said: "We have all been affected by the last two years and life is now about creating a real event that mixes work with pleasure. It is in all our interests that our amazing industry grows, we support you, our independent retail customer so we look forward to meeting you at the show." Shops that are interested in attending the show can sign up here. For a premium listing on the UK Hand Knitting site follow this link.
