It seems incredible that it is almost two years since we were facing the first lockdown and desperately hoping we would manage to squeeze in exhibiting at the Stitch Festival for the first time. Now we are back preparing for the new show. It will be wonderful to be able to see everyone again and to be inspired by the textile galleries and perhaps stock up on some fabrics, yarns and haberdashery for the coming year.
The organisers have worked so hard to bring you a Covid safe show. The new, improved layout features wider aisles, additional seating, caps on visitor numbers, staggered entry times and plenty of space for social distancing.
We are in full preparation, making up plenty of new designs into kits, restocking firm favourites and sourcing some beautiful haberdashery.
As a valued friend of Ann’s Orchard we would love to see you again and we are fortunate to have two pairs of tickets to give away. To get you in the stitching mood we are also offering a pair of mini beadwork kits or a chunky cross stitch.
The tickets are valid for use on Thursday 3rd to 6th March 2022
The tickets are fully complimentary for use, after 11am, on Sunday 6th March but carry a surcharge of £6 each for the other days of the show. Winners will be sent information to register their e-ticket via email and I will pop your needlework kits in the post.
For a chance to win simply drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org Or head over to my Instagram or Facebook pages and leave a note – tag a friend and both names will go in the draw.
The competition closes at midnight on Monday 14th February 2022. Two winners will be drawn at random on Tuesday 15th February 2022
It should be a fantastic day out, plenty of inspiration and opportunity to stock up on projects and haberdashery for the coming year.
If you are visiting we would love to see you, give us a wave at the far end of the main hall on H94
Hoorah, it is that time of year again when I am in full swing getting ready for the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate – the end of the show always coincides with my annual trip to the dentist and then the start of the Christmas preparations.

Please drop me a line, either in the comments box below or email email@example.com by Friday 8th November if you would like to be included in the prize draw on Saturday 9th November.

On such a frosty morning it seems quite strange to be thinking ahead to spring, slightly warmer weather, longer days and a little sunshine…but I have tickets to give away for the Spring Knitting and Stitching Show at Olympia and fingers crossed we will not be snowed in this year!
To get you in the stitching mood we are also offering a pair of mini beadwork kits. Alternatively, you may like a chunky cross stitch, a beaded parrot or woodpecker or a more traditional cross stitch or biscornu.
The tickets are valid for use on Thursday 28th February, Friday 1st or Sunday 3rd March 2019.
The competition closes at midnight on Friday 25th January 2019

The start of the new school year heralds preparation for the autumn craft shows. My biggest show of the year, Knitting & Stitching, Alexandra Palace is just over a month away and I’m already getting butterflies!!! I have plenty of new cross stitch kits but I still have to write the instructions and design the packaging – fingers crossed it will be, ‘alright on the night.’

If you would like to be included in the draw just leave me a note in the comments section, drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment on our Facebook or Instagram page.

Horrah, we have some winners for the Knitting and Stitching Show tickets, many congratulations to Trudy, Linda and Susanna. Please contact me to ket me know which minibeadwork, chunky cross stitch or new woodpecker kit you would like and I will pop everything in the post. Have a fantastic day out and please give us a wave at A42.
In the meantime, please keep an eye open for the Sewing for Please at NEC tickets I will be giving away in the coming week. It is a new show for me so I am excited at the thought of seeing both familiar faces as well as meeting a whole new audience.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it must have been playing on my mind as I started scribbling and then stitching roses this week. The design is quite traditional and entirely in cross stitch, not a bead to be seen!!! Fingers crossed it should be ready to bring along to the Spring Knitting and Stitching Show, Olympia, 1st to 4th March 2018.
I really like this show. It is smaller than the autumn offering at Alexandra Palace but there is still the same inspirational work in the textile galleries and it is a great opportunity to stock up on lovely fabrics, yarns and haberdashery for the coming year.
