Stitch Your Style

This year we were pleased to host The Dressmaking Competition and Catwalk show at The Stitch Festival.

We love celebrating the creativity and talent of our lovely visitors and that’s why we gave you the chance to have your work displayed at this year’s show. 
The Entrants had the chance to submit a garment into any of our 3 categories; Eveningwear, Knitwear and Sustainable Wearable Art. 

17 contestants were shortlisted and their garments will be on display at this year’s show. All the finalists took place in the Catwalk show held on Sunday 1st March where the final winners of each category and the visitors choice was announced.

Important Ticket Information – Covid-19

Due to the latest Government rulings in relation to Covid-19, we will be cancelling The Stitch Festival 2021, which was due to take place at the Business Design Centre from 25th – 28th February.

While this is very disappointing for our community of crafters, we are working hard to find lots of digital activity to get involved in until we can come together again.
