Watch our tutors take on the UpcylcingChallenge.

In teams of two our tutors will be given an old item of clothing (a T-Shirt, pair of jeans, a shirt) plus a metre of fabric and some trims. The teams will then have 45 minutes to create something new out of their materials.

The audience, will then select their favourite garment. The winning team will walk away with a great sewing prize.

When can you watch it?

The Upcycling Challenge will take place on the Friday on The Stitch Stage.
It is free to attend just turn up and take a seat.

Important 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.

We look forward to seeing you at The Stitch Festival next year from 3rd to 6th March 2022!
