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.

Important Ticket Information – Covid-19

We’re looking forward to welcoming visitors The Stitch Festival in February for what promises to be a great event. That said, our number one priority is to ensure we protect the health and wellbeing of our visitors and exhibitors, and we will closely follow the government and their medical advisers’ recommendations to ensure we do this.

If the show is unable to go ahead we will issue a refund for all tickets and workshops booked via See Tickets, (if you booked through a third party please contact them directly). We won’t take risks with your safety and we will do as the Government advises.
