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!
