The Spring Knitting and Stitching Show at Olympia II

This is the third day of the Stitch and Craft Show 2013. More info on the website.

The show is on from 14th March - 17th March and is aimed at all types of crafters, e.g. knitters, papercrafters, crocheters and needlecrafters.

We'll meet just inside the entrance at 11. I think the show starts at 10 (although I couldn't see the exact times on their website yet) but some may prefer to book workshops when they arrive before meeting up. Then we can wander by ourselves or in small groups until meeting up again at lunchtime or for coffee in the afternoon depending on what those attending want to do. Please let me know if you have any ideas for a meeting place or time for lunch/coffee.

Ticket prices on the door:

Adult (19 and over) - £15.00
Concessions (60 plus / full time students) - £14.00
Child (age 4 to 18) - £6.00.

Advance booking for tickets is cheaper despite a small booking fee and available online. Tickets will be posted within 10 working days of the order or a confirmation email can be shown instead.

    Hi all, went to the show today so thought I'd share some layout tips re meeting etc. The show is on in the building on the far left of Olympia. You go in and then you have take the elevator to the first floor where the show is (one floor only but huge!). So for meeting it might be best to wait after the ticket thingy but before the elevator. There are sofas so at least you can be nice and comfy. Have fun! Marijke

      March 16, 2013

  • Joanne

    I'm sure we'll still be at the planned meeting point by the entrance for a while, so just come there to meet us when you're done. See you there!

    I would have loved to come, but have decided to go on the march to protest against the threatened closure of the Whittington Hospital.
