knitandstitch finalThe Spring Knitting & Stitching Show (5 – 8 March, Olympia, London) is designed to inspire both beginners and professionals at knitting, crochet, sewing, quilting and dressmaking. This market continues to enjoy a huge surge in popularity and the show has seen a 45% increase in visitors last year.

Taking part in the show for the first time is social enterprise FashionCapital. The team from the training and production facility based in North London will present a step-by-step account of the garment life cycle, taking visitors on an informative journey that reveals each stage of garment production from initial idea from through to delivery of finished garments.

For those interested in pursuing a career in fashion, FashionCapital will also host talks and demonstrations on its level 1 Stitching Academy, levels 2, 3 and 4 Fashion and Textiles Apprenticeship programmes and soon to launch qualifications at the Fashion Technology Academy opening in March 2015.

FashionCapital will be joined by the Fashion & Textile Museum, who will be showcasing a selection of designs from their collections giving a taster of the exhibition scheduled at the museum for this coming year.

The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show is a must-attend event for anyone with a passion for textile crafts – from complete beginners, experienced crafters and professional textile artists to those wanting to explore course and career options.

The FashionCapital team on stands E4 and E6 looks forward to seeing you.
