Charity projects and exhibitions

The submissions to the design competition will be featured at the event and there will also be the regular mix of charity projects and activities to occupy you during your visit - you will be able to spend some of your time knitting and crocheting.

On Friday afternoon you can be entertained by a fashion show from the exhibitors!

On Saturday afternoon we have several fashion shows from some of the best recent knitting graduates. All the fashion shows are free.

If you are running a charity project which involves knitting or crochet please get in touch to find out more about reserving a place at the show.

Entertainment

We want the I Knit Weekender to be a place you can spend time, rather than just money. To this end we will be entertaining you again this year with site/event specific work and other surprises.
