Win tickets to Thread Festival!

&Stitches give aways

Fancy a pair of tickets to an exhibition devoted to all things needlework and fabric?

The good people behind the Thread festival of textiles are offering a pair of tickets to the two-day show, taking place Friday and Saturday 26-27 September at the Farnham Maltings, in Farnham, Surrey. The tickets allow entry to both days of the event.

Returning for the second year, Thread aims to showcase the diversity of textiles, from needlework to dressmaking, quilting to fibre art. The two-day festival includes a marketplace featuring suppliers of hand-dyed embroidery floss, vintage haberdashery supplies, and contemporary kits, fabrics and tools. Professional textile artists will feature alongside needlework designers.

I made this cross-stitch dragonfly from an awesome kit I bought from Floss & Mischief at Thread last year.

Carina reviewed last year’s exhibition here. This year promises to be bigger and better, with the likes of What Delilah Did and Tilly & the Buttons on hand. I’ll be there; fancy meeting up?

More details, including tickets, directions and a list of workshops and talks, can be found at the Thread web site, here.

  1. What a lovely giveaway! My favourite style of needlework currently is goldwork (with some silk thrown in) - love the glitz and the interesting effects from different types of metal thread.

  2. I would love to Thread festival it looks awesome. My favourite needlework is blackwork, although I have never tried it, looks too complicated
