WELCOME TO STITCH FEST!
Stitch Fest's first show took place in November 2016 in Totnes Civic Hall with a hugely successful festival that drew people from all over the UK. Its second, third and fourth years were even better with a fabulous new venue in the Grove School and more classes.
Stitch Fest 2021 saw the show moving to the fantastic venue at Newton Abbot Racecourse where it was all under one roof and as ever, showcasing some of the best independent makers, dyers, spinners and designers in the UK yarn industry along with fabulous workshop and demonstration timetables.
And now for 2022, the Stitch Fest stable has a new baby....Fibre Quest
Placed at the idyllic Fernhill Farm on the top of the Mendip Hills, this new spring show looks specifically at the ecological side of the yarn & fibre industry. Examining the wool and natural fibre industry in relation to regenerative agriculture and helping us to consider how can we make ethical choices in yarn and fibre.
