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.
We absolutely love our new venue, so now in November 2023, we are back at Newton Abbot Racecourse for a third colourful woolly weekend of wondrousness for our 7th show.
