The Knitting and Stitching Show, at Ally Pally, London.

It's that time of year again and the doors will soon be open at the Great Alexandra Palace, London.
The Knitting and Stitching Show is one of the best textile shows in Europe.

Thursday 11th - Sunday 14th October 2012.

In September, I ran a two day workshop for members of the Guild of Machine Knitters, I had eight lovely ladies come along with their knitting machines to my Studio in Malvern. Where together we knitted "Well Knit by Moonlight" a night time woodland scene. It is knitted in Samazma Style, using my yarn and colour choices, The sculpted forms were wonderfully created by Kenneth Potts ARBS. The workshop was enjoyed by all and you can come and see our beautiful "Well Knit by Moonlight" display at stand RCG11 at Ally Pally.

A massive thank you to the ladies at the Guild of Machine Knitters,  especially the Chaiman,  Liz Holness and Pat Banyard-Smith.
