Stitch Fest 2021

Stitchfest 3

Event Date:

From 6th November

Until 7th November


So much to see, do and buy at this year’s show, including felting, crochet, knitting, spinning and dyeing workshops, lots of lovely exhibitors selling everything you need for your yarn and fibre crafts, fleece sale and café. We are in our new venue too at Newton Abbot racecourse; plenty of space and all on one site with ample free parking.

Stitch Fest launched 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 2020 would have been our fifth show and was expected to see another exciting growth step with the show moving to the fantastic venue at Newton Abbot Racecourse where it was to be 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.

Come and join us for a fun weekend of workshops, talks and yarn-related happiness – and stock up on some really gorgeous yarns, fibre and accessories to take home!  BOOK TICKETS HERE
