Royal School of Needlework at The Knitting & Stitching Show

Visit us at stand TGQ1 and at our dedicated Future Tutor stand TGF13

From 7 to 11 October the RSN returns to Alexandra Palace for The Knitting & Stitching Show. 2015 will see us exhibit for our 20th year at the celebrated craft and textiles show.

This year in addition to our main stand we will have a second space dedicated to our Future Tutors programme, featuring work by the first alumni from the course Becky Quine and Deborah Wilding.

In addition to our presence in the exhibition hall and our popular 'Learning Curve' workshops RSN Chief Executive, Dr Susan Kay-Williams, will host keynote lectures at the show entitled ‘Embellishing Fashion’ and ‘With Just a Needle and Thread - 2015’ - which features a range of new and inspiring pieces.
