Show Features

A Cardigan for Cardigan

In celebration of the 900-year anniversary of Cardigan town, designer Lisa Hellier created a giant cardigan depicting the town’s heritage. People from all walks of life came together to create this truly magical work of art over one year. Not to be missed! Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Learn to Sew Studio

Overcome your fear of using a sewing machine, with our mini-workshops run by Thelma Judge. These workshops are perfect for beginners, or as a refresher for those returning to sewing.

The Living World

‘The Living World’ is the theme for this year’s Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles touring exhibition. These beautiful quilts are based on flora and fauna in the natural world, inspired by the quilter’s local surroundings in the UK, or more exotic places visited whilst traveling abroad.

Ceremonial Kimono Dressing

From the private collection of Japanese expert Jill Clay, we proudly present a stunning collection of beautiful ceremonial kimono and accessories. A must see, for all those inspired by the orient, and wanting to learn more about the enigmatic geisha.

Nation's Fastest Knitter

Joining forces with the UK Hand Knitting (UKHKA) we bring back a much-loved knitting competition! The Nation’s Fastest Knitter continues with its Manchester heat. The UKHKA will also be running regional heats online. Representatives of the Association will be on hand to adjudicate with stopwatches at the ready. Those taking part must knit 100 stitches as quickly as they can.
