DO YOU sew, embroider, knit or crochet? If so, this is nirvana, with materials including fabrics from 180 specialist suppliers, plus inspiring galleries by leading textile artists and drop-in clinics to sort out those tricky bits such as turning a heel or setting a sleeve. Even if you can’t knit or stitch, come along and maybe dip into more than 200 workshops hosted by experts including Jamie Chalmers, “Mr X Stitch”, who is offering informal cross stitch sessions.
