The Knitting and Stitching show, Alexandra Palace

Yesterday was my trip to the Knitting and Stitching show, Alexandra Palace, London with my Mum.

This is the upholstered bus stop outside Alexandra Palace - it was such a lovely greeting to the show!
Inside it just got more exciting with textile artists displaying their work and hundreds of stands selling really well priced bits and pieces for your knitting and stitching projects. There were things for beginners and the more advanced in every sector of textiles.
I have never seen so many women in one building before, it really was amazing.

If you visiting the Knitting and Stitching show this weekend...

There really is no point queueing for the ladies, we used the men's as there were none about - but perhaps get someone to keep guard on the door just in case!

Make sure you take lip balm and eye drops if you have them. The air conditioning is really harsh, it is hot inside and very drying. The stall holders were having the same trouble so I don't think it was just us.

It's best to either take a pack lunch that you can eat outside in the inside picnic area or book in the tea rooms if you are splashing out. The breakfast served until 11.30am is only £5.00 per person - it is better to do this and sit in a nice surrounding away from the hustle and bustle than get tea inside the exhibition.

If you need some fresh air go outside and into the Phoenix bar for a drink - I think they do food to but not sure what.
Have fun,
