Dublin Fashion Event for the Crafty

September 8, 2009

The Knitting and Stitching Show is on again in Dublin RDS on 29 Oct-01 Nov.

Now, before you stop reading horrified by something so old fashioned and boring as knitting, not to mention stitching, please bear with me for a few more seconds!

Why you should attend:

– there is much more to it than the name suggests – “felt-making, shibori dyeing, jewellery-making, card-making, mixed media…

Beads and Bling, Ireland’s funkiest Bead Store

– You can swap clothes with The Swishing Studio

-Innovative textiles

-Fashion Design students exhibiting their work

and much more…

On a final note, knitting is actually fashionable! Just an example, the organiser of the Fashion Breakthrough, the major event in Irish fashion scene, Lisa Shawgi, is a knitwear designer herself.

Just look at her designs and you will know what I mean…
