The Knitting and Stitching Show is coming back to Dublin, it will be on in the RDS from 30th October to 2nd November, and I for one am pretty excited! I was even more excited when the organisers offered me some free tickets to give away on my blog.
For those who haven't been to the show before its the largest textile and craft event in Ireland, with over 200 retailers selling everything you need for your craft from fabrics to wools, and threads to sewing machines, as well as patterns and books. There will also be loads of workshops where you can pick up new skills, as well as displays from artist and students from the Cork Crawford College of Art and Design. This year the show is also inviting attendees to The Great Irish PicKnit, a social gathering combining knitting and food, where people can share skills and experiences.
I've been the show a couple of times, and have enjoyed myself. The amount of crafting supplies on sale is astonishing, and I've certainly found that the range and price of fabric is really good compared to what is available in Dublin day to day. I'm already planning a trip to the show with my two friends from work who I am teaching to knit and sew.
Anyway, back to the really interesting bit - how do you get your hands on the free tickets?
Well, I have three sets of two tickets to give away. The tickets are only valid on Thursday 30th October, Friday 31st October and Sunday 2nd November.
To get your hands on a pair of these tickets you just need to leave a comment on this post, telling me why you want to go to the show. (Don't forget to leave an email address so I can contact you if you win). All comments posted before 5pm on Thursday 23rd October will be entered into a random draw and I'll announce the winner on Friday 24th and get the tickets to you.
Good luck everyone...
