Our chosen charity for the 2019 show is Knit for Peace, donations of any knitted or crocheted items or yarn will be gratefully received on the day. 

Enjoy a luxurious and inspirational day out, with luscious hand dyed yarns, beautiful handmade wool and felt items, unique knit and crochet kits, a wide selection of accessories from buttons to crochet hooks for sale, demonstrations of spinning, weaving, rag-rugging and Big Knitting plus a selection of craft workshops.

Entry tickets are also available to purchase in advance from Waltham Abbey Tourist Information Centre on Highbridge Street.

There will be 9 workshops, which are only available to book online, at £15 each for 90 mins from beginners to intermediate level – full details of 2019 show workshops available on our website. Any remaining places will be sold on a first come first served basis on the day of the show.  However, we recommend booking workshops in advance to avoid disappointment as most sell out.
