Susan Crawford Vintage Knitting at the Clothes Show

For any of you intrepid UK knitters who are venturing out in the snow and ice to The Clothes Show Live, we've a treat for you.

After much persuasion, Susan has decided to take a stand at this year's Clothes Show Live at the NEC in Birmingham. It starts today (3rd Dec) and runs until the 8th of December.

Susan and Gavin will be there exhibiting as Susan Crawford Vintage Knitting in the Sknitch area which is focused on knitting, sewing and craft. This is located in Hall 20, on Stand SK23.

I haven't seen a picture of it yet, but the stand sounds wonderful. Susan will have as many garments from A Stitch in Time 1 & 2 and Vintage Gifts to Knit as is possible. On top of this there will be lots of other garments which she's designed for knitonthenet and other magazines. This really is a great chance to see what the designs look like in the flesh and also to talk to Susan, herself.

She tells us that after the great success of the Vintage Kits that she put together for the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace, The Clothes Show will be the formal launch of the Vintage Knitting Kits collection. Very exciting!

So, if you are visiting the Clothes Show, do come and find Susan (and Gavin) in the Sknitch area on stand SK23 - Susan Crawford Vintage Knitting (and then tell us snowbound knitters all about it in the comments!)

If, like me you're not able to make it, you can visit Susan's lovely new website here: Susan Crawford Vintage Knitting.

Happy Knitting
