Knitting and Stitching Show

Hooked on the craft

 

Kicking off on October 30th, the Knitting and Stitching Show at the RDS, Dublin is a place where old-school traditionalists cross needles with younger talent.

All are hooked on the craft with a firm celebrity following that includes model Cara Delevingne, songbird Lily Allen and movie star Ryan Gosling.

The four-day event includes an exhibition, Entwined Memories, showcasing a piece by textile artist Breda McNelis in which she recreates a childhood family photo, a snap taken on a Sunday drive to Slane.

It features a map with arterial roads stitched in red, under a photo of her and her two brothers as they are now. See theknittingandstitchingshow.com/dublin/ Alanna Gallagher
