The first ever National Needlecraft Awards took place on Thursday 1st March at the Knitting & Stitching Show in Olympia, London. With nearly 500 entrants across eight categories, attendees at the Knitting & Stitching Show braved the bad weather to recognise the winners. We are overwhelmed by the amount of entries and votes we have received and we would like to thank everyone who entered, voted and attended. We would also like to thank DMC for sponsoring the event and our panel of expert judges.
Congratulations to all our winners! CLICK HERE to view photos from the event. Subscribe to our emails to keep up to date with details on next year's National Needlecraft Awards.
