thread... a festival of textiles

festivals and events

a festival for sewists & fabric lovers

Our annual sewing festival is a fun, sociable day out, where you can meet fellow textile enthusiasts.

Learn from the experts, try new techniques and enjoy a varied programme of workshops for all. Browse the curated marketplace for artisan fabrics and haberdashery to purchase for your own textile projects or buy unique handcrafted work from artists and makers. Exhibitors include textile producers, yarn purveyors, textile artists and makers.

We look forward to welcoming you to next year's thread festival on Fri 13 & Sat 14 June 2025.

Don’t forget to follow @farnhammaltingscraft on Instagram to keep up to date with news on the festival as it's announced.
