Dizzy and Creative loose at London Olympia Knitting Stitching Show

Greetings to all our Dizzy and Creative readers and followers. We have just returned from our fabulous launch at the Knitting and Stitching Show at London Olympia 2016.

Dizzy & Creative Embroidery projects
Creative and I have returned happily tired, and bubbling over with excitement as we prepare our next collection.

We met so many lovely people, from established stitchers to young textile students who gave us encouraging positive feedback about our current sewing projects.

Creative and I had the opportunity to sneak away from our stand, thanks to Sam, who arrived armed with food supplies and lovely chocolatey treats to sustain us. 

We met talented Knitters and Stitchers with a variety of wonderful skills and products, so over the coming weeks follow us and we will tell you about them and share their details with you.

Being an extravagant pair, we held a special prize draw to win one of our sewing projects and Nicki from Gosport, was the lucky winner!  Congratulations Nicki, please send a photo of your finished Bird panel embroidery and we will picture into our new customer gallery that is coming to the Orchard Learning Studios website soon.!  ( don’t worry we won’t set a deadline!).

Bird's eye view of the show
Carol and Jay, under the illusion that they are our carers, perched us (Dizzy and Creative Dolls) up onto a shelf, thinking it would keep us out of mischief ! We had a birds eye-view of the show and many admirers, who couldn’t resist buying our pattern, and have promised to send us pictures for our picture gallery. We would love to meet them, maybe at another show?

Peter Lanyon Furniture
We would like to thank Peter Lanyon Furniture, for providing us with an exquisite stool to display our cushion, both were greatly admired. Peter, offers courses and workshops across Devon and Cornwall, which would make an ideal gift or a holiday retreat for inspiring furniture makers. Contact Peter for details at
