Stitch London: city of puddled pavements, story-soaked streets, pigeons, sharp-elbowed commuters, jam-packed double-decker buses, shouty market sellers, bustling black cabs, vinegar-smelling chip shops, pubs packed with pint sippers, herds of camera-clicking tourists and endless rivers of steaming hot tea. Also a city of stitch-savvy knitters.

Totally tired your tea getting tepid? Whether you re just visiting or striving to survive as a city knitter, Stitch London is the place for you. And if you can't knit? Fear not! We'll even show you how to get clicking with your sticks and string. We re nice like that.
