Sharing the joy of sewing

Ommel 2019

Ommel 2019

A festival just for sewists

Ommel 2019 is a sewing festival with a strong communal aspect for all sewists from beginners to professionals. The event combines a fabric and sewing supply market, a three-day sewing retreat, and educational contents such as courses, lectures, and workshops.

The event will take place on the Opinmäki campus in Suurpelto, Espoo.

Ommel 2018’s theme was Finnish design and this second time the theme will be Nordic design. We are inviting all fabric sellers from the Nordic countries and visitors from all over the world to come join us. Besides just fantastic fabric, all kinds of material and notions from threads to sewing machines and magazines will be for sale.

A good selection of just sewing products and activities. Other craft fairs include so many other techniques but here you could concentrate on just sewing.

Entry to our festival is free! Workshops and lectures are also free and you don’t have to sign up for them in advance. The sewing retreat, courses and accommodation in the school are paid, and you can book your place on this site closer to the event.

Ommel 2018 was the first time the festival was organised and 3000 people attended. We received lots of positive feedback which will allow us to make Ommel 2019 even bigger when it comes to sellers, activities and visitors.
