Craft shows are a great way of getting inspired in a craft you already love, learning about new crafts and finding all kinds of great fabrics and notions. There are a couple of big craft shows coming up this March. First there is Stitch and Craft at Olympia in London from the 15 – 18 March. This show covers knitting, cross stitch and papercrafts. As part of the show a miniature knitted village is being created, you can participate by knitting something for the village, patterns are available here. You have until 24 February to submit your entry and until 1st March to get your creations to them. Or you could just go along to the show and enjoy the finished village.
You will also be able to see a special exhibition of over 500 quilts that have been made to celebrate the Olympics.
The second show is on at the NEC in Birmingham, which is easier for most sew make believe members to get to than London. This show is on from 22 – 25 March. This show incorporates Sewing for Pleasure, Hobbycrafts, and Fashion Embroidery and Stitch, click here for more details.
