My Crafty Adventure at the Sewing for Pleasure, Fashion Embroidery and Stitch and Hobby Crafts Shows at the NEC

I can't believe the Sewing for Pleasure, Fashion Embroidery and Stitch and Hobby Crafts shows have come and gone so quickly!

I've had an amazing weekend at the show, browsing stands and products, finding out about the latest craft trends, chatting to crafters, taking part in workshops and catching up with friends. I didn't want it to end. So I've decided it's not going to.

ICHF put on great events and it's fab to be in the thick of it; discovering new products and companies, stocking up your craft stash with lots of great bargains, learning new techniques and being completely inspired. What is also great is being able to take all of the inspiration and ideas and the knowledge of where to find your products and using that back home in your own crafty world till the next show you go to! Admittedly the buzz is addictive and you get some GREAT show only deals. My aim is to keep the buzz going between events! 

In my pursuit of craftiness, I'll tell you all about some of the lovely exhibitors I met, some of the products I've tried and some of the crafts I've been inspired by.

Here's a sneak peak…
