The Stitches & Craft Show

I started writing a list of all the things that I wanted to say about the S&C Show because I didn't want to leave anything out. Let's face it, I am going to leave stuff out.... I wish I had taken more photos. Especially of all the lovely people I met. I will see most of them again at the Sew It Together weekend, so I guess it is okay.

I travelled to the S&C show by train and arrived at around 10am. After a bit of a look around downstairs, I managed to work out how to get upstairs to the incubator section, which is where I spent most of my time at the show.

I managed to catch up with Carolyn at the Show, and also met a new friend Gyspy

I met Jodie and purchased one of her gorgeous Pocket-Bot kits. I later went to see Jodie's talk about blogging, which was the highlight of my day.

I said hi to Sandra at the Pepperberry & Co. stand, and purchased some more "Let's Enjoy Britain" fabric, which I have already cut into.

I met the ladies from Ink & Spindle, and purchased some of their beautiful hand-printed fabric.

I said hi to Nikki at the Nicole Mallalieu stand. Nikki introduced me to the other Nikki.

I spent some time at the Sublime Stitching Craft Bar, where I was shown how to backstitch and chain stitch. I also got to take home some thread so that I can finish the little project I started there. I saw the knitting and crocheting craft bar, and if I had more time, I would have loved to make a couple of crocheted flowers - maybe next year?

I also said hi to Nic at Yardage Design. Like everyone else, I cant believe that nobody else thought of making bunting craft panels before - such a clever idea!

I also got to meet the lovely Bec of Beccasaurus!

I enjoyed the show very much, I know I left heaps out, but here are some other blogs about the show.

  1. Thanks for sharing all the Stitches & Craft show goss... looks like you had an amazing time. YAY!

  2. Ooh ooh - if I'd not ducked away from behind the craft bar, you'd have seen apathetichousewife in the frame! It was me that was (helping?) standing behind the bar getting people started with stitching! I remember we had a lovely chat about what fun it is to have a crafty day away from the toddlers :-)
