Last year, I left with so much inspiration for creating so many things – I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed every second!

So what can you expect when visiting The Creative Craft Show?

After having the pleasure of seeing Grans on the Make’s beautiful poppy display last year, they’ll be back with some of the sweetest bees that they’ve been busy knitting and collecting throughout the year.

There are plenty of live art demonstrations to see throughout Thursday and Sunday. The live demos are with Stephen Coates, Matthew Palmer, Alison Board, Rebecca De Mendonca and more!
You can enjoy visiting the stalls of some well-known art brands to try some of their products – you’ll get a chance to ask questions too!

Create and Craft will be there – they’ll have so much to offer including competitions and money off vouchers.
Also, 50 members of Rock Choir will be there singing some festive tunes between 9am and 1pm – you can even join a free 90minute taster session too!

Something that really got me thinking about my crafting projects last year are the workshops that are available at The Creative Craft show. They’re available to book in advance, online. Imagine going to The Creative Craft show, to return home having learnt a whole new crafting skill?! Not only that, but you can also pick up all of the things you’ll need for your new hobby too!

This year I already have plans to pick up some more sewing patterns, as I did last year. I also remember seeing a stall that held block printing demonstrations and sold the materials for it too. As block printing has become a keen hobby of mine lately, I’m after some new inks and Lino to carve my own stamping blocks.

Of course, I won’t be leaving without buying some things to decorate the house ready for Christmas again, too!

You can purchase your tickets for any of the dates mentioned here. Alternatively, you can book yourself some VIP tickets for some additional gifts and benefits! Some of the benefits included in having VIP tickets are: fast track entry, exclusive make and take programme (info can be found here), a Mollie Makes magazine + a free gift and more!
Did I mention that included in your ticket to The Creative Craft Show, you also gain free entry to both the Simply Christmas and the Cake International events (you don’t need to be VIP for this).

There really is so much more to offer at The Creative Craft Show, too. I’m really looking forward to the event and hope to see some of you there!
