The Stitching, Sewing & Hobbycrafts Show, 20-22 April 2017

I have been to The Stitching, Sewing & Hobbycrafts Show at London’s Excel today. Its the place to discover ideas, inspiration and craft supplies. There were some wonderful exhibits too!

My first stop was at the stall of M Rosenberg & Son which is my favourite fabric supplier. It is a small family run business with fabulous fabrics and a friendly service. They have an amazing range of denims and this has become my indulgence – watch this space!

A Cardigan for Cardigan designed by Lisa Hellier in celebration of the 900 year anniversary of Cardigan. Depicting the town’s heritage and created by people from all walks of life over one year.

Costume collection (1920s and 1930s era) from the film, The King’s Speech, worn by Colin Firth as King George and Helen Bonham Carter as the Queen Mother.

A couple of lovely quilts

There are also other exhibits, craft demonstrations and workshops. Its a crafter’s delight. Catch it while you can!

    I do love the tapestries. My church has a huge one like these with our patron saint depicted. I believe the children get involved in stitching a little patch or two so they feel a huge sense of ownership of the whole project too.
