Often people ask me what I would do with my time if I didn’t have a big family of seven to look after. The answer is not really that difficult: I would be a full-blown craftaholic. There are so many wonderful crafts I would love to master and I can spend hours browsing Spotlight, filling up my trolley with beautiful materials that I have no clue how to use.
Whether you are a craft professional or a keen novice like me, if you are looking for a lovely day out you are sure to enjoy a visit to The Stitches and Craft Show. With shows scheduled for five big Australian locations (Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Newcastle and Melbourne) throughout the year, hobbyists across the country are in for a real treat.
From fun workshops and fascinating demonstrations to stunning exhibitions and interactive make-and-take classes, time will fly by as you explore the Stitches & Craft show grounds together with other creative minds. Of course there is also the opportunity to stock up on fabulous gear for your hobby stash (you better bring a large shopping bag) and to meet some amazing artists and watch them show off their talents.
Can’t find a babysitter? Don’t worry, the kids are welcome in the special Kids Corner where they can shake paws with Crafty Cat and try their hand at some colouring in.
Ticket prices start at $9 (children) up to $18 (adults), concession and family tickets are available.
