If you enjoy making things, you’ll be pleased to know that the popular Stitch and Creative Craft Show is returning to Manchester Central (formally known as the G-Mex) on 29 – 31 August 2008. It’s open on Friday and Saturday from 10am – 5pm, and on Sunday from 10am – 4pm. Full-price entry is £7 or £5 advance, and it is £6 or £4 advance for concessions.
The Stitch and Creative Crafts Show is one of the UK’s premiere touring crafting events, which attracts thousands of visitors to a number of towns and cities nationwide. The show provides its many exhibitors with an excellent showcase to demonstrate their latest products, as well as some of their old favourites. It goes without saying that many products are available to buy at the event, so you’ll be able to pick up all of your crafty needs under one roof.
As well as browsing a range of stalls, you’ll be able to catch some great live craft demonstrations at the Stitch and Creative Craft Show. The programme for this year’s event has yet to be announced, although it is thought that it will contain a number of knitting, card making, and patchwork demonstrations.
The show aims to cater to a wide audience, so it encompasses a wide range of crafts, including stamping, beading, painting, dressmaking, embroidery, knitting, patchwork, tapestry, paper craft, cross stitch, sewing, quilting, card making, decoupage, stitch craft, crochet, and a number of others. Whatever you like to make, we’re sure that you’ll find the Stitch and Creative Craft Show a fulfilling one.
Manchester Central has been home to the Stitch and Creative Craft Show for over 10 years, and the venue is perfect for the event. The Manchester Central conference is handily situated in Manchester city centre, and has secure on-site parking, disabled access, and a number of top restaurants and bars. You’ll find plenty of hotels nearby too, so why not stay for the whole weekend?
Trident Exhibitions acquired the Stitch and Creative Craft Show last year from Nationwide Exhibitions. Since the takeover, the show has got bigger than ever and now visits far more towns and cities. Some of the towns and cities visited by the Stitch and Creative Craft Show are Esher, Shepton Mallet, Cheltenham, London, Belfast and Edinburgh.
