Sewing for Pleasure, Fashion & Embroidery and the Creative Craft Show, 25-28 June 2020 update.
As you may have heard in the media, the Event Industry are supporting the Government and the NHS during the Covid-19 pandemic, and we have now received confirmation that The NEC will remain as a field hospital for the foreseeable future.
Because of this Sewing for Pleasure, Fashion and Embroidery and The Creative Craft Show are no longer taking place from the 25 – 28 June 2020.
All ticket holders will again be automatically transferred to our flagship NEC show which runs from the 5 - 8 November 2020. This show is the biggest event in the craft and hobby calendar, and we look forward to finally welcoming you all for some much needed creative and crafting inspiration! Ticket holders will also gain free entry to Simply Christmas and Cake International (the world’s largest sugar craft event).
Our November show will have aisles and aisles of sewing, papercraft, embroidery, mixed media, art, jewellery making, clay (the list is endless). It will play host to the same amount of workshops as at our March show – to suit all levels and interests. Already confirmed is the wonderful Kerri Padmore with her sewing with scraps Christmas workshops, with many more to be announced soon!
We are also excited to be able to bring you the Sew Your Style Competition finalists. Plus leading brands including Crafters Companion, Create and Craft, Hochanda and many, many more.
All show tickets will be automatically transferred over, if you have already booked you do not need to do anything.
If you cannot attend the new dates you have the option to move your ticket to Sewing for Pleasure, Fashion & Embroidery and The Creative Craft Show in 2021 (Thursday 18 – Sunday 21 March 2021). Alternatively you can get a refund. Please email [email protected] with your preference. Please include your order number.
