So sew

There’s something incredibly gratifying about sewing, knitting, cross stitch, dressmaking, and the like. The tactile nature of using your hands when so much of our lives exist in the digital world. The delight in letting you imagination reign as your play with creativity. The satisfaction of following a pattern with care and precision. Spending hours on a swishing array of fabrics and textures. The opportunity to make something functional or full of emotion. And the delight in turning a flat piece of fabric into something three dimensional and beautiful.

There’s also a hell of a lot of frustration – what to make, which fabric to choose, how can wools be so different, why are there multiple different needles, what is that proddy thing and for god sake why won’t this bloody sewing machine just sew?!

But that’s all part of the fun! At Craft Heaven: The Stitching, Sewing & Hobbycrafts Show they hope to inspire and inform with a whole host of demonstrations, workshops, stalls, experts and events to get you started or keep you going in the world of making. Running from Thursday 7th – Saturday 9th April, tickets are only £10 in advance, and available here.
