The Handmade Fair starts tomorrow!


Handmade Fair 2016

OMG! Tomorrow is the start of The Handmade Fair!

It’s going to be great fun with all manner of crafty goodness to be had. Whether it’s dozens of amazing artisan sellers or one of many, many workshops, you’re guaranteed to have a good day out.

But what are you up to, Mr X?” I hear you ask. A very good question!

Booby cross stitch with DMC

Each day I’m running a Boobalicious Embroidery workshop in association with DMC and the Pink Ribbon Foundation, where you’ll learn how to cross stitch and be encouraging to stitch your favourite name for your boobs! Find out about these workshops at the Handmade Fair site!

At 10.15 each day I’ll be at the DMC stand, where you’ll get to use DMC Custom By Me stick on soluble interfacing to guide you in personalising plain white t-shirts. You place it where you want, stitch over it and then run it under warm water to dissolve it – it’s the nuts!

And at 4.15 each day I’ll be back with DMC where we’ll be getting busy all over tote bags to give them a new look!

And if that wasn’t enough, on the Sunday he’s going to be craft-battling it out with Momtaz Begum-Hossain from the Make Escape, on the main stage in a Mollie Makes Mashup! That is going to be epic!

As well as Mr X Stitch being all of the place, in the Shopping Villages you’ll be able to find Floss & Mischief, Hannah Bass and Jenny Henry Designs, all of whom are heartily recommended!

If you’ve not bought your ticket yet, there’s still time and the good news is that you can save 15% off on tickets when you book online at quoting promo code: EXPERT by 15th September 2016. The offer applies to Entry Only, Entry + Super Theatre and Full Experience.

It’s a good show with plenty of things to spend your money on, so get tickets while you still can and have a great time!
