Sewing for Pleasure, Fashion Embroidery & Stitch and Hobbycrafts

19-22 March 2015
09.30 – 17.30 (Sun 17.00)

Sewing for Pleasure, Fashion Embroidery & Stitch and Hobbycrafts returns to the NEC, Birmingham from the 19-22 March 2015. This hugely popular show is attended by over 10,000 creative craft enthusiasts over the three show days.  With over 300 exhibitors, a host of experts and inspiring catwalk shows, this event is not to be missed this spring.


ICHF Events is thrilled to be able to offer three shows for the price of one at the NEC. With many fascinating stands, talks, demonstrations and features, Sewing for Pleasure, Fashion Embroidery & Stitch and Hobbycrafts is a haven for anyone with a passion for all things craft.

For those who truly enjoy sewing for pleasure, the aptly named show should be the first port of call. The show offers all the latest supplies, ideas and innovations from the stitching and fashion world. Visitors can find kits, patterns, fabrics, threads and hands-on activities for dressmaking and home styling adventures.

Knitters from across the UK saw their hard work and efforts unveiled in 2014, when the world record was set for the longest knitted chain which measured a staggering one kilometre long. So successful has this project been in passing on knitting skills and linking knitters across the UK, that the UK Hand Knitting Association is now asking everyone to join in and add new rainbow coloured links to help the chain grow even longer. Visitors to the show can sit and take part with likeminded lovers of knitting.

With everything from sewing, knitting and quilting to papercraft, cardmaking and jewellery making, you will find all the latest innovations from the world of creative craft. What’s more, all visitors can enjoy a free programme of Quick & Easy Workshops, Talks and Demonstrations each day of the show.

With three great shows for the price of one, there is something for everyone at Sewing for Pleasure, Fashion Embroidery & Stitch & Hobbycrafts this spring.
