The Stitches & Craft Show joined the Expertise Events show calendar in 2013 and was an immediate success. Currently, there are six shows held in Australia and New Zealand throughout the year. Australian exhibitions take place in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Newcastle, and Melbourne, while the only show in New Zealand is held in Auckland.
The Stitches & Craft Show is designed for everyone who loves all things handmade. No matter whether you create such things or just want to buy them, you will surely enjoy the exhibition because it offers a wide range of activities for all kinds of visitors.
The Stitches & Craft Show is a three- or four-day event (depending on the city), so there’s enough time to see and try everything. These shows attract both first time visitors and devotees to this kind of event. Avid crafters and beginners looking to pick up a new hobby come here to get some great tips and find the crafty supplies they need.
The program of the show includes free seminar-style craft workshops, make & take sessions (hands-on classes with kits), free practical demonstrations by guests artists, and other activities for everyone who wants to learn how to do nice things with their own hands. Thanks to the show’s experts, you get the chance to learn new techniques and discover talents you didn’t know you had.
If you’re not a fan of making craft products yourself but like to buy them, you absolutely need to visit the show’s market where designers and crafters sell their handmade products. And if you’re a crafter, you can buy high-quality fabrics, threads, pattern and supplies provided by a variety of vendors.
Besides, the show offers inspiring exhibitions, displays and installations that showcase the work of the most talented crafters from different countries, fashion parades, stage shows, and more. Although the programs of all Stitches & Craft Shows are structured similarly, every city offers a unique experience.
