Stitch & Craft 2011
The best stitch, craft and knitting show in Spring
We were delighted with both a successful and hugely enjoyable Stitch & Craft show at Olympia this year. We are also very excited to announce that we had an increase in visitors on 2010 by 13%!
Stitch & Craft is a unique exhibition in that it brings in exhibitors and artists from all points of the crafty globe. Divided into different sections featuring knitting, stitching and papercraft there certainly was something for everyone at Stitch & Craft.
Once again, the Demonstration Theatres proved to be exceptionally popular, with lots of you attending the free demonstrations hosted by QVC's Dawn Bibby and docrafts Clare Curd and Phill Martin.
We were especially overwhelmed by the genorosity of our visitors with our Help for Heroes fundraising drive. Those of you that attended the show may have noticed the stand and how busy it was over the four days. Thanks to the genoristy of our visitors, we managed to raise over £4,000 for this excellent charity.
We would also like to express our congratulations to Elizabeth Rayment of Guildford in Surrey who was the winner of our Picture Me competition. Run in conjunction with docrafts and The Foundling Museum, Elizabeth won a fantastic selection of crafty goodies from docrafts!
In addition to this, hundreds
of exhibitors had their stands stocked with the best stitch and craft
supplies; old favourites as well as new designs and products!
We are already in the planning stages for Stitch & Craft 2012 where we have lots of new and exciting things palnned. We hope to see as many of you at Olympia as possible.
Stitch & Craft 2012 takes place between the 15th-18th of March 2012.
Here are some testimonials from visitors who attended the show in 2011:
'Many thanks to you and your staff for planning and organising such a wonderful show at Olympia. Having attended for many years I feel that this one was the best ever.
Well done to all concerened'
'I write after visiting the show yesterday.
As a senior I was delighted to make use of the Live Theatres and also the various stands (as well as the Live Theatres) that offered a 'hands on' opportunity to try the various items available. This really made touring the exhibition much more vital than just looking - more of these please'
