Wow! Twistedthreads have produced a fabulous show for anyone who has a passion for the art of hand crafts and textiles. This show has lots of stall holders with beautiful things for you to buy, covet, adore and make.Their are fabulous textile displays and workshops to inspire you.

Here are a few of the workshops I decided to try:

I spent 2 days at this 4 day show and managed to see everything but,¬† I could have spent 2 more days in workshops and still had plenty of new things to try. I found this show a great place to find out about new products, buy supplies, browse magazines and meet people who love to make things like me. I will definitely be attending more of twistedthread’s shows in the future.

Twistedthread have shows throughout the year in the UK so stay glued to their website for upcoming dates as these shows are not to be missed!
