Attendance at the show, both exhibitors and visitors, was down a bit but I don't know by how much. Consequently it wasn't the normal crush and unpleasant experience it had previously become. There was room to move around and look at everything. Nobody seemed to be pushing or shoving through the crowds making it a much nicer experience for everybody.
What did you think of the show?
If you have never visited Hobbycrafts at the NEC before I would suggest you make your first visit on a Friday as this is the quietest day out of the four. If at all possible avoid the Saturday as it is the busiest day of the show.
There are usually plenty of bargains to be had at the show, we try and have several show offers to encourage you to part with your hard earned pennies.
We will be at the Northern Papercraft Extravaganza in Harrogate next week with a few more show specials to tempt you with.
But before that we have a brand new show on Create & Craft Saturday at 11am - Patera.
This show is about making jewellery, very easily. It is only 30 mins long so make sure you don't miss it.
I'll post up some photos of the jewellery over the next few days.
