Win a Sewing Day Out!

Fancy a lovely day out at the Sewing for Pleasure, Fashion, Embroidery & Stitch and Hobbycrafts Show at the NEC in Birmingham which runs from 21-24 March 2013? You do? Good. I am giving away 5 pairs of tickets to this fantastic show! Yey!!


There will be shopping (start saving now!) with over 300 exhibitors, a selection of stunning Jane Austen costumes, Catwalk Fashion Shows; advice and top tips in the Sewing Hub and Knitting Lounge as well as a free programme of Quick & Easy Workshops and Talks and Demonstrations each day. You can find out more about the 3 shows on the ICHF Website. Sewing for Pleasure is here, Fashion, Embroidery & Stitch is here and Hobbycrafts here.


I've visited other ICHF events before and had a great day out so can really recommend them. You can read about my visit to the Creative Stitches Show last year here.


All you need to do to enter is follow my blog and leave a comment telling me who your favourite fabric designer/manufacturer is. I've just discovered Jennifer Paganelli and Sis Boom fabrics. Completely and utterly gorgeous! Who do you love?

If you follow me on Twitter and/or facebook and share the link to the giveaway you'll get an extra entry. Just mention it in your comment. Giveaway ends on Sunday 3 February 2013.

Good luck!

  1. I can vouch for this being a truly FABULOUS day out ! Went last year and had so much fun (and blew the budget!!) but sadly this year I'll be away and am going to miss it :-(
    Enjoy!

  2. Please count me in, great giveaway! I'm going to struggle to plump for just one favourite fabric designer. Favourites of the moment are Denyse Schmidt, Jennifer Paganelli and Amy Butler, but lots of others too, Urban Chiks and Momo for Moda - indecisive, me?

  4. Oh I love this show. I had to miss it last year as I had an operation on my ankle two days before. Really hoping to be able to make it this year!
    I want to make a quilt for snuggling in our lounge and have recently found a Tanya Whelan fabric range called 'Free Spirit'. Rather loving that at the moment!

  5. If I could only use fabric from one manufacturer I think it would have to be Liberty of London. I adore their lawns and their Lifestyle craft cottons.

  32. I like Liberty but I'm always on the lookout for something new. At the moment I'm buying materials suitable for baby girl dresses, trousers and lots of bibs - I love unusual but cute designs.
