Fashion, Embroidery and Stitch, ICHF Show at the NEC

With all the activity getting the Granary Studio up and running I havent had time to report back on the great Fashion, Embroidery and Stitch Show which is presented by ICHF ( International Craft and Hobbies Fair) every year on the third weekend in March at the NEC in Birmingham. It is held at the same time as the Hobbycrafts Show and the Sewing for Pleasure Show. This makes for a very interesting and interested audience and even in our part of this event there is great variety with college graduate displays, and catwalk shows with the exuberance of the music floating across the show three times each day. The sister show is staged a week later at the Excel in  London.
It is the first show I attend in the year, and the Pic below shows my stand and the visit of the lovely Kevin Mead from Art Van Go at the end of the day when the coaches have left and the show becomes quieter. this is when we get the chance to catch up with old friends. the photo is courtesy of the Gorgeous Kim Thittichai with whom I will be presenting something special at this show next year, watch this space…
