We all dread that time when friends or colleagues start talking about the C-word within the first 6 months of the year, but before we know it, we’re already in September! We start thinking about putting money aside for gifts, what we are going to buy and where we’re going to buy it and how to find that perfect gift! Finding something personal, unique that you can say is handmade can be a bit of a muddle, but luckily for us, the Crafts for Christmas show held between 26th and 29th October at the SEC in Glasgow is your one stop shop to pick up beautiful, finished craft and gifts for friends, family and the home.
To help you along with your gift shopping, I can offer you the chance to win not one, but two tickets to the show!
Thanks to ICHF Events Ltd, the giveaway in this blog post is supported by Crafts for Christmas. All photos are also owned by and copyright of ICHF Events Ltd and should not be re-posted without prior permission from them.
The show brings together independent suppliers offering hundreds of exclusive handmade gifts and treats from jewellery to candles, handcrafted toys to handmade decorations, art, candles, ceramics, not forgetting delicious treats and gifts including farmhouse cheeses, specialist wines, handmade cakes and luxury chocolates. You can expect a festive day packed with live music, food and drink, inspirational features, workshops and demonstrations and exhibitors offering with lively on-stand demonstrations and craft supplies, including the latest in jewellery and papercraft.
Experts from craft associations, guilds and societies will be demonstrating the latest techniques at a range of exciting Workshops, Demonstrations and Make and Take sessions giving enthusiasts the know-how to create their own festive decorations, beautiful gifts and cards.
If you like adding that personal touch and prefer making your own gifts, your ticket also entitles you to free entry to the Stitching, Sewing & Hobbycrafts show. This is the perfect time to visit both shows in the same place for hobbyists from quilting queens to decoupage demons! Visitors can stock up on everything needed to create a craft-filled Christmas. From a selection of bolts of fabric, jewellery to beads and haberdashery and paper craft supplies, I have no doubt you will find everything you’ll need to create your own handmade gift for that personal touch to a loved one this Christmas.
