The demonstrations will be free for the visitors that attend the show where they will have the chance to learn new techniques and meet the Sewing Bee celebrities.
With the new series of the Great British Sewing Bee starting on 1st May 2016, this will be a great opportunity for keen sewers to learn new techniques and get inspiration across an array of different textile categories.
This year’s show will see hundreds of workshops, demonstrations and interactive features running throughout the event, and is the perfect place to get great ideas, learn new skills and meet like-minded people. There is plenty of shopping opportunities too. Over 200 specialist companies, from sewing machine manufacturers to yarn makers, will be selling a huge range of essential knitting, sewing and textile craft supplies, with a host of show discounts and special offers.
