The UK Sewing Events Calendar is superb for the growing number of sewing and crafting enthusiasts and now we can finally look forward to some of these great shows coming back after a year off.
Fabrics Galore is exhibiting at lots of show this year, so please do come and say hello on our stand as we would love to see you! We always bring a selection of our best new fabrics and have lots of suggestions to inspire your next make.
2021-22 Sewing Calendar
Quilters Fair 2022 - Farnham Maltings
16th January 2022
The actual show is also a favourite with customers for many reasons including the crèche for children and partners with the Sunday papers which means the shoppers can really get on with the business of buying fabric. Farnham itself is also a very pretty little rural market town, with many other attractions aside from the Maltings and only 32 miles away from London. The list of other exhibitors is also quite vast considering it’s a small village in Surrey; these last year included both the Quilters and Younger Quilters Guilds and the Patchwork corner. This all makes it an ideal place for any quilter to start the year.
Sewing for Pleasure - Birmingham NEC
17th March - 20th March 2022
At the moment there isn't a huge amount of information for this show yet as we are being early birds but we can guarantee we will be there. Paul in a lairy shirt with boxes of fat quarters, a great selection of patchwork cottons and everything you could wish for in terms of modern dressmaking and furnishing fabrics.
National Quilt Championships - Sandown Park
(To Be Confirmed)
Sandown Park is one of our more local shows, so is always a favourite for us. Looking out over the race course we will be there with our selection of samples to inspire you whether it be to whip up some cushions or to try making your grandson a super cute shirt. Not only that the fat quarter boxes will be packed and ready for you to rummage.
Quilts UK - Malvern Three Counties Showground
12th - 15th May 2022
In May we have the Quilting Festival and what is truly lovely about this show is its location, at the foot of the Malvern Hills it really is as picturesque as that sounds with rolling hills and the odd sheep. And our fun facts about Malvern is that, it's been famous for bottled spring water since 1622 and was the planned location for the evacuated British Government during WW1.
Thread Festival - Farnham Malting
(To Be Confirmed)
We aren't quite sure on the date for this one, but we are pretty sure it will be in early June. But we will be there with a great selection of dressmaking cloths with everything from viscoses to pretty light weight cottons. If dressmaking isn't your thing, we will as always have all our best selling furnishing fabrics too.
Knitting and Stitching - Harrogate Convention Centre
18th - 21st November 2021
We can guarantee one thing we will be there with all fab fabrics ready for you. As it is usually the last show of the year we make sure we bring everything a quilter or dressmaker could possibly want. This is traditionally our last show of the year so we always want to end it on a high, so we look forward to seeing everyone there.
