Win tickets to Sewing for Pleasure, Hobbycrafts and Fashion, Embroidery & Stitch!!

Between 21-24 March, Birmingham NEC will once again play host to three wonderful creative shows.

This year the show will include a selection of costumes that have featured in some of the most famous Jane Austen adaptations including the BBC’s Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth (they have the white shirt!).

Sewing for Pleasure features more than 150 stalls filled to bursting with irresistible products, inspiring displays and expert advice.

For those interested in ‘Make Do and Mend’ a visit to the Sewing Hub is a must. Experts are on hand to give valuable advice and practical workshops.

After all that you can pop into the second show Fashion, Embroidery and Stitch where you can enjoy free catwalk shows throughout the day.

Finally a trip across to Hobbycraft where you can indulge in workshops covering everything from beadwork, jewellery making, stamping, card making, embossing, pyrography and papercraft.

To top it all you can even visit for free if you are one of the 10 lucky winners of our latest competition.
