The exhibition is on the 21st to 24th of March, at the NEC. The Sewing for Pleasure and Hobbycrafts shows are on at the same time, in neighbouring halls. If you've not been before, it really is a must-visit, there are so many amazing techniques on show, lovely supplies to buy, and a chance to catch up with friends and exhibitors you have met previously.
The region are looking for help with running the stall:
- Are you able to help man the stand on any day of the show? As the postcards are going to be displayed in a separate area opposite the main stand, more volunteers than usual are needed. In previous years, volunteering has also given free access to the show on the day you volunteer. I've not had it confirmed that this is the case this year, so it would be worth checking, but it seems likely.
- Do you have some of your own embroidery that can be displayed on the stand? The branch are contributing the 25th anniversary squares, which will be a great promotional opportunity for Birmingham, as lively, interesting textile displays always attract visitors.
