Hobbycrafts, Sewing & Stitch - The Goodies

Over the last weekend the Hobbycrafts, Sewing for Pleasure and Fashion Embroidery & Stitch shows were on at the NEC. I went along with my mum on Saturday and had a great time with some workshops and shopping!

Here are my goodies:

I've been wanting to try some goldwork for ages, and when I saw someone selling kits at the show I couldn't resist!

Fabrics! Lots of fabrics. I don't remember from which seller I got these, but they were a good price and lovely!

Some lovely Madeira machine embroidery threads! I'm going to have good fun with these once I get my new sewing machine.

And some basics. A new embroidery hoop, a proper pair of scissors (only for fabric!!) and some Thread Heaven to try.

Did anybody else go to the show? What goodies did you get?

I'll be posting about some workshops I did as well soon, so check back!


  1. I went for the first time and really enjoyed myself. Great fun! Only wish I'd had the energy/time to do more workshops

    1. I definitely had more fun going to the workshops than I did last time when I was just shopping. I spent less as well!

  2. You've got a wonderful selection of fabrics there, I look forward to seeing what you make with them :)
    Best wishes.

    1. Thanks! I'm looking forward to finding out what I do with them as well! ;)
