If, like me, you are obsessed with all things crafty then I have the best competition ever for you right here!
WIN a pair of tickets to Crafts for Christmas and Stitching, Sewing & Hobbycrafts at the SEC in Glasgow, from October 26-29. I, unfortunately, won’t be there, thanks to my brother’s 50th (I’ll forgive him), but you can go!
Christmas is just the perfect time of year to get crafty. I love nothing more than planning my Christmas crafting – a few years back I made pink felt flamingos as Christmas cards, and last year I crocheted dozens of mini Christmas trees!
2016 has been my year of crochet! Could not crochet at all until I picked up a hook and found @bellacoco_ videos on YouTube in April. Now… I’m hooked and have created all of this and more! And I love, love, love it! #crochet #newhobby #2016memories #2016 #instacrafty #igcrochet #crochetchristmas #hookedoncrochet #crochetblanket #crochetpoppies #crochetwreath #crochetscarf #crochetlove #instacrafty
Crochet is my craft of choice these days – I taught myself in April 2016 and can’t get enough of it. These two co-located shows bring togethher over 150 exhibitors showcasing artisan, handcrafted gifts, supplies and festive inspiration for crafters.
And if you don’t win, you can snap up two tickets for the price of one (£9)

There will be independent suppliers offering hundreds of exclusive handmade gifts and treats from jewellery to candles, handcrafted toys to handmade decorations, art, candles, ceramics, not forgetting delicious treats and gifts including farmhouse cheeses, specialist wines, handmade cakes and luxury chocolates.
Stitching, Sewing & Hobbycrafts is a mecca for hobbyists from quilting queens to decoupage demons. Visitors can stock up on everything needed to create a craft-filled Christmas.
There will also be live music, food and drink, inspirational features, workshops and demonstrations and exhibitors offering with lively on-stand demonstrations and craft supplies, including the latest in jewellery and papercraft.
Experts from crafts associations, guilds and societies will be demonstrating the latest techniques at a range of exciting Workshops, Demonstrations and Make and Take sessions giving enthusiasts the know-how to create their own festive decorations, beautiful gifts and cards.
