Count down to Creative Crafts

With just over a month to go until our next Creative Crafts on Saturday 14th October 2017 at Gateshead Leisure Centre.  Make a note in your diary, share on facebook, tell your friends and fellow crafters, let us make this 20th Anniversary  Show a special one.

We have some great stands coming, Cross Stitch Workshop from Lancaster, Craft Habitat from London, Funkyneedlework from Amble, Jelly Beans from Nottingham, 1 Craft 1 from Lincoln, to name just a few as well as many local crafters too.

Celebrating this milestone with us is Inspirational Debbi Moore who many of you may remember from the Arena Days.  Debbi is now a well know TV personality and appears frequently on the Create n Craft show shopping channel spreading her inspiration and ideas.  Debbi is offering visitors the chance to take part in some FREE workshops she will be running throughout the day ranging from Christmas Magic to dimensional book folding – so get booking – full list available on our website www.initialjcreativecrafts.co.uk

If you like sewing or belong to a craft group do you have time to make and donate a Dress for “Dress a girl around the World”.  We have started to receive some lovely dresses already made and donated by our wonderful visitors. Further information available on our website.  They are simple to make and I am sure will be cherished by a little girl in a third world country.

If your craft is paper craft then have a look and see if you have any unwanted craft items that you could donate to operation Christmas Child or better still if you would like to fill a shoe box then Carol who is a representative of Operation Christmas Child for the Gateshead area will be happy to receive these at the show.

We also offer visitors a FREE shuttle bus service from Gateshead Civic Centre – Park for £1.20 all day – ample parking and hop on the park and ride shuttle bus and get dropped off near the Leisure Centre entrance.  Look out for Wilson’s Mini Bus, first collection from Gateshead Civic Centre at 8.30am with last pick up from Leisure Centre at 3pm.

500 FREE goody bags up for grabs for the 1st 500 visitors through the door.  Don’t miss out, these will go fast!

Make a date in your diary – don’t miss Creative Crafts at Gateshead Leisure Centre on Saturday 14th October 2017 from 9am till 3pm
