Stitches (Abbreviated name for Craft Hobby and Stitch International Trade Show) is the main UK trade show for much of the craft industry including the scrapbooking and paper crafts sectors.
We usually attend every year for a day trip, it is a chance to catch up and reconnect with suppliers, take advantage of good show offers and discounts and see the newer products in the flesh (especially important this year as we missed CHA)
We have been making plans for the main orders we want to place and highlighted stands we want to visit with a view to expanding the products we carry.
We are also planning on meeting up with a couple of the Design Team girls and it will be great to have their input into the lines we will carry and what new products catch their eye.
Sunday evening is when we will be announcing the challenge winner for the January Lists chalenge (there is still time to get your entry in before the 9pm Saturday deadline - see details in the linked post) but in addition I hope to have a little feedback from our day at Stitches and maybe even some photos :)
