Mark Francis, from the 2020 series, will be on hand at each day of the show to share his stitching, sewing and fashion design skills with crafters in Farnborough. Mark can be seen regularly on Sewing Street TV demonstrating his own patterns and those of many other brands too. He also gives talks throughout the country, teaching workshops and bringing excellent content with the brands Juki, Vlieseline and Native Lighting.

A special feature at the new show in Farnborough is a capsule exhibition of Woman's Weekly vintage sewing patterns and fabrics beautifully recreated by a team of dressmakers and an archivist, telling a story of fashion styles and trends over the decades.

From macramé, silk painting and lace making to quilting and needle felting, visitors can get involved with demonstrations and bookable in advance workshops offering the chance to try something completely different or extend their skills with specialist crafters. With more than 100 exhibitors, the show is the place to be for all very latest supplies, ideas, and innovations in the craft and hobby world.
