On Saturday 15 & Sunday 16 July, the Crafting Community descended on Doncaster Racecourse for The annual Crafting Live event. Hosted by Stephanie Weightman, craft show presenter and passionate crafter, the award-winning event remains hugely popular amongst new and experienced craft lovers.
The exhibition hall was bustling with over 75 separate stalls, offering everything from paper craft materials to wools and yarns for knitting. The Doncaster Racecourse site was ideally suited to such an event, with perfect spaces both inside and out and enough room to accommodate a great range of workshops and seminars.
Providing thousands of craft products and materials all under one roof, all craft interests where catered for. With our exhibitors stocking stamps, dies, decoupage, fabric, ribbon, beads and everything in between, guests were able to stock up on materials whilst taking inspiration for future projects. Alongside this, workshops were running throughout the two days covering everything from lace work to cards.
In its 8th year, the event drew in crowds of over 6000 across the two days. A free shuttle bus was available, running between the racecourse and Doncaster train station for those not driving, and ample free parking for those who where. The Racecourse also provided a great array of dining options with our food hall open for guests throughout the event and ample room for crafters to sit down and rest between workshops, seminars and shopping.
As ever the event was brilliantly attended with a fantastic, creative atmosphere. Crafting Live always draws a passionate crowd and is an event the racecourse looks forward to hosting each year. The event has already received some incredibly positive feedback and so we thank the team at Crafting Live and of course the 2017 attendees!
