Yesterday I went to Creative Stitches & Hobbycrafts show in London, and I’m still buzzing! The show was literally packed with craft supplies of all kinds, fantastic exhibitions of designers and textile artists, workshops and demonstrations.. Fantastic and totally overwhelming!
By the way, I noticed that the longest queue was formed to buy fabric, and I heard a lady asking whether they had a “car fabric” – that’s what “Sewing Bee” doing to people :)
As I already said there is a lot to see there, I just want to share a couple of my highlights..
How cool is this knitted marine world?!!
And the Yellow Submarine:
Another highlight: an exhibition of “Jane Austen costumes” from different period dramas..
Emma Thompson’s dress from Sense and Sensibility:
Gwyneth Paltrow’s dress from Emma and Billie Piper’s one from Mansfield Park:
And, finally, Colin Firth’s-Mr. Darcy costume… Yes, it is THAT SHIRT!
And on that pleasant note, I’m going to end my post… :)
