Coronavirus update: 22/04/2020

UPDATE: Sewing for Pleasure, Fashion & Embroidery and the Creative Craft Show – Birmingham NEC – 25-28 June 2020.

 

As you may have heard in the media, the Event Industry are supporting the Government and the NHS during the Covid-19 pandemic, and we have now received confirmation that The NEC will remain as a field hospital for the foreseeable future.

Because of this Sewing for Pleasure, Fashion and Embroidery and The Creative Craft Show are no longer taking place from the 25th – 28th June 2020.

All ticket holders will again be automatically transferred to our flagship NEC show which runs from the 5-8th November 2020. This show is the biggest event in the craft and hobby calendar and we look forward to finally welcoming you all for some much needed creative and crafting inspiration! Ticket holders will also gain free entry to Simply Christmas and Cake International (the worlds largest sugar craft event).

Our November show will have aisles and aisles of sewing, papercraft, embroidery, mixed media, art, jewellery making, clay (the list is endless). It will play host to the same amount of workshops as at our March show – to suit all levels and interests. Already confirmed is the wonderful Kerri Padmore with her sewing with scraps Christmas workshops, with many more to be announced soon!

We are also excited to be able to bring you the Sew Your Style Competition finalists. Plus leading brands including Crafters Companion, Create and Craft, Hochanda and many, many more.

All show tickets will be automatically transferred over, if you have already booked you do not need to do anything.

If you cannot attend the new dates you have the option to move your ticket to Sewing for Pleasure, Fashion & Embroidery and The Creative Craft Show in 2021 (Thursday 18th – Sunday 21st March 2021). Alternatively you can get a refund*. Please email info@ichf.co.uk with your preference. Please include your order number.

 

* If you are requesting a refund please allow our team up to 60 days to process this during this busy time. If you have already requested a refund, we ask you to please not request it again. Our small team are steadily working through the list and will get to all emails in time.

 

 

23.04.20 UPDATE: Weald of Kent Country Craft Show – Penshurst Place 4 – 6 September 2020.

 
As the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to develop both in the UK and globally, the health and wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors and staff is our number one priority.

We have taken the difficult decision to cancel both of our Weald of Kent Country Craft Shows due to take place at Penshurst place this year.  We had originally tried to look at amalgamating the two events and running a summer festival in July but this is now looking increasingly unlikely. 

We are of course extremely disappointed given the preparation that goes into the shows from all involved. We look forward to continuing to work with our community of exhibitors and visitors to deliver great shows for everyone in 2021. 

All ticket holders will be automatically refunded and notified by email shortly. 

* Please allow our team up to 60 days to process refunds during this busy time. If you have already requested a refund, we ask you to please not request it again. Our small team are steadily working through the list and will get to all emails in time.
