Stitches 2016 – Will you be there?


21-23 FEBRUARY 2016

Thousands of creative and crafty professionals are preparing to gather at this year’s CHSI Stitches 2016 trade show at Birmingham’s NEC. CHSI or Stitches is Europe’s largest trade show for craft, needlecraft, art and hobby. This is the place to discover new and exciting innovations in the craft industry, watch demonstrations, try new products and have your inspiration ignited by a wealth of creative know-how.

We will!

If you are a craft business wanting to expand your company’s reach, boost sales, add innovative new products to your store, educate and inspire your team and mingle with thousands of people like you who love craft, then this show is a MUST!
