I've just been sent an email from a firned about this. Has anyone been to any previous ones as I can't find out much about it on the net.

Cheers!

Sounds lovely - where is it?

Jayzmummy Sun 24-Apr-05 23:52:41

ummmm I would be interested in going along......have had a brief chat with another crafter here about possibly having a crafty mums meet up....somewhere like this would be ideal.

Hi - Its at the Business Design Centre in Islington (London) from 21 - 24 July. Its part of the Artists & Illustrators show. If anyone is up for a meet up that would be great. Apparently there are workshopd you can book and if you buy a certain no of tickets in advance, you get one free (not sure how many).

Hey, I think I might come!

AuntyQuated Mon 25-Apr-05 14:49:29

kids finish school that weekend and we go away a few days later...london is a bit far for me too


NEC Birmingham would be better for me

Jayzmummy Mon 25-Apr-05 17:03:29

Ive just checked out the exhibitions at the NEC in B'ham.

Nov 10th - 13th there are two arts & crafts exhibitions....one in hall 12 and the other in hall 12, which are both open to the public.

Hobbycrafts and Christmas Crafts, both £7 entry if you pre book your entrance ticket.

Would anyone fancy coming along if we tried and organised this as a meet up??

Its a over the weekend so maybe for those travelling we could organise it as an overnight meet up somewhere???

Just think a whole weekend ....no men...no kids and all those lovely crafts to ooooooggle!!!

Its ages away but was the only exhibition I could find that was central to where most of us live.

What do you think???

Jayzmummy Mon 25-Apr-05 17:04:22

Should be hall 11 & hall 12....kids were moaning at me to get off the computer and I wasnt concentrating!!!!

hunkermunker Mon 25-Apr-05 17:05:32

JM...how wonderfully tempting! Yes, I'd be up for that as a meet-up...other like-minded people with whom to browse and discuss crafts - yum!

Jayzmummy Mon 25-Apr-05 17:15:44

details of NEC Exibition are here

Im going to but there anyway....pre christmas visit to the family and im seeing Miceal Bauble at the NIA on the 12th Nov.

I'd be tempted for the Birmingham one.

champs Mon 25-Apr-05 23:18:58

being a greedy so and so mqy go to both... well i'll use the excuse that i'll be heavily pg and miserable so need day out for islington one. and the fact that i will need a day out to cheer me up after i've had the sprog to go to the birmingham one

cheekychops03 Wed 27-Apr-05 14:53:10

Well, if anyone fancies meeting up at the Islington one, CAT me because I'll be up for it.
N.B. comopulsory spending and chocolate eating required!!!!!

anorak Wed 27-Apr-05 15:22:49

I'll definitely come to the London one.

champs Wed 27-Apr-05 23:53:15

whoo hooo!!

Jayzmummy Thu 28-Apr-05 00:07:18

Peachy, Are you up for a night away????

Going up to Bolton to meet up with AQ and whoever else wants to tag along at the end of May.
We are going to the Hobby Craft exhibition....workshops etc.

Leave Friday afternoon....stay over at a travel lodge, all day at the craft fair and then either ANOTHER night away and drive back Sunday morning....or if two nights away is not possible I dont mind the drive back on saturday night.

Just thought as I'll be passing your door I'd ask.

Anyone else fancy coming along....I'll be heading up the M5 from the south west....so I can stop off on route and collect anyone else who wants a weekend away!!! Can fit 7 in the car.

CAT me if your interested.

anorak Thu 28-Apr-05 08:41:24

What's the date for that, jayzmummy? I might come though I would meet you there as I live by M1 jct 6 too far out of your way. I feel the need for a bread from my family

AuntyQuated Thu 28-Apr-05 10:09:09

it is here Anorak and is the weekend of May 21st.

Anymore takers?

anorak Thu 28-Apr-05 10:15:46

Thanks AQ - and of course it was a break I fancied, not a bread

anorak Thu 28-Apr-05 10:17:46

I will have to ask DH when I pick the right moment. Have also emailed my sister who loves crafts and asked if she is interested.

Dingle Thu 28-Apr-05 10:25:40

ooowww...I want to go too!!!

It's the weekend of our God-daughter's communion!

MandM Thu 28-Apr-05 14:25:21

Oh JM - I was planning on going to that - I only live about 15 miles away from the Reebok! Have just realised that it is the same weekend that we are on holiday. Oh bum!
We've booked a last minute week away for dh's 30th and thought we'd picked a clear week but there's about 4 things that we have since realised we should have been doing that week - including dd's physio!
Have a brilliant time!

AuntyQuated Thu 28-Apr-05 14:28:22

where abouts are you M&M...i'm about 10 minutes away from Reebok?
