Hi mumsnetters

I want to share my experience on the simple christmas event.

There was three show, simple christmas, hobbycrafts and art materials.

It started from thursday 28th november for three days. Ending on 30th november 2014.

There was lots of FREE workshop but most of them you have to pre-book to avoid disappointment.

We were lucky to get involved in couple of the FREE workshops, Which we was enjoyable and professionally handled my artistis and artisans. We even had the privilage of taking some of the artwork

Quoting what my friends who attended this event said " really professionally with everything you need for crafts under one roof".

" It was a blessing for me. It had all the workshops i was looking for. Would love to come back again".

Thanks mumsnet for this opportunity smile
