Feeling Crafty?

Feeling a bit crafty? Australasia’s favourite Craft & Quilt Fair has it all and this year it’s back at Christchurch by popular demand for the first time since 2010.

The possibilities are literally endless when it comes to arts and crafts – and the Craft & Quilt Fair will give you hundreds of new ideas to try out yourself. There are free seminar-style workshops and make-and-take classes each day where you can learn the crafts of card making, scrapbooking, stamping, quilting, jewellery making, textile art techniques and more, all from the experts.

Be inspired by the crafters and their displays and stock up on the best and latest in craft supplies from specialty retailers from all over New Zealand and Australia. Whatever you need, Australasia’s number one craft show is your one-stop shop.

So don’t settle for anything less than the best – come along to the Craft & Quilt Fair to immerse yourself in traditional crafts, and those with a modern twist! It may be the inspiration you need to create something really special. Get a group of friends together and enjoy a fabulous crafty day out… you’ll love it!
