Award-winning Crafting Live show returns to Peterborough

Stephanie Weightman’s award-winning show, Crafting Live, is returning to the East of England Arena and Events Centre on October 21-22, 2022, to bring a weekend of hands-on fun to crafters of every age, ability and skill, in Peterborough.

Visitors can stock up on crafting essentials or find inspiration for their next project by browsing the wide range of exhibitors and merchants coming to the show. Visitors will be able to choose from a huge variety of materials and items including stamps, dies, decoupage, fabric, wool, ribbon, beads, and much more. The show is the perfect opportunity for visitors to meet like-minded people and make new friends that share their hobbies and hear from experts demonstrating all kinds of crafts and techniques at the show.

Create & Craft, the UK’s first 24-hour leading Craft Channel, will be broadcasting live from the show, giving visitors the chance to meet some of their favourite crafting presenters. 

Visitors will be able to learn a new skill and enjoy a big choice of pre-booked mini workshop sessions in Crafting Live’s hugely popular Make & Takes area. The workshops will feature well-known crafters and brands including Two Red Robins, Lemon Lane, Debbi Moore Designs and more. Places on each workshop are limited, and visitors can pre-book for free at the booking point from 10 am every day of the show. 

The show will be open from 10 am-5 pm on Friday and Saturday. Tickets are £5, available from the Crafting Live website –
