ICHF Show - Manchester

I decide to try my hand at another show after the disaster of the last one so I went to the ICHF hobbycraft show at EventCity in Manchester.  The exhibitors were a mixture of paper craft and textiles. 

There were some lovely samples on display.

There were also some demo's going on but I didn't get any photos of those!!

And some fabulous costumes.

And more. 

After lunch it really emptied out.

A complete contrast to the previous show I attended at Donington.

And this is my stash!!  I finally got my hands on a set of the metallic distress stains. 

And when I got home, these were waiting for me too, my delivery from Oyster Stamps.  The white Posca pen was from Tiger Pens.

Sorry Sam, I'm on catch up! Love the look of that show and I'm really liking all your images of the textile work - right up my street.
I really fancy that dry glitter and will be getting some AND I'm about to buy a pan pastel - yes, just one!! - for my Andy Skinner course. You never know, this might be the start of something. . . . .
Have fun with your goodies.
