Craft fair and shows, a wool stand with every coloured wool.

Craft fairs are an important event in any creative calendar. With that in mind we’ve compiled a list of over 25 craft fairs and shows taking place throughout the year. From our roots in Devon to the South East, Manchester and beyond.

Here at Pom Stitch Tassel we are a big fan of craft shows, local craft fairs and craft festivals. Visiting a craft event allows us to stock up on many craft supplies, because you can never have too many of them!

So if you’re wondering “is there a craft fair near me?”, the answer is yes, you’ll definitely find one. Take a look through our list of the best craft shows in 2024.

You’ll find us, Pom Stitch Tassel, at Bovey Tracey’s Craft Festival this year. It’s an annual craft event in our craft calendar where we host a free workshop for children and sell our Pom Pom craft kits. It’s one of the best craft shows in the south west so don’t forget to book your tickets early and come and see us!
