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 2023.
