As a textile craft enthusiast, you probably use lots of different sources to find the materials, tools and accessories that you need to practice your favourite craft. Scouring through magazines, websites and forums to find the best supplier for your needs can be time-consuming and might even slow down your latest project. Then, of course, you have to wait for your order to arrive. We created Makit Fairs to simplify this process for you, bringing together everything you might need as a textile craft enthusiast under one roof, so you can spend less time sourcing supplies and more time crafting.

You’ll be impressed with the range of supplies available at a Makit Fair, where stall after stall of specialist products for needlecraft, quilting, lacemaking, embroidery and other textile crafts is laid out before you like a banquet. Although shopping online is fantastic, attending a Makit Fair gives you the opportunity to see your purchases before you buy and ask the knowledgeable suppliers any questions you may have.

Textile crafts in the UK have a rich and vibrant history, and the diversity of the textile craft community reflects this. From enthusiastic beginners to skilled life-long hobbyists and kitchen table start-ups to fully fledged businesses, the creativity and knowledge within this community is breath-taking, and is something we are passionate about nurturing.

Makit Fairs provide an inclusive environment for suppliers, experts and enthusiasts to come together, and each fair offers something for everyone. As a family of textile craft enthusiasts with a professional background in the textiles industry, we have plenty of experience of organising and attending fairs in the UK and across the world, and we use this expertise to make sure that every fair offers a fantastic family day out.
