As textile crafters and suppliers ourselves, we’ve seen the good, bad and the indifferent when it comes to craft fairs from both sides of the table. We decided to use those insights to create a choice of fairs throughout the year.

Makit Fairs are well organised, friendly and the ideal place to meet other people who share your passion for crafting.

They take place at quality and accessible venues with plenty of space, so you won’t be pushed along by the crowd. Instead, you can relax and take time out to enjoy everything that’s on offer.

When you need to rest your feet, you can enjoy food and refreshments in the coffee shop area.
