Why not come and exhibit at one of the UK’s most respected textile craft fairs?

Makit Fairs have been holding exceptional events for the wider textile crafts field for many years - we started out visiting fairs and exhibiting ourselves so we have a keen eye of what visitors and traders are looking for from an event.

Are you looking for an opportunity to get your products seen by your target customers that offers a good return on your investment?

Perhaps you have an online shop or a bricks and mortar business and are looking for affordable ways to promote and bring your products to a wider audience?

Our fairs give you:

Exhibitor and trader testimonials

"We are always guaranteed to have plenty of space around the stall to set up and move around during the day; makes it so much easier and more enjoyable not to be cramped in. It also makes it much better for the visitors to get around the Fair especially important for those with mobility aids."

"We've been coming to the Makit Fairs for years and each time it gets better and better. It's testament to the organisation and planning that Makit do to ensure exhibitors and visitors have an enjoyable day."

"It was our first time exhibiting at the Makit LQ&N Fair in Peterborough. We were very pleased with the outcome, lots of interested visitors and sales were good with orders coming in long after the Fair itself from new customers who saw us on the day."
