We are pleased to present for the fourth year, the Makit LQ&N Christmas Fair where you will find a vast array of specialist suppliers of threads, tools, fabrics and accessories all under one roof and which promises to be the best Christmas Fair yet!

Whether you’re a passionate lacemaker, quilter or practice another textile craft altogether, you’re bound to find supplies for your latest projects – just imagine how convenient it will be to stock up without having to scour the internet for what you need and to be able to see and feel before you buy.

Like all Makit Fairs, the LQ&N Christmas Fair is being held in a fantastic venue that offers easy access and plenty of space for all the stall holders. This means that they can display a wider range of stock and carry out demonstrations, while you will have the space to browse each stall without being crushed and pushed along by the crowd. Why not stock up on Christmas presents for the fellow crafters in your life?


There was a fabulous atmosphere at the 2017 Fair and buzz in the room at Cranmore Park – why not see for yourself in our gallery:
