Kirstie Allsopp The Handmade Christmas Fair

Kirstie Allsopp is on a mission to get the nation crafting in time for Christmas, and The Handmade Christmas Fair is full to the brim with opportunities to buy, make, and learn from some of the finest crafters around.

We’re thrilled to join Kirstie and sponsors, Hobbycraft again as media partners, and the whole team will be coming along with a few of our crafty friends for workshops, on-stage performances and meet and greets.

Just like the September event at Hampton Court Palace, it’s a long weekend of hands-on making, entertaining interviews and demos. Only this time, we’ll be taking the extravaganza north, to Manchester Central from 20th-22nd November, in time for you to stock up on handmade Christmas gifts, craft supplies and fabulous food. Kirstie will be there every day to host sessions and, of course, craft!

The Super Theatre will stage interviews with some of the hottest crafters around, including The Great British Sewing Bee’s Deborah Simms, Annie Sloan, Michelin starred chef James Mackenzie and gift wrapping guru Jane Means. Choose from four Skill Workshop areas – Decorations, Family Crafts, Gifts and Wrapping, Tags & Cards – where you can try your hand at a range of techniques, and Grand Makes where you’ll do a simple make with 200 other crafters so you can get social with people of all ages and abilities.

It’s the perfect place to polish your crafting skills, or try something completely new. Take a look at the full line up at The Handmade Christmas Fair, where you can see all of the talks, workshops, and making sessions on offer. What’s more, you can browse and buy the work of talented designer-makers, many of whom have been featured in Mollie Makes, selling their wares in the Shopping Village. We can’t wait – see you there!
