|I was dissapointed with the February, Stitches and Craft Show at Rosehill in NSW, Australia. As were a number of the quilters.
They only had about half the number of exhibitors as compared to the August show last year which was fantastic.
If you were going to check out the doll display it was very small infact that floor was half empty.
I actually thought I might of missed a floor due to so few exhibitors but no we had covered every floor.
Although it is spread out over a number of levels. I found a lot of gaps between the store display areas as compared with August show last year.
I highly recommend the August, Stitches and Craft show. Last year in August I spent big time. This year the February show I paid the $14 entry fee and I saved my money for eleswhere.
We were in and out within the hour.
I feel sorry for those that may have travelled a long distance to attend this years Feburary, show.
I went to the February, show last year 2006 and it was a similar deal much smaller scale then the August show. I thought I would try it again this year and see if it improved.
I will go to the August show later in the year. I hope like last year it is on a much larger scale then the February, show.
I've heard the Stitches Show they have at Darling Harbour is a good one to attend I will try and get to that one when it's on next.
I think the February, show this year was only of benefit if you want to book into a number the craft class's. They did have a lot of different types of craft class's available. The majority of which cost between $10 and $35 although some are as much as $60 and couple of them for kids only $5.
If you want to just do the craft class's I would recommend going to the the February, show. If you want to buy material and view exhibitions I would recommend going to the show in August.
Oh, well I will not attend the Febraury, show next year. I will just stick with the August, show.
