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.

Margie, I actually contacted the organisers with my concerns and they actually did reply promptly and addressed my concerns. They advised me that I am correct the February show is not as large as the August, show. That they try and have different features at each show. I would suggest you e-mail the organisers via the Website to confirm which Melbourne show is the larger one and or which is more focused on your paticular interest. This way if you only want to go to one show per year you can select the right one. I have to say the larger show in August last year was fantastic and it should not be missed. I will be attending again this year.

Thanks, you have helped me make a decision about not attending the show when it comes to Melbourne in March. If they had little for quilters - they will have even less for those interested in sewing clothes.
