Event: -
A 3 day celebration of all things crafty
Bonkers about beads? Potty about patchwork? Nutty about knitting? Then you'll be excited to know that Craft Alive, regional Australia's leading craft and sales expo, is making its first foray into the Brisbane area from Friday 11 to Sunday 13 November at the Logan Metro Indoor Sports Centre. If your heart beats wildly at the thought of sewing, quilting, felting, beading, jewellery making, embroidery, card-making, or a host of other crafts, you won't want to be anywhere else.

More than 60 exhibitors will be offering a huge range of craft-related goods and services for a myriad of crafting pursuits. There will be workshops, make and takes, demonstrations, and displays from local guilds and groups. There will even be an on-site cafe for when all that crafting makes you peckish.

You can enjoy three whole days of "learning, creating, shopping, and inspiration" and "get hands on with the experts" with a number of Craft Chats (lecture style talks 25 minutes long) and Craft Classes (classroom style workshops where you complete a crafting project - 45 minutes long).
