Be inspired to create your own crafts
The biggest craft and quilt fair is coming to The Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Over 5 days from 18 May until 22 May, you will be able to attend workshops, many of them free to learn how to quilt, stamping, do decorated crafts and stitching.

As part of the show, there is a showcase of wearable art on the body. This mini event has grown from a small fashion show to an international wearable art competition. The display has felt covers, wearable beads and hats and table wraps. The touch and feel table allows you to handle items.

Look at the results of a new mini textile art challenge where quilters were invited to enter a small piece to celebrate their best furry friend. The main highlight is the display of the best of Australian quilters. Some of these individuals pieces are so huge, they take up an entire wall.

There is an area where you can learn about making your own Christmas gifts and decoration ideas. These demonstrations are free and in 30 minutes gives you several good ideas to take home.
As usual there are many suppliers on site to sell you the latest equipment and materials for your projects at home.

Entry is $17 for a single day ticket or you can purchase multiday passes starting from $32 for two days or $45 for three days. Children under 16 years of age are $8 each, with under 5 years old free.

Doors are open from 9.00am till 4.30pm daily. It is recommended to take public transport to this event.
