It always lovely to hear of a success story.    We spoke to Talia Phillips about the Award the Craft Cotton Company won at the recent trade Show held at the NEC.   It’s where all the lovely shops we buy our stash supplies from meet the manufacturers and choose the ranges of fabrics and notions we are going to see in the shops this coming year.

Here’s what she said:

CHSI Stitches is Europe’s largest and most influential dedicated trade show for the art, craft, needlecraft and hobby sector. There are around 8000 buyers from 43 countries that visit us. This year was our 16th time exhibiting!! Exhibiting at trade shows are always very full on but a lot of fun. It was great to put faces to names and to meet so many lovely customers and friends!

This year was extra exciting because we were nominated again for the Craft Business awards under the “Best Stitching & Haberdashery Manufacturers / Suppliers / Distributor” and we won! So thank you to all of our amazing customers and friends for voting for us.
