Chocolate orange cover pattern Raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support

This year we provided a free pattern for visitors in our exhibitor guide. We also sold kits to go with the pattern, with all proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Support. If you missed out, you can now download the pattern for £1.50, and once again all the funds will go to Macmillan.


The dates for 2019 are Saturday 12th October 10am-5pm and Sunday 13th October 10am-4pm.
