First thing this morning I travelled over to the Creative Live Event at Gateshead Stadium.

I joined Dan Bancroft one of the presenters, and the girls from the marketing team at Create and Craft. We spent the day chatting to lots of the ladies and gents at the show, handing out the free tote bags and trying not to eat all of the Haribo sweets on the stand.

It is always lovely to hear about all of the different projects people are working on and what they are planning to do next and it was fabulous to see so many people taking part in the various workshops at the show.

Shows in the North East are few and far between so I do hope in the future we can see a few more shows that cater for a variety of different crafts including card making, soft crafts, jewellery and more.
