About the event


Craft, Hobby + Stitch International 2024 will be held as a live event at NEC Birmingham. The hosting date for the event is set for February 25th to February 26th, 2024. Attendees should note that wearing face masks in indoor spaces is highly encouraged. At present, the UK does not have travel restrictions. 

A Brief Introduction 

CHSI – Craft, Hobby + Stitches International – enjoys a leading position in the craft and hobby industry in the UK and its known as the country’s number one creative craft show. This certainly is backed up by the numbers as editions tend to bring in over 6000 buyers from all over the country and Europe on average. Those are specifically good numbers, when you count that there are only 200 exhibitors on the show floor. If that sounds like a smart business investment, then you need to travel to the NEC in Birmingham, UK for your dose of sales opportunities. 

An Industry Profile 

The focus of CHSI is predominantly connecting exhibitors with buyers and as such it exists more as a procurement platform, which sees over 100,000 different products showcased under one roof. The trade fair offers the full breadth of products within craft and hobby – paper supplies, beading supplies, fabrics and tools, clays and doughs, painting supplies and paints. Adding another layer to the experience is the busy support program. The Insights Hub is where you can discover education resources aimed at running a successful business and new market trends with workshop sessions running for a total of 50 hours.
