Creativa Brussels 2012

This Saturday I visited the craft fair called Creativa in Brussels. Two friends went along (the one quite creative, the other one giving her first tries :-). There was lots to be seen in the five different "villages" : Textiles, Art, Craft and Hobby, Kids and Flowers and decoration.

I highly enjoyed because it's one of the best creative fairs in Belgium :-) Here are some pictures:


Entrance of the hall

Dessins DHC where I bought a chart for an octagonal box

Anny Boutique - where I found fabrics for making my first quilt

Dreaming of that big left box for my craft room
(it's quite expensive b.t.w.)

Close-up

Some Gorjuss kits (photo taken with Pirlimpin in my thoughts :-)

Ceramics and "papier maché" (chewed paper :-)

Woodwork and Herbs, spices, tea and vinegars



Some of the quilts on display

The round ones are my favourite! It's from an artist called Pascale Bebronne (FR)
Think I'll be buying her special ruler once I get more into the quilting thing ;-)


There were lots of other things to see ... materials for scrapping and card making, candles, food, ... There were even the "beautify me" displays = nails, jewelry, ... ;-).

And more important yet ... Here's are my accumulated treasures! I had to seriously restrain myself, or otherwise I would've bought a double amount of things :-)! Especially the books section was reeeeaaaaally tempting (I've made a mental note which books I want and shall be buying them in the future but ... everything at it's proper time :-)



Hope you enjoyed my small tour! :-)

It looks like you had a fun time at the craft show. I could go a little crazy in show like that especially since I do all sorts of crafts too. :D Kudos for practicing restraint.
