Crafts fair Malins

Hi all,

Yesterday I visited the "Hobbysalon" in Malins. They claim to be the largest crafts fair in Belgium and this year was special because they celebrated their 20th year.

The last years it was always the same shops/stands that were present but ... they made an effort and there were a couple of new shops (and the catering was much better - everything bio and natural).

My biggest discovery was a couple of German cross stitch designers called "Liebevolle Kreuzstichentwürfe". Just gorgeous! I would've bought everything but ... I decided to have a look at their website first because they have lots of different designs (more than displayed in their booth - which was really well decorated with lots of details).

I didn't buy a lot because I already ordered a couple of things via the internet. I just got me a couple of fabrics as backing for the Prairie Schooler santas I'm stitching, a book from Mango Pratique "Merry Christmas" and an Italian cross stitch encyclopedia about flowers.

I love craft fairs because it always gives new ideas, you're able to see cross stitch and quilt designs up close and so on ...

Next update will be a picture of the Prairie Schooler santas!

Hello Ann, tu as vraiment du passer un agréable moment lors de ce salon: j'adore aussi les salons, on y découvre plein de jolies choses à faire, on y puise plein de nouvelles idées:)
C'est bien, dis-moi, tu as été très raisonnable !!
Très beau Dimanche:)
