LQ&N Fair 2018, Peterborough
LQ&N Fair 2018, Peterborough – Bigger and Better!
This year’s LQ&N Fair at Peterborough we are pleased to announce that we have more make-and-take spaces available in the trading hall giving visitors a chance to try out a craft and learn the skills to progress. Many of you will have seen these being trialled last year at the Fenland and Christmas Fairs.
To be held on Sunday 13th of May 2018, it will provide greater opportunities for visitors to meet a wider range of suppliers of materials, tools and accessories for all textile crafts, more exhibitors, new exhibitions and initiatives for our visitors to enjoy.
We are busily compiling the list of the suppliers and traders you will see on the day and will be publishing furtther details in the coming week. Please check back to see progress as we release more details.
Take a look at what made the Makit LQ&N 2017 such a success: https://www.makitfairs.com/peterborough-sunday-7-may-17/
The craft guilds play a huge role in promoting and raising the profile of textile crafts nationwide. They provide a platform for people to exhibit and discuss their work, as well as producing regular publications and holding educational conferences.
In this area of the fair you’ll be able to chat with representatives of the various guilds, find out about their plans for the forthcoming year and discuss what’s going on at both a local and national level.
Exhibitions at LQ&N 2018 Fair
As with all our events, we work to provide textile craft exhibits to give our visitors an opportunity to view works created by other craft enthusiasts, and showcase traditional and new modern techniques incorporated in to bodies of work to keep textile crafts alive to inspire future generations.
Check back in a few months to see what we have in store for our two day event.
