One of the best things about being a creative stitcher is getting to know the community. Here at Oekaki World we know that community spirit is important to us, and that’s why we encourage all of you to share your Oekaki projects with us. We just love to hear about what you’ve been creating.
An even better way to get involved with the creative stitching and sewing world is to attend one of many of the countrywide events that happen every year. From huge exhibition centres full to the brim with crafty ideas, to smaller festivals of craft happening in every nook of the country.
We’ve rounded up our favourite crafty events happening this year, why not check them out?
