Stitch and Creative Craft Show

I have just spoken to the organisers of the above who organise shows (like the Knit and Stitch but more craft based) throughout the UK and have done so successfully for a number of years. They are coming to Braintree in February and have asked me to let our members know that this is the first time they will be visiting Braintree. There has been several remarks made to me and the organisers about a "terrible" show in the past at Braintree, so please remember this is a brand new show to Braintree.
