New dates for CHSI Stitches 2021

We are pleased to confirm that CHSI Stitches is set to return to the NEC, Birmingham for a two-day event, 9-10 May 2021.   

With a change in the date line due to the ongoing global pandemic, CHSI Stitches has been moved to an early May position in the calendar.   
We are continuing to evolve and meet the ever-changing needs of the industry buyers and suppliers. Having taken on board feedback over recent years, the new event format will allow business to be conducted over just two days.
Key drivers to attract buyers – 
*VIP Platinum Buyers Club – focusing on key buyers and providing them with one-to-one support in the lead up to the event and access to those all-important networking events.  
*A series of networking events – to enable buyers to connect and do business with a variety of suppliers as well as participate in discussions about the industry with thought leaders from the craft industry.  
*The Craft Report – commissioned to provide the invaluable industry insight to show attendees.  Following what has been a very different year for the whole industry, The Craft Report will reflect this and focus on new areas of research also.   
*Keynote speakers – Informative and thought provoking speakers to lead the sessions in the Insights Hub. Our programe of speakers will provide knowledge, inspiration and solutions to challenges facing the creative industry.
