Welcome to our fabulous Extravaganza – the GBCE , a 3 day event for all crafters from papercrafters, cardmakers, scrapbookers,felters, brides, jewellery makers – well basically anyone who loves crafting!
We bring in tutors and demonstrators from Ireland and the UK. We have a shopping village with several promotions and show offers where you can stock up on your craft supplies, buy the latest products and basically get your fix of retail therapy!
This year we will also have Pop Up Shops taking half day stands at the show, bringing you more variety.
There are also loads of demonstrations, make & takes and space to simply sit and craft with your friends. And of course there are a wonderful range of hands on craft classes. The class list will be up very very shortly and is fab this year!!
We have worked hard to make the event affordable and accessible to all by locating it in Athlone . We know you love shopping, and love doing classes, so we have made that our main focus.
This blog is a forum for the whole event. As our plans progress, we will be keeping you informed and updated. And, we also want to hear from you. We want to know how you would like to be involved, and if you have any questions or queries, please do feel free to ask, and we will do our best to answer.
GBCE 2012 will take place on Friday to Sunday 5,6 & 7 October 2012.
