“This is our second year exhibiting at Stitches and it’s been brilliant for us. We’ve seen a big increase in sales since last year and a lot more recognition of our brand. It’s great to be able to connect with our existing stockists face to face as well as to get in front of new customers and put our products in their hands so they can feel the quality.”
Tilly Walnes, Tilly and the Buttons
“It’s been an absolutely fabulous show for Korbond. I think what’s been important for us this year is the time and effort that’s gone into the product selection, design, the stand and the execution. Sunday was brilliant day in terms of the buzz, lots of new retailers, lots of new enquiries. Tuesday has been one of our best days ever at the show. To top it off with winning the award for best stand is the icing on the cake. It’s been one of our best years here. I’m absolutely delighted.”
Stuart Caller, General Manager, Korbond Group
“We have exhibited at CHSI since it started and have been very pleased with the show this year. We have met lots of buyers from Europe and particularly Eire looking to find more diverse products for their shops. This year, perhaps due to a better economic outlook, buyers have been more positive and confident. We have lots of new ranges and lines, which is always important for the quilting market as buyers want interesting new ranges to inspire their customers.”
Andrea Heaton, Director at EBOR Fabrics Ltd
“This is our first ever trade show and we have had a phenomenal response which has exceeded our expectations. We have met a mixture of buyers from department stores to independent retailers and buyers from museum shops and bookshops. We have launched our Elephant beginner crochet kit here and it has been the focus of attention for visitors to the stand.”
Kerry Lord, Director at Toft: Luxury British Knitting
“This is the show for craft retailers to be at. It’s your chance to make sure you are stocking 2018’s must-have craft products. Stitches is a pivotal industry gathering and sets the trends for the year to come.”
Julie Bonnar, Editor, Craft Focus
