With only 14 weeks to go, the countdown to Christmas is already well under way!

And if you like to add a personal touch during the festive season, the Crafts at Christmas and Hobbycraft show at the SECC is the ideal place to stock up on ideas and materials.

The show runs from October 24 to 27, from 9.30 a.m. each day.

Visitors can embrace the magic of Christmas with a treasure trove of handmade gifts, crafts and treats from hundreds of exhibitors. There will also be a fabulous selection of goodies in the Festive Food and Drink aisle.

You’ll find everything from fruity preserves, luxury chocolates and gourmet nuts, to handmade cheeses, farmhouse chutneys and wines and spirits - ideal Christmas presents, or a special treat for yourself!

In Hobbycrafts, you can see all the latest innovations and supplies from over 200 exhibitors from the world of creative craft or take part in one of the many free demonstrations and workshops.

With everything from stamping, beading and jewellery making to papercraft, cardmaking and calligraphy, this is a must stop for any craft fan.

You’re sure to find everything you need for your next crafty project.

Industry professionals and celebrities from both TV and print will be running workshops and demonstrations throughout the show.

Meanwhile in the Graduate Marquee, there will be stunning works from the cream of newly qualified designer/makers who are just starting out in their fields as professional craftspeople - a perfect opportunity to snap up an investment buy before these newly discovered talents become big names!

Tickets, priced £6.50 (£5.50 OAPs, under 16 free), are available from www.ichfevents.co.uk.

The Falkirk Herald has teamed up with Crafts for Christmas and Hobby Crafts to offer 10 lucky readers the chance to win a pair of tickets to the show.
