THE CRAFT-CRAZED will find all things scrap-booking and card-making at Tamworth’s CraftAlive showcase.

Packed full of the best artists and teachers from across Australia, the event is sure to draw a crowd.

Stampin’ Up demonstrator Therese Azzopardi has been to the expo for the last five years.

“The benefit for me as a demonstrator is getting my name out there in volume,” she said.

“Doing the craft fair has been a huge win-win for me and the people who run it are amazing.

“I think it’s a great opportunity for Tamworth and I hope people continue to support it, without that we can’t keep having events like this.

“Why travel to Newcastle when we have it on our doorstep?”

Craft celebrities from Pauline’s Quilters World in Toowoomba and Catchy Crafts will also be on hand.
