The difference being that all the fish are knitted, crocheted and sequined. Visitors will be able to buy an array of fish, prawns, cockles and mussels off the counter and have them mounted and signed as original art pieces. There will also be a wall of framed tinned sardines and other fishy inspired products available throughout the show. The show will also feature leading textile artists including Isobel Hall, Stella Harding, the Royal School of Needlework and Sophie Digard in association with Selvedge.

With over 400 exhibitors at the London event selling everything a crafter desires: from a vast array of fabric to every type of sewing machine from all the leading brands; to every type of thread and knitting yarn; plus haberdashery, patterns, kits and more.
