DIY Show, the triumph of "Do it yourself"

This weekend the Madrid fans' fair was held in Madrid "do it yourself", he DIY Show. An unavoidable appointment space for lovers of handmade, well-made, curious things, said in the North. Decoesfera could not miss an event full of creativity, inspiration and new techniques.

This is what we have seen in the 6th edition of the DIY Show.

Hotel Silken Puerta de América, 12, oo hours of Friday, November 20. The idea was to be the first to enter the fair and thus be able to speak with the exhibitors, the artisans of the workshops and the creators of the event, Laura Dávila and Belén Díaz-Urgorri. Thanks to Inés and Adriana de Comunicación, we were able to chat with Laura and Belén for a little while, but the rest was impossible, since from the early hours of the morning the visitors of the fair were waiting for not to miss the news and news. fair bargains.

So I decided to become another fan and have a scary time between the stands. This edition has hosted more than a hundred exhibitors divided by themes: crafts, work and sewing, gastronomy, moms and babies, DIY and decoration, DIY3.0 and wellness.

We have been struck by brands as powerful as Bezoya, Home Business School or Enfemenino and Mía magazines are, among others, sponsors of the event and bet on this trend, which, judging by the amount of people (I insist, a working Friday, at 12.00) swarmed from one stand to another, consulting, choosing and chatting with the exhibitors .

We have seen, not only professional stores and products, with their more than 150 workshops, live demonstrations and masterclassbut also the bloggers and instagramers, which jumps from the screen to real life. Too craftsmen that offer their works (they are works and some works of art and crafts)

I recognize that I was going to buy, both for my new hobby the decoupage, beautiful rice papers and napkins with original and vintage prints phenomenal price, as for my other recognized passion, chalk painting, one of the bargains of the fair was the chalk paint.

It's an expensive painting, but it spreads a lot, so when I saw the offers I did not hesitate to take several boats of different powdered colors and white to transform them and make my own shades, you will see the results in the gifts Upcycling of this Christmas.

Also interesting are the kits, the stencil or stencil templates and the different product houses such as the Styl Patch, which, sincerely, I did not buy, because I had already spent everything, but for the next fair I sure do, because I always want to, but there is so much to choose from We have to prioritize.

I recently resumed knitting, what at school we called pompously Pretechnology and our mothers and grandmothers, "labors", in fact the same nun who taught my mother, had to deal with the next generation, so I also took the opportunity to take some wool for a hat and a scarf for my dwarves, who the cold is here.

Today I will not apologize for the low quality of photos, asking them to be good would be a miracle, my eyes were going behind each stand and each workshop ...

In summary, another edition of ** DIY Show ** that leaves us with a great taste, but looking forward to the next edition.
