Decorators in the south-west of the UK seized the opportunity to visit major suppliers in January when the Print & Stitch roadshow dropped anchor in the naval city of Plymouth for a day.

Print & Stitch, whose next stop is in Newcastle on 16 February, brings together companies such as TheMagicTouch, Goccopro, Stocks Sewing Machines, Wilcom, Madeira, eTrader and Golden Finishes for regional shows across the country – “Ideal for busy printers and embroiderers who want to keep up with the latest innovations but struggle to take time out from their businesses to visit individual suppliers across the country.”

Demonstrations in Plymouth included the new T.One and T.Foil transfer papers from TheMagicTouch, the digital screen print maker from Goccopro, as well as the latest digitising software from Wilcom.

Stocks showed the ZSK Sprint and Brother PR1050X embroidery machines in action, while Jayne Barlow from Madeira was able to share her thread expertise and production experience with visitors. Jeremy Aston-Phillips from Golden Finishes was also on hand to discuss badges, flags and other items, while visitors to the eTrader stand could check out the company’s new promotional products websites.

The shows are free to visit and take place at various venues across the UK throughout 2017. Register for a free ticket on the Print & Stitch website.
