Review NADELWELT Karlsruhe 2023
With an increase in visitors of over 50 percent, it was clear to see at NADELWELT:
Handicrafts will continue to be one of the most popular trend themes in 2023.
More than 10,000 visitors were drawn to the Karlsruhe exhibition centre from 31 March to 2 April to indulge their passion - textile handicrafts. Some came to find out about trends and new products and to stock up on the latest fabrics, yarns, wool and accessories. Some came to admire the numerous textile exhibitions, which were presented in the light-flooded hall like in a huge art gallery. And some came to get active themselves in a variety of courses and hands-on activities. Most visitors, however, came to NADELWELT to experience all the things at once.
121 international exhibitors represented the impressive diversity of the needlework industry and were on hand to offer visitors advice and assistance. The opportunity to feel fabrics and yarns, test sewing machines live, experience colours with your own eyes and network with like-minded people in conversations made for a very special shopping atmosphere that goes far beyond the possibilities of online shopping. Renowned course instructors taught new skills in 32 courses on the separate seminar level, which was complemented by numerous other workshops in the exhibition hall. Renowned textile artists showed contemporary and traditional works in 29 exhibitions. A special highlight were the numerous guided tours during which the artists themselves described and explained their work - a unique opportunity to approach the exhibited works in a very direct and personal way.
NADELWELT Karlsruhe - again in 2023 3 days of pure textile handicrafts on a total area of more than 10,000 sqm.
