about creativ festival

Creativ Festival (formerly Creative Sewing and Needlework Festival) since 1988 has been offering an unbeatable combination of tantalizing shopping and dynamic instruction. Designed to intrigue, involve, excite, stimulate and celebrate the art of creating your own personal style.


It's a comprehensive interactive marketplace and Canada's largest consumer show dedicated to sewing, knitting, quilting, beading, needlework, scrapbooking, diy decorating, crafting, fibre, textile and paper arts and more. Creativ Festival is held twice a year in Toronto, Ontario Canada, every April and October, with two distinctly different formats.

The show floor is buzzing and where you will browse, feel, touch and buy the newest fabrics, fibres, papers, beads, notions, tools, books, kits, patterns, equipment and more. It's infused with dynamic attractions that change every year.

Our world-class conference, only in the fall
is where for 5 days you will get up-close-and-personal hands-on instruction from innovative designers, skilled artisans and industry experts. There's something for everyone whether beginner, seasoned pro or even if you've never crafted before!

Whether you come to Creativ for a shopping excursion, to meet and learn from our stars, or be inspired by the work of dazzling artisans… Creativ Festival is comprehensive, creative and fun!
