CRAFT Alive has something for everyone, says event manager Rachael Karpman.

The three-day craft extravaganza was held at the Bendigo Exhibition Centre at the weekend.

The event showcased hand-finished products, do it yourself products, craft supplies, homewares and creative workshops.

Ms Karpman said the event was a success and "super busy'' from Saturday. 

"Friday's are quieter, I think we had between 1000 and 1500 people but today (Saturday) we've had already passed 2000 which is nice," she said.

MasterChef champion of 2013, and former Bendigo resident Emma Dean, hosted a class at the event.

"This year we have four shows in the one building - so a regular Craft Alive and then we have Stitch which is needle craft, Pages which is paper craft and scrapbooking, and then we have Treats which is a cake decorating show," Ms Karpman said.

Ms Karpman said the event attracted people from all walks of life.

"Even the boys find stuff that they love," she said.

"The husbands don't think they'll like it  but there's a lot of candy and furniture, cool bar sets, made out of big drums that are amazing. 

"So there's something for everyone."
