Issue Cover

Craft Business  |  May-15  


Welcome to the May issue of Craft Business magazine. This month we caught up with BBC commissioning editor of The Great British Sewing Bee to find out why she commissioned the show? Plus some of the industry's biggest names reveal how they've benefited from its success – see page 9.
Also in this issue, household name Kirstie Allsopp offers her advice to retailers who haven't yet embraced the internet and reveals her latest craft venture on page 7.
Knitting retailers should turn to page 15 as Russell Morris, board member of the UKHKA, discusses the constant threat the industry faces. Or meet Deramores' senior buyer as she reveals more about the company and their purchasing strategy on page 13.
As always, we are packed full of the latest trend info and industry advice. Discover this summer's biggest jewellery trend set to take the market by storm on page 19, as well as the latest customising techniques on page 21 and the rise of piping on page 27.
Another area of craft that is quickly gaining in popularity is mixed media art. Check out page 23 and discover the benefits of stocking a wide range of art materials in your shop.
