Craft Business Magazine Jan/Feb 2015 Back Issue

View Reviews   |   Write Review FREE Craft Business is more than just a B2B magazine; it is an industry institution that for more than 12 years has uncovered the latest trade launches and sales trends, while offering business advice aimed directly at the specialist craft and hobby retailer.

Published eight times a year and supported by our popular online resource, CraftBusiness.com – the magazine covers all markets relevant to its readership including papercraft; stitching and haberdashery; jewellery and beading; knitting; general arts and crafts; and media, digital and online information. In-depth features exploring profit opportunities across the industry are complemented by advice from retail experts, comments from market leaders, and fresh perspectives from retailers themselves. Drawing on the experiences of these diverse voices, Craft Business reflects the challenges facing today's craft retailers and offers inspiration, innovation and support for their growth.

In addition to the magazine, back in 2012 Craft Business was able to take advantage of its position in the market and launched the only annual directory for the Craft & Hobby industry, comprehensively listing companies in the industry in one easy-to-use guide, available in both print and online.

Issue Cover

Craft Business  |  Jan/Feb 2015  


Welcome to the first issue of the year and a happy new to you all! In this issue you will notice a few changes to the content of the magazine, such as the expansion of our knitting section, which now includes crochet to reflect this rapidly growing area of the market – check out page 24 to discover why crochet has become such a well-established craft.

This issue also contains our 8-page CHSI show preview (page 10), containing all you need to know about this year's show, which companies are exhibiting and what they have in store for you. CHSI is also celebrating its 40th Birthday – Happy Birthday CHSI!

In addition, if you have ever wondered how big name brands such as Not on the High Street got to where they are today, turn to page 20 for an exclusive interview with founders Sophie and Holly. And on page 19, Katherine Paterson, customer development director for Hobbycraft explains how to adapt your business to suit a changing marketplace.

As you flick through the magazine you will also notice another new section for baking and sugarcraft on page 38. We kick things off with an overview of the cake sector and why you should be capitalising on this area of the market – stay tuned for more interesting features on how cake can make you money.
