Then on p15, brand & marketing consultant Clare Yarwood-White offers her expert advice how to develop a successful brand for your craft business. We also have a sneak preview of the popular Creativeworld, Paperworld and Christmasworld trade shows, which bring the very latest and best products and trends from around the world to Frankfurt in January next year. These fairs are set to be even bigger and better than before; find out more on p24.

October 17 saw sewing and fabric shops all over the UK celebrate Sew Saturday, the new campaign to promote bricks and mortar outlets. The event was a huge success and we discover how many of you got involved on p19.
