Issue Cover

Craft Business  |  Dec 17  


Merry Christmas, well it is the December issue!
Although it does seem to come around earlier every year, we do have a packed magazine of goodies for you to enjoy this festive period.
I have to say that I was extremely happy by the amount of nominations that have flooded in for the Craft Business Awards 2018. All you need to know about the awards is in this issue.
This is always a busy time and it doesn’t slow down in the New Year either. We have previews for January’s Creativation, in Phoenix, and Creativeworld, in Frankfurt, and a special ticket giveaway!
We also have a great interview with former Dragons’ Den star and interior designer Kelly Hoppen – with some good advice for anyone in business or wanting to start.
With the online world ever expanding we take a look at a business woman who is going in the other direction and investing in a bricks-and-mortar store.
Holly Tucker, co-founder of Notonthehighstreet, has launched a new venture, Holly & Co.
And we also take a look back at 2017 to see who were the game changers who influenced the industry in the past 12 months.
I hope you enjoy reading this issue!
