Issue Cover

Craft Business  |  Jan/Feb 16  


Welcome to the first issue of Craft Business for 2016. We have a bumper issue for you which includes an 8-page preview of CHSI Stitches, including details of which companies will be exhibiting, a guide to the workshops, presentations and business seminars that will be available, plus all you need to know to get the most out of your visit. We also chat to Adam Elkins, sales and new business manager at ICHF Events about why CHSI Stitches is so successful after 41 years and what the future has in store for this popular event.

Dress making is huge thanks to shows like The Great British Sewing Bee and Wendy Gardiner, brand ambassador for Vogue Patterns, Butterick, McCall’s and Kwik Sew shares news of the latest trends. Meanwhile, Fiona Pullen offers her tips for successful business planning, and Rosie Slosek updates on the current status of the EU VAT legislation and how it effects small businesses.

A good retail display can make all the difference to increasing footfall and sales; Anna Blewett quizzes the experts on how to revamp your store. We also have news on Yarn Shop Day, which returns for a third year running to provide coverage and promotion for bricks and mortar yarn shops across the UK on April 30. Over 200 retailers took part last year and the event was a huge success with record numbers of customers coming in store on the day. Discover how you can get involved and make the most of this event.
