Create and Craft TV are the first retailer to launch Christmas this year. Kicking off the festive celebrations on Thursday 11th June with a complete line up of Christmas crafts ranging from Christmas cards to beaded baubles; knitted jumpers to fabric wreaths; jewelled bracelets to table placements – there is something for every crafter.
The jolly month of June is not usually associated with Christmas; many retailers launch their festivities around September time, however Create and Craft have taken an early approach with their Christmas event. Why? Well crafter’s are always one-step ahead of the market, in order to create their beautiful handmade gifts and Christmas cards, they need to start their crafting way in advance. Even if it is a small gift box, or a knitted jumper – crafting takes time, dedication and effort.
Create and Craft fully understand what their customer needs and when, with extensive research into the UK Craft market, we know that the main motives for Christmas crafting is to give unique gifts from the heart, making for charity and create memories to treasure. Create and Craft work with many brands that offer an Angel policy, meaning that crafters can use a specific brands/kits/bundles to create cards that can be used commercially in specified quantities, i.e for charity and fundraising. The C&C customer is keen to help others, combining their skill and passions to fundraise is a key driver behind their Christmas crafts. Charities estimate that £50m is raised for good causes through the sales of charity Christmas cards each year, supporting the crafters needs for supplies earlier through the year.
With the customer’s creative timeframe in mind, Create and Craft work hard all year round to bring a spectacular Christmas event in June, to inspire crafters with exciting demonstrations, fantastic festive projects and jolly deals to prepare them for a busy month of making! You can expect to see brands such as Tonic, Spellbinders, Janet Clare and Katy Sue. As well as new collections from Couture dies, TODO – a revolutionary papercrafting machine, and a mixture of wonderful knit and stitch kits. If you are a keen Christmas card maker, or an onlooker who always admires the handmade effort of others, you can all join in. Create and Craft will teach you everything you need to know.
