Celebrity Juice star, Leigh Francis (as Keith Lemon) has today...
It’s been interesting to see how the ‘new normal’ has slowly transitioned into our day to day lives. We’re now quite accustomed to joining a queue on our food shops, and whenever we leave the house the face masks and hand gel check has become as much as our routine as remembering our phone and keys. I hope your experience re-opening your store has been a positive one and we’d love to hear your experiences. You can email me at: email@example.com
It’s been very sad to hear of many trade show cancellations including Autumn Fair and the London Stationery Show. We do enjoy visiting the exhibition centres, reconnecting with companies, having a chat and sourcing new designs as we browse the aisles. We look forward to the hustle and bustle returning in 2021.
This issue we have the first in our two-part Christmas series. There are some wonderful designs to decorate the home and make for loved ones. We also have a focus on knitting and crochet, soft crafts and card-making. As well as this, there’s all the latest industry news and the newest craft book releases.
