The UK's largest cat charity is inviting knitters to make toys for animals in its care
As the year draws to a close, it’s time to turn our thoughts the busy show season ahead. There’s lots to inspire in this issue, including a sneak peak at some of the fantastic new products that will be making the headlines at the 42nd edition of CHSI Stitches in February.
We’ll also be checking out the latest developments from Creativeworld in Frankfurt and hopping across the pond to see what will be catching buyers’ eyes at Creativation in Phoenix.
Elsewhere, I caught up with Dominic Fleming, organiser of a brand-new trade show, Crafters’ World. On page 58, Dominic shares his thoughts on the UK’s creative industry and reveals how plans are shaping up for the show, which takes place in Coventry next September.
One final thought for 2019 – we’d like to wish all our readers a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year – we look forward to catching up with you in 2020.
