I’m really excited about my first issue of Craft Focus magazine. For the last five years, I was editor of Gift Focus – our sister title so I know many of you already. For those of you I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting yet, I look forward to working with you. I’m sure you’ll all agree it is such a friendly industry and I have already been warmly welcomed, so thank you!
This issue we provide a full report from CHSI Stitches. This includes an exclusive interview with Linda Jones, author of The Craft Report. Her research is much respected in the industry and is a great insight into what will trend in the year ahead.
We have a focus on Needlecraft, Father’s Day, designs perfect for the summer months and a few pages dedicated to the best of British! As always, we have our brand spanking new feature showcasing new and exciting products on the market.
During this strange and uncertain time, craft is such a positive source of entertainment, relaxation and well-being. So please, when safe, visit your local haberdasheries and stores, keep supporting the industry and keep crafting!
Rachel Westall, Editor
