Christmas 2020 is going to be a good one. Of course it is, the year owes us that! Feeling festive and fabulous, we have part two of our Christmas special showcasing cards, make-your-own advent calendars, Christmas decorations and more. We also have a sugarcraft feature if you’re going to make your own delicacies; and a craft kits feature with fabulous ‘boxsets’ which make perfect gifts!
As well as our ever-popular brand spanking new feature, we also have a focus on glues and adhesives and keen sewers will enjoy our sewing and stitching special!
I chat exclusively to Kirsten Burke from The Modern Calligraphy Company about how, since lockdown, sales of calligraphy products have rocketed, you can see more of the company’s products in our Art Supplies feature.
With so many trade shows being digital and with the rise of social media, we all can recognise the importance of going online. So, this issue we have excellent advice from the Department of International Trade about how to gain support, encouragement to take the plunge online and how to secure trade deals overseas. There’s help out there if you are wary of taking those first steps.
I hope the final quarter of 2020 hears tills ringing, footfall increasing and most importantly health and happiness.
