Craft Focus - April/May 2022 (Issue 90)

30 working hard on releasing new items all the time. Now we’re launching about three to four new kits per month. How would you advise a retailer who is interested in stocking your products? Our aim is to offer customers good retail experiences and establish new collaborations and partnerships. We’re ready to discuss and negotiate the best conditions for a potential customer, offering full support. All the conditions are discussed individually, establishing selling plans and attractive deals. We want to make any new client, a loyal client. What sets you apart from your competitors? We’re always looking for the most interesting and inspiring images in order to transform them into little pieces of art. Our pictures are colourful, with a lot of detail, we try to make the size of each kit appropriate, in order to reduce the time of stitching, using half cross and backstitch. We’re trying to make our charts very easy to follow, providing patterns with and without backstitch, including bigger and smaller sizes charts in one kit, in order to meet all customers preferences. Our famous thread holders are very comfortable, as the stitchers can keep the threads in order, this idea of a thread holder belongs to my father, the owner of Luca-S company. It’s kind of our distinctive feature. Do you visit any trade shows? Do you plan to visit any soon? We participate in different exhibitions, which take place in different regions: h+h Cologne, Germany; CHSI Stitches, UK; and Handmade Exhibitions in Kiev, Ukraine. What are you looking forward to most over the next year? We try to enrich our compilation with favourite topics and colour variety. We’re looking forward to working with new artists and designers in order to develop our range of articles. What new products can we expect from you in the future? Our aim is to expand our collection with Christmas, Easter, Halloween toys kits, Christmas stockings kits, baby records, landscape, flowers, seaside designs and more!
