It’s no surprise that crafting continues to be one the fastest growing interests worldwide, or that manufacturers of relevant tools and materials, new and established, have responded to that surge.

Crafting covers a wide range of activities, from scrapbooking, jewellery and cardmaking to decorating, chocolate making, and needlework. Benefits for crafters include relaxation, personal growth, improved hand-eye coordination and mental health, a sense of community and business prospects. Above all, it’s fun!

With crafters spoilt for choice by a vast range of materials including fabrics, papers, plastics, glues and paints, and tools from the traditional handheld scissors and pliers to sophisticated electronic scanners, printers and cutters, the future of crafting looks secure.
