National Craft and Design Month May 2012

Lana's Cards and Crafts is supporting Craft and Design Month May 2012 - a brand new initiative designed to raise awareness of the enormous amount of creative talent we have in this country. 
Craft and Design Month is a ‘not for profit’ initiative launched by craft&design  magazine.  The magazine’s editor, Angie Boyer, explains: There are many thousands of craftsmen and women who manufacture and sell their products in the UK and to the overseas markets who are completely overlooked by newspapers reporting on the demise of domestic manufacturing. 

“In fact, the Crafts Council has reported that there are around 35,000 contemporary craftsmen and women with a collective turnover of around £1billion.  Crafts is incredibly important to the economy but also to our wellbeing and way of life.  If we don’t use the talents of people on our doorstep, they will disappear forever.  We hope that by shining the spotlight on the skills of craftsmen and women throughout the country, the general public will think twice about who to go to when they need something for the home.   If we succeed in that, Craft and Design Month will have served its purpose.”

Thank you to everyone who came along to the Molly's Marvellous Market in Sneinton yesterday. I had a really enjoyable day, and it was great to see some familiar faces and meet some new people too!
