Tony Sheridan, Chief Operating Officer explained:
“Create and Craft have seen phenomenal growth in the UK over the past 3 years, we are now the No1 retailer for Paper Craft products in the UK, and the UK’s biggest retailer of sewing machines. So going to the USA was the next logical step, it is such a huge, vibrant and competitive market. Through my role in the Craft and Hobby Association I have always been aware of the amazing craft talent and brands in America: I am excited to work with them, and to bring them back to the UK.”
“We have grown and built up a number of craft brands in the UK, some of our own and also other people’s; whilst these brands are still hugely successful, our customers have been asking for more innovation, real new-news, and now they have it. Create and Craft has been, and continues to be instrumental in launching new brands and products making them all household names within the craft industry and as such we continue to work to help companies, however big or small, launch product to a wider audience and drive consumer awareness..”
“This is great for customers, the more brands and talented guests there are competing for time on Create and Craft, the more vibrant and inspiring we can be as a channel. It is tough at the top, not everyone will like the extra competition but the great brands and talent will revel in it.”
“Watch and wait, because the UK and European brands are working their magic too, with some amazing product from our current brands as well as over 20 new Brand launches planned over the coming months, but that is more new-news for another day”.
