Being a member of the AFCI.UK has allowed me to grow so much as an independent designer. I have a new found confidence, that I havn't seen in myself since having my family and prolonged career break. Meeting and building relationships with industry experts and other like minded people at the Creative Exchanges weekend has been invaluable to me. I am really proud of how I have seized the chance to create career opportunities through the AFCI.UK. My email inbox has never been busier with interesting and exciting conversations. So if you are looking to progress with a career in the crafting industry, the AFCI.UK can definately open up any opportunity you are looking for Claire Newcombe – firstname.lastname@example.org

I joined the AFCI.UK to enhance my reputation as a business within the craft industry and to draw on the help and experience of the members within the association!

When you are running a business, it is important to be immersed in that world. As the owner of a craft business I count the AFCI.UK as a necessary ingredient so that I can know what is happening and connect when I want to, with other professionals. Plus we got some fab discounts at the Stitches show which went a long way to paying the membership fee! Good plan AFCI.UK.

There are a number of important reasons why Visage Textiles Ltd decided to join the AFCI.UK. From a purely commercial point of view, we consider that our profile and credibility as a manufacturer and distributor is enhanced by being a member of a trade organisation. Our company wants to engage with designers and potential customers and we can do these things through the AFCI.UK. Membership has brought further benefits such as access to industry-specific market research and access to international trade shows as a visitor and exhibitor.

OMG had it not been for the AFCI.UK I would never have found the supplier I spent hours on the internet looking for. One quick phone call would have sufficed!! Next time I will go straight to them for info on any supplier of crafts. Craig who dealt with my enquiry was a star! Thank you AFCI.UK for existing, you could have saved me hours!
