My Crafty New York Tour January 12, 2018 20:38
I’m going to New York next week! I'm so excited to go and meet loads of crafters and see all the best crafty destinations. My recent post on Instagram has got me a huge amount of recommendations for places to go and people to meet, so I’ve made a map with the places I want to go. If you know of somewhere I've missed, please do let me know either here or on IG so I can add them to my map. See the map here and all the destinations I've pinned to it here!
Everyone says that the States generally is the leader in the craft trends, but I think the UK is holding it's own. We may not have access to huge stores like Michaeals, but we do have Hobbycraft and an amazing wealth of online and real-life indie suppliers. Our makers and designers lead the trends in both techniques and designs, and thanks to Pinterest, Etsy and Instagram craft is now a global community.
So look out on Instagram for our Stories to see the tour of NYC as it unfolds! I land back in the UK the day before the Big Craft Swish - I have a one-in-one-out policy at the moment so if I buy anything there, I'll have to swish a load more stuff to make way for it here! Come along to the Swish and hear about the trip in person!
