Hello my lovely crafters,
This morning you may see an announcement going out about what I’ll be doing in the next few months within the craft industry. So, I want to use this as an opportunity to let you all know what is happening – and all the excitement that means for you!
First of all, let me say that I’m so excited that from the start of August I’ll be going back to my entrepreneurial roots (which I started out doing many moons ago with Tattered Lace…who remembers that far back?) and setting up my own craft company again! I have so many ideas and products I can’t wait to start sharing with you about this new venture – I know you will just love some of the things my team and I have been planning, I’m making sure of it!
Many of you will know me for Tattered Lace, but now I’m ready to bring you a new brand where my design looks to the future – ultimately, this will be my last big venture in the craft world. I want to give you more education with this new brand, more interaction and, of course, innovative and fun craft goodies along the way too. It’s time for me to spend more time teaching you, whilst at the same time sharing our passion of craft with a new brand.
I also want to let you know that I will still very much be part of the wonderful Create & Craft family too! I’ll still be on the channel with our fabulous Tattered Lace products, guiding my team to make the best possible designs for you and all the other fun parts of my ‘day job’ – if you can really even call this passion of mine, a job!
With this exciting new challenge, after 17 fantastic years with the channel, I am so pleased to not be saying goodbye forever…Create & Craft will be supporting my new venture on the channel later this year too, meaning you won’t miss out on a single thing! There will be more details of what all this looks like coming very soon. I just want to say again how grateful I am to Create & Craft for the support they have given in helping me fulfil this passion and dream of mine.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope you can join me on this very exciting next step in my craft career. I wouldn’t be able to do any of this if it wasn’t for each of your ongoing support and loyalty to our brands. From the bottom of my heart, thank you and please if you can, watch this space for further information coming soon! Please don’t think of this as goodbye, think of this as our next chapter!
Stay safe, love and hugs, Stephanie. Xxx
