I am trying to set up my own craft business called - Crafty Kiz. I am wanting to do my lifelong dream of owning my own craft business. - http://www.craftykiz.co.uk
I am wanting to get people interested in crafts again and handmade items. Who doesn't like the thought of a handmade item as a special gift for someone......
I am needing to raise the funds to help me fulfil this dream and to become a successful little business.
In return I am hoping to get all ages interested in crafts and to hopefully hold my own craft classes and clubs for all ages to learn how to make items from a wide selection of crafts and be able to pass on their knowledge to others.
I believe everyone should have the chance to have a hobby they enjoy and why not have it as crafting.
I am wanting to hold free classes in community centres for all to join as well as private classes of others and to eventually be able to set up private craft parties for people who want to enjoy doing crafts with friends/relatives around and have the chance to be able to buy products/items needed to carry on the hobby afterwards.
There is nothing worse than isolation within communities and with this I am hoping to try and reduce that by setting up classes for people to come and just socialise with each other - watch people create things if they do not want to join in etc.
I have my own online e-commerce store which will be posting out orders Internationally but I am wanting more than that for my business I want to get the local communities involved and youth programmes involved so there is something for everyone to do.
I also make personalised keepsake items as well as commission items - if someone wants a specific thing making I make it.
I am limited with money to be able to expand my little business to complete my goals (above).
