Through the local grapevine I heard about the recently-formed Nottingham Craft Mafia, which is part of the worldwide Craft Mafia family. It’s exciting to know that there are creative people making lots of nice things here in Nottingham. On Saturday I had a peek at the shop they have opened to sell their wares – it was well-presented and welcoming, and I really hope it will work out well for them in these tough times. Opening the shop at this time of year should really help – there were lots of items for sale that would make great Christmas presents.
And there’s a Craft Mafia in Manchester now – must investigate next time I’m visiting.
