Craft Buddy announces details of trade open days

Published on: 13th May 2019

Craft Buddy is inviting trade customers, existing and new, to open days on Friday 28th June, Saturday 29th June and Monday 1st July.

Trade visitors get to grips with the Craft Buddy ranges at a previous open day.

Visitors to the events, which will take place at the company’s Buckinghamshire headquarters, will benefit from exclusive viewings of the new Crystal Art, Pretty Gets Gritty Mixed Media and Craft Buddy Signature collections, as well as previews of new Christmas lines.

The Craft Buddy expert team will be on hand to demonstrate the wide portfolio of craft collections, and attendees can have a go at Crystal Art, Die Cutting, Stamping and more. Free workshops with a team of experienced and professional crafters will also be on offer, to allow customers to get a feel for the new ranges and see first-hand what makes the brands resonate with their consumer base.

The open days will run from 11am to 4pm, and lunch and refreshments will be served throughout the day.

Gary Wadhwani, co-director at Craft Buddy, commented: “We look forward to welcoming existing and potential customers to our headquarters to showcase our amazing new ranges planned for the second half of 2019. As well as winning product formats and firm favourites, we have some great Christmas lines ready to launch, spanning a range of price points, which will be sure-fire hits with toy and craft retailers alike.”

To reserve your space at one of the open days, please email, stating your preferred attendance date, the names of the persons attending (maximum of three per company) and your company details.
