At Folksy we’re always looking for ways to superpower makers, and something very exciting just launched that we wanted to tell you about.
Craft giants Hobbycraft have teamed up with PR specialists Untld Project – supported by Pedddle and Folksy (that’s us!) – to create Hobbycraft Plus, a new subscription package designed for passionate makers and crafting entrepreneurs.
Hobbycraft Plus costs just £80 a year and gives you:
- 15%* off Hobbycraft in store and online
- FREE NEXT DAY delivery over £25 (saving £5.95 each time)
- 3 free seminars a year to help grow your craft business
- £80 off Untld Project’s Virtual PR Academy
- 40% off Folksy Plus annual membership (saving £30 a year) – or 20% off our monthly membership
- 30% off Pedddle membership
- And more!
*Excludes digital craft machines, printers, sewing machines, Made to Measure Patterns, workshops, subscriptions and gift cards.
We’re really proud to be partnering with Hobbycraft on this package, custom-made to cover crafters’ needs: from buying supplies to opening an online shop, selling at craft fairs and learning all things PR. Whether you’re making to sell, you’ve got a growing craft business or you’re a passionate maker wanting to unlock extra value, this new subscription service gives you that little bit of extra support.
Working alongside partners across the craft sector
“Way back in 2008 when we launched Folksy, our strapline was: ‘Glue, sketch, carve, sew, solder, sculpt, buy, sell, go!’ It felt fun, exciting and spoke to the things we saw our users doing – the very same things that Hobbycraft makes happen. The ideas, supplies and advice available in Hobbycraft stores is exhilarating and inspiring for so many.
“Hobbycraft gets people making and we see Folksy as part of that same creative journey: you make, we help you sell. That’s why we’re so excited to be collaborating with Hobbycraft to superpower makers and artists, and support the huge creative energy of UK makers. We’re stronger together! Let’s do this, let’s go!”
James Boardwell, founder & CEO of Folksy
Untld Project is a PR, marketing and social media agency specialising in supporting creative, crafty and independent brands.
Founder Nerrisa Pratt says: “We are beyond excited to be partnering with a craft giant we have admired for years. Our passion for supporting small craft businesses and celebrating makers is at the heart of everything we do, so Hobbycraft Plus is the perfect fit for us as it is designed to do just that. We’ll be offering Hobbycraft Plus members access to exclusive seminars on PR, marketing, social media and more. Every seminar has been designed with small businesses in mind, helping them to flourish and grow.”
Pedddle is the ultimate cheerleader of the market community. As a directory, it lists the creative, independent markets happening in local towns and cities, champions the small businesses that sell there and helps customers find them.
Nicki Capewell, founder of Pedddle and Tresstle says: “Hobbycraft Plus is the perfect offering to support hobbyist crafters into make-to-sell business owners, and we’re thrilled to be part of this journey. Pedddle is still a very young company compared to Hobbycraft, and the thought that we could work together and support one another is huge for us!”
