The Original Team Back at the Helm…


Highlight Crafts Ltd – owned by Karl Shaw, Stephanie Weightman and Zoe Anslow have taken back ownership of Crafting Live and will be running upcoming events in association with Create & Craft TV


DERBYSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM – AUGUST 23, 2021: The original team behind the Crafting Live events will be back in the driving seat of the ever-growing popular events – starting from Peterborough in October 2021.

The recently formed company, Highlight Crafts Ltd have taken over the ownership of the events and will be running them in association with Create & Craft TV – meaning customers can still expect the same offering of VIP experiences, goody bags, competitions, celebrity guests and much more – not to mention the free make & take sessions at each of the three events across the UK.

“To be focusing fully on the Crafting Live events again makes me so excited for what is to come,” Stephanie said. “We started these shows over 10 years ago with a small marquee and lots of passionate crafters. Fast forward to now and the original owners are back and have so many wonderful offerings and plans to keep these shows at the award-winning level they deserve to be for everyone.”

Highlight Crafts Ltd, will be the main contact point for any further exhibitor bookings, and customers can still book tickets for the events on the website now.

“Thank you to Create & Craft for their support in working on the events with us. I look forward to welcoming all our lovely crafters back into our events and making them the best they can be,” she added.

Frances Busby, Managing Director of Create & Craft said: “We are so excited to be working in partnership with Highlight Crafts to bring our customers future Crafting Live events. Each one is a priceless experience for our team to meet everyone, share inspiration, and entertain with our live stage. We look forward to working with the Highlight Crafts team for what is looking to be a busy events schedule!”
