Having just heard of the forthcoming closure of Craft Creations, I would like to take this opportunity of wishing Jenny and Paul all the very best for the future.
We will miss the quality items you have provided but understand that there comes a time to put ones feet up and relax.
Thank you again.

Hazel

Such sad news, its going to be hard to find and purchase all the excellent products our hosts supplied, was so easy having everything under the one roof so to speak. However all good things come to an end and i fully understand and respect Paul and Jennys decision, it must have been a very hard one to make.

Good luck for the future Jenny and Paul and if retiring enjoy and make the most of it.

And I shall miss plastic sleeves for the cardswemake and sell for Watton parish church. I have retired from Country Market, so don't make cards on the scale I once did. I shall miss crinkle cut, linen and pre cut apperture cards the most.
Thanks for years of excellent service. Enjoy your retirement.

Hi all,
Thanks for the good wishes.
It was the hardest and saddest decision we have ever had to make.
Thanks,
Paul.

You are not alone. I had a good friend, a butcher, who took over his fathers business and hoped his son would follow him, but the universal business rate and new health regs that meant they could no longer sell their famous cooked ham alongside fresh meat meant they could not make enough to keep going. The shop was too small for separate counters. The son works as a butcher for Tesco. Another friend, TV and radio, could not sell his thriving business when he retired due to the horrendous rise in business rates. Other small businesses in this little town have had to close for the same reason. Some have become betting shops and some coffee shops and a few charity shops, and others empty shops! We used to have seven butchers shops and one supermarket We now have just two independent butchers and one big supermarket and that after the town has more than doubled its population.
Best wishes for your future and thanks for many years great service. And thanks too to Chris for keeping the spammers in check.

I just wanted to add my thanks and good wishes to you all. I was quite new to card-making when I discovered Craft Creations. I started off with scrap-booking and moved on to card-making in order to use up stash left over from my scrap-booking. But I became hooked and soon needed more.

Thanks to you and your amazing variety of goods, and not forgetting the magazine, I was able to expand my interest and although I didn't succeed in all I tried I did give a go. Having all I needed in one place made it so much easier. I was quite successful with submitting my attempts to the challenges in the magazine, and this did encourage me to try new things.

Thank you and all the best.

Just found out about the closure of Craft Creations and agree with everything that has been said. I have so much CC products that I have bought over the years and I have not found anywhere else that sells such fabulous quality products. I will miss you all and the wonderful service you provided over the years. Angel
