The ‘make do and mend’ attitude isn’t new, but there has been a huge renaissance in Britain over the past year. The country has experienced the worst weather on record this summer and people are choosing to stay in and delve into their creative side.

Events such as the Queen’s Jubilee have encouraged everyone to go back to basics and craft making has become hugely popular again. Handmade bunting, customised vintage clothes and jewellery are all the rage and Britain’s craft industry is thriving because of it.

New haberdashery website Love Craft has been launched to meet the high demand from people searching for craft materials and is designed for people who love making crafts. The team behind Love Craft take the time to find unique and unusual items that are difficult to find elsewhere.

Love Craft is a family business run by a father and his four children who all share a passion for handmade crafts and regularly research for unusual items that no one else stocks.

The Kersh family originally started with a bead shop in 1997 that has grown into a thriving business. They noticed a growing demand for craft materials so dedicated a small corner of their shop to haberdashery, buttons, ribbons and all things sewing related.

The demand for such items has grown so significantly that the family wanted to extend their supplies further and introduce more unusual materials. The Love Craft website has allowed the Kersh family to stock a vast range of craft materials for its growing customer base and they have themes such as ‘Best of British’ that have been a huge success.

Father Harvey Kersh commented: “The new website has allowed us to extend our selection of craft materials to a whole new level. We simply ran out of space in our shop so we thought the best idea would be to go online and we wanted our materials to be available to anyone in Britain to buy. All of the items have been handpicked by me and my children, who are equally as passionate about handmade crafts as I am.”
