Newton Aycliffe-based global craft supplier, Crafter’s Companion, is inviting customers to take part in its 14th birthday celebrations.
The ten-day event, which will take place from October 17 to 27, marks the anniversary of when founder and creative director, Sara Davies MBE, made her TV debut on shopping channel Ideal World with the company’s first product, the Enveloper.
To celebrate the occasion, Crafter’s Companion has organised a number of workshops, classes and demonstrations at its Aycliffe, Evesham and Chesterfield stores.
Shoppers can also enjoy exclusive discounts, double points and free gifts instore and online, as well as free postage and packaging in the UK.
The company has organised Facebook Lives to provide its social media followers with inspirational project ideas and offers, and is partnering with Create & Craft to launch a number of brand-new products throughout the ten day event.
Davies – who earlier this year became the youngest-ever ‘dragon’ on the BBC Two hit programme Dragons’ Den – said: “We have had a phenomenally successful year so far.
“We recently employed our 200th member of staff and it’s been a record year for turnover. The company was named International Business of the Year at the Federation of Small Business’ national awards ceremony and we made it onto the Sunday Times Export Track 100 list for the fourth time.
“None of this success would be possible if it weren’t for our team of hardworking people, who go above and beyond for the company on a daily basis, our fantastic local community and of course our loyal, dedicated customers.
“Our birthday is such an important event because we want to give something back to everyone who has supported us over the years and each year it gets bigger and better than ever. I really hope that everyone can get involved and join in the celebrations.”
Crafter’s Companion’s birthday events will run from October 17-27. To book a class at the Aycliffe store, please visit www.crafterscompanion.co.uk/page/store/aycliffe-store/ or call the team on 01388 743763.
