Crafts are apparently no longer 'creative' in the UK

I'm sorry, usually I avoid anything remotely political on this blog (I save the rants for Facebook lol!) but this distresses me. Apparently Crafts are no longer considered part of the 'creative industries.'

There is an official petition, if you'd like more info. Have a read of it and see what you think.

Clicking on the link only takes you to the petition, if you want to sign you have to do it separately.

I apologise to anyone who thinks this is inappropriate, please ignore it in that case!

love Mags B x

Hadn't heard that crafts are no longer creative, mind you, nothing this government decrees surprises me any more. Petition duly signed, thanks for the link!
