The idea behind Cambridge Craft Festival is to help to promote crafters and makers and their handmade businesses.
Behind every small business is someone with a passion for what they do. Owning a small business is not easy and there is so much work that goes on behind the scenes. Small businesses don't have a marketing department, or an IT hotline, or an ever ready stationery cupboard, or a big sales team. Quite often its 1 or 2 people doing everything, and at all hours!
We want to shout out about these businesses and let them showcase the products that they are passionate about. These aren't mass produced products that you can buy off the shelf or order on Amazon. These are hand crafted, thoughtful products that are as unique as the crafter that makes them.
They say that when you buy from a small business an actual person does a little happy dance. And trust me, we do!
And on 4th September 2021 we will be running a schedule of Instagram Lives throughout the day. This is where you will get to meet some of the vendors and get to know the people behind the crafts and learn more about what they do and their handmade products.
