Crafts are apparently no longer 'creative' in the UK

I'm sorry, usually I avoid anything remotely political on this blog  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

Oh dear, the Government of my country tends to have what my daughter calls 'brain-farts'!!! Thank you for spreading the word, my lovely, I appreciate it!

Thank you for your kind comments on my blog, too!

with love from wet, windy Hertfordshire,

Oh my...I long stopped paying attention to what another person or group considers art. The way I see it, ART IS A STORY. How we share our stories, is completely up to us.
Pretty simple, huh. ;)

And by the way, Dianne, this is your blog. You can or post whatever you want. Thank you for sharing this with us.
