You may now by well have heard the news that Kanban Crafts Ltd has gone into administration and will cease trading shortly.
was very saddened to hear this, particularly when I consider the impact
on all of the people involved who have lost their jobs. Kanban and
their staff have always gone the extra mile for me, which is one of the
reasons, along of course with the huge popularity of the products, why
Kanban has been one of my biggest suppliers over the past few years. I have been asked about the impact on Foil Play, so I'd like to stress that I do stock a very wide range of craft products (over 9,500 different lines now!) and that my business will continue. Sadly, it isn't the first time that one of my suppliers has gone into liquidation, the beauty of being a small fish in the crafting sea is that I have flexibility to adapt and survive and I will continue to do just that. I spent the day in Shipley yesterday at the closing down sale, and it's safe to say there won't be a shortage of Kanban products at Foil Play any time soon. Realistically, it will take probably a few weeks for me to list it all, but I can promise that there are plenty of bargains in the pipeline - watch this space!
