March 24, 2009 – Northbrook, Ill.— With consumers clamoring to sales, clipping coupons and doing anything they can to save money, there has never been a better time to celebrate the upcoming Easter holiday the handmade way.
With the economy still under stress, a recent MSNBC report dubs crafting “the silver lining in a tough economy.” They report that while data is still be compiled for 2008, The Craft and Hobby Association reports that 2007 sales reached nearly $32 billion and that 57% of households report engaging in some form of crafting. The trend continues into 2009, with The CHA reporting $9.9 million in sales in January alone.
