On Thursday 6th May, Cricut UK & Ireland marketing manager, Kathy, will join Hobbycraft and a panel of experts to inspire crafters to make their creativity their income with the help of Cricut machines, tools and accessories and the Design Space app.

The webinar forms part of Hobbycraft’s ongoing ‘Custom Crafting Live’ event which aims to help customers learn everything they need to know about Cricut.

Crafters will also hear from Cricut ambassador Emma Jewell, Megan Birnie of Lemon and Bear, and Emma Simmonds of Nurture and Cheer.

The webinar starts at 12:30pm and will last for one hour. Each panellist will share their journey to small business ownership with the help of their Cricut machines. They’ll also divulge the top tips and tricks they’ve learned while running their business.

Hobbycraft content marketing manager, Aisha Cluitt, will also be on hand throughout the webinar to help show how Cricut and Hobbycraft can help you in your quest to starting your very own small business.

Up to 500 crafters with a keen eye for Cricut are able to secure a spot through the online booking page and tickets cost £1, with all proceeds donated to Hobbycraft’s charity partner Together For Short Lives.

Meet the Hosts

Throughout the Custom Crafting Live event, Hobbycraft has been offering a range of one-to-one workshops, craft-along’s, product offers and project ideas to inspire customers to embrace a new craft or perfect an existing one.

With searches for ‘Cricut’ on the Hobbycraft Ideas Hub increasing by 452% in January – March 2021 compared to the same time last year, the personalisation phenomenon is continuing to grow.

Some of the most in-demand Cricut trends for 2021 that Hobbycraft has observed are:


As we look ahead to a ‘summer of celebration’, many keen crafters are looking to transform their home and wardrobe for the new season. Cricut offers a creative approach to upgrading old clothes and home accessories and gives them a new lease of life, whether that be designing a personalised flower vase or an Infusible Ink T-shirt.

Home Organisation

The recent launch of the BBC show ‘Sort Your Life Out’ has inspired the nation to start reorganising and decluttering their homes. Through thoughtful storage personalisation, you can add a modern touch to your home décor whilst keeping the interior clean and tidy.

Hobbycraft’s Ideas Hub has several personalisation Cricut projects perfect for both beginners and advanced crafters, including How to Personalise a Trolley for your Kitchen with your Cricut Machine and How to Make Storage Jar Labels.

Sticking to the Brief

Stickers have become an increasingly popular form of personalisation. They can be customised to suit every person’s need, whether it’s a shopping list, urgent to-do list or simple reminders.

Personalised stickers are also a creative approach to designing a personalised notebook or planner, and are a great way to keep the kids excited for when they enter the new school term.
