Founded in 2013 by husband & wife, Terry & Sue Lennon, both entrepreneurs with a passion in consumer products; Sue, with her art & design prowess and all round love for the craft & hobby industry and Terry’s innovation, business acumen and love of challenging himself to break new boundaries. Their son, Nigel Lennon, later joined the company as Creative Director, bringing with him a wealth of experience gained in the Arts & Crafts sector and already a leading figure within the industry.
The Lennon family has a rich history in consumer products, dating back to 1958 with the opening of one of the first supermarkets, ‘Lennon’s’, in the northwest of England. This was the start of a series of new businesses, from commercial venues to the leisure industry, to present day. What has always been key in each company, and is still true today, is that each business is operated with family values of respect, honesty and fairness being the cornerstone of the company.
We at 'CC' believe crafting is a social hobby, meant for sharing and enjoyment by all and that is reinforced by the company name. The business itself, is a consortium of leading UK & International Designers and Manufacturers, working together to bring you the very best in crafting products.
Our team has worked with leading Global Brands in various categories of licensed and non-licensed products in the FMCG arena. They have been hand-picked for their passion and expertise within the design industry and all our products have been designed in-house by them.
We also work with retailers & factories to produce OEM products based on their requirements and specification.
