I have been talking about this on the blog since last year but now we finally have something for everyone to see and to sign up their support. The HCA website went live last night with information about endangered crafts, photos and videos. There’s an explanation of what the HCA hope to do to change the trend and support this important part of our heritage and how you can join in by signing up as a suporter (it’s free) telling your friends by email or on facebook or putting a button like this
or banner like this on your blog or website.
In the first 12 hours we have 35 people signed up on facebook, at that rate we would have 13,000 in a year, those sorts of numbers would really help us when we come to make grant applications or negotiate with government to show that people do care about heritage crafts. If you are on facebook you can join the facebook group and share it with your friends here. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Heritage-Crafts-Association/76521534812?ref=mf
