Terms & Conditions

  • Membership runs from 1st January to 31st December, annually. The charge is fixed at £45, no matter what time of year you sign up. If you are upgrading from an Associate Member you will only pay the difference.
  • You must have completed the Quality Assessment in the past. If you have not, please sign up as an Associate Member and tick the box to become a Full Member, and we will make sure you’re included in the next round of assessments, which take place once a year in March.
  • You are responsible for keeping your profile information up to date and notifying us of changes to your business (address, what you make etc.)
  • In order to take part in the Christmas Craft Fair, you must be a member by 1st October. If in doubt, please contact us first.
  • We reserve the right to refuse membership to any individual or business, and completing the sign up and payment does not automatically guarantee membership. Should your membership be refused, you will be refunded in full.
  • Membership is non-refundable.


  • Renewals are not automatic. However, we will remind you by email before your membership expires so that you can renew via your online account page.
