Petition against the Reclassification of Crafts as Manufacture

There is a Government proposal to reclassify crafts as part of the manufacturing industry, and as craftspeople I think we would all agree that crafts have far more in common with the Arts than manufacture!

If you agree, please would you consider signing this petition to ask the Government to rethink:

This issue has been taken up by the main Embroiderers' Guild (see their News article), and the more signatures on the petition, the more likely this is to get noticed.
