Crafter’s Companion Partners With Silversurfers
By Emily Peagram 16 May 2020
Crafter’s Companion is partnering with Silversurfers for a series of LIVE craft-a-long shows to help entertain their community during lockdown.
Silversurfers is the UK’s largest online community of people aged 50 with 275,000 website members and 907,000 Facebook members. The collaboration with Crafter’s Companion offers the Silversurfers members engagement with the weekly show live on the Silversurfers Facebook page every Friday at 9 am. With the current crisis, Silversurfers is even busier than ever with members self-isolating. The Silversurfers team are liaising with members to provide comfort and company both on their Forums and Chat and on their Facebook page.
Sara Davies MBE, founder at Crafter’s Companion, said: “We are so thrilled to be working with Silversurfers and bringing a crafting experience to their community. A lot of people are turning to craft at the moment as a way to escape and relax. With the live shows, we can engage with the audience too, which really adds to the community spirit of Silversurfers.”
Martin Lock Silversurfers Chief Executive said: “We have been absolutely delighted at the huge response from our Silversurfers members with thousands enjoying Sara’s Friday shows and hundreds of comments on our posts. Our members love crafting, and our Silversurfers Facebook posts reflect this.”
