All Craft Media Limited (In Liquidation)4 May 2012
On Monday (30th April) we heard that a new company, Handmade Living Limited, had been incorporated in the UK. Handmade Living is one of the magazines in the All Craft Media (previously KAL Media) stable. The sole Director of this new company is Richard Rycroft, Kerrie Allman’s father. Kerrie was the sole director of KAL, and Wayne (Kerrie’s husband) was the sole director of ACM Keep it in the family, that’s what I say.
Today (4th May), All Craft Media has announced that it’s going into liquidation.
So it looks as though they’re picking out probably their only money-making magazine and hiving it off into a new company. Here we go again….. And they launched a new magazine about two weeks ago, Handmade Fashion. No idea what’s happening to that one.
Subscription copies of a number of magazines are still at the printers who say they are “unable to release them” at the moment (and that was before the liquidation was announced), designers and contributors are once again unpaid, lace club, sock club and amirugami club members are still awaiting goods they’ve paid for.
I’ll post details of the liquidators of ACM and how to claim as soon as I have it.
CORRECTION: They’ve gone into Administration, NOT Liquidation. Though they’ve sacked all the staff. Further details to follow.
