Announcement: Closing Down

Announcement: Closing Down

It's with mixed feelings that I am announcing that Woodcraft By JoMo is closing down.

As a sideline to my main job, I started the business in 2016. I then took redundancy from my job in 2019 to fully concentrate on my business. So I've not had a bad run!

I love the art of pyrography and will always be grateful that I was in the fortunate position to be able to explore it as a business venture. However, now is the time to call time on running my own business.

Nearly all small businesses I know are struggling at the mo, and mine was no exception.  The cost of materials is constantly going up, the cost of postage is constantly being hiked, bills are up and of course the cost of living is affecting everyone so increasing my own prices to customers was not a viable option.

Running a small business solo is a constant battle of time management and juggling the essential elements of making, marketing, posting, packaging, accounts, admin, photography, videography and everything else. In addition to trying to be available for my husband and kids.

So something had to give, and that something is the Woodcraft By JoMo brand.

I want to express my deepest gratitude to all of you who have supported Woodcraft By JoMo over the years. Whether you were a loyal customer or a member of our wonderful online community, your support has always been appreciated

I am immensely proud of what I've accomplished, and I know that the items I have made for all my lovely customers will still be going strong for years to come.

I will be keeping the website open for a while to use up stock and all items that are already made are now on sale, along with seconds and blanks (links below).

Thanks again to everyone for your support, and I am excited to concentrate on my marketing career going forward.
