CHA Hispanic Quantitative Research April 2007


Study objectives

Study Objectives

Among other objectives, CHA wanted to update the following primary information from the 2003 study:

  • Which crafts do Hispanic crafters take part in?

  • How many and what projects did consumers participate in and complete in the past 12 months?

  • What are their craft projects used for (decorating, gifts, resale, etc.)?

  • Where do participants get their crafting ideas?

  • Where do they purchase craft supplies and how often do they shop?

  • How much do they spend in a typical year on craft supplies/services?

  • Do Hispanic crafters from all acculturation levels feel they need information in Spanish?


Methodology and screening criteria

Methodology and Screening Criteria

  • A nationally representative sample of 1,004 interviews were conducted in key states within the four primary U.S. Census regions:

    • Northeast Region – 146 surveys

      • Includes representation from NY, NJ, PA, CT, MA

    • Midwest Region – 85 surveys

      • Includes representation from IL, IN, MI, OH

    • South Region – 352 surveys

      • Includes representation from TX, FL, GA, NC, TN, VA

    • West Region – 421 surveys

      • Includes representation from CA, AZ, NM, CO, WA, NV, OR

  • Interviewing was conducted January 18 – February 23, 2007 via telephone, 7 days a the week, primarily during afternoon/evening hours. Average interview length was 20 minutes. Interviewers were completely bilingual to allow respondent to complete interview in the language of their choice.

  • Respondents were qualified by these screening requirements:

    • Self-identified Hispanic, Age 18+

    • Head of household

    • Participate in craft or hobby activities - answer “yes” to the following:

      • Thinking about how you like to spend your free time ... do you engage in any craft or hobby activities at least once a year or more often? Please think of crafts where you make, design, or assemble projects by hand rather than hobbies like collecting postal stamps or coins.


Analytical notes

Analytical Notes

  • Sample is geographically representative and does not require weighting. Not all 50 U.S. states are included in the sample plan, excluding those with lower, overall Hispanic population. Regional totals, however, are proportionally representative to U.S. Hispanic population.

  • Statistically significant differences – where mentioned – were calculated at the 95% level of confidence.

    • Statistically significant differences are noted on graphics with a red oval: which indicates that the value is significantly higher than at least one other value.

    • Data tables use a letter notation where the letter(s) next to the value indicates that the value is significantly higher than the value in the column with the corresponding letter(s).

  • The total sample of 1,004 has a margin of error of +/- 3.1 percentage points at 95% confidence.

    • The base of 146 for the Northeast region has a margin of error of +/- 8.1 percentage points at 95% confidence.

    • The base of 85 for the Midwest region has a margin of error of +/- 10.6 percentage points at 95% confidence.

    • The base of 352 for the South region has a margin of error of +/- 5.2 percentage points at 95% confidence.

    • The base of 421 for the West region has a margin of error of +/- 4.8 percentage points at 95% confidence.

  • Where referenced, 2003 results are based on weighted data and come from surveys completed in 5 major U.S. Hispanic markets – LA, Miami, NY, Chicago, San Antonio. When comparing 2003 results, these differences in sample should be considered. Besides geography, the only other difference in screening criteria was that the 2003 study required that respondents had been living in the U.S. for at least 12 months (systematically excluding the “newly-arrived”).


Acculturation groups

Acculturation Groups

Acculturated and Partly Acculturated:They are primarily English speakers and consumers of English media.  They are generally 3rd generation or higher without much direct contact to their home country.  They value traditions, particularly eager to reconnect to parents/grandparents traditions.  They are most likely to have attained higher education and income.  They are more likely to be mobile (move to other parts of the country for jobs, etc) and have fewer children than their less acculturated counterparts.  They may have greater emphasis on their heritage, cultural pride - sometimes retro-acculturating - given that they are in the full stages of acculturating and possible assimilation for future generations.

Bicultural:They are living in two worlds - perfectly comfortable in 2 languages and 2 cultures.  They are a small group, as most will fall to either side of the acculturation continuum.  They speak both English and Spanish equally and consume media in both languages.   They tend to have spent  at least some of their formative years in the U.S. and may have attended at least some school here.  They play a critical role in their family as a link between the less acculturated members of their family and the 'outside world'.  They have cultural pride but may take it in stride as they move toward first stages of acculturation. 

Unacculturated and Partly Unacculturated:This group consists primarily of Spanish speakers and consumers of Spanish media.  They are generally first generation immigrants with continual contact to the home country, perhaps planning to return there someday.  They strongly value traditions but also expect to be able to learn the American 'way of life' particularly for their children.  Traditions, especially religious and family, are honored throughout the family.  They are likely to be almost exclusively in a homogenous social circle, mostly family/extended family from their home country.  They tend to have lower incomes and less formal education.

Executive Summary


Executive summary

Executive Summary

About half of Hispanics age 18+ participate in some craft/hobby:

  • Three-fourths are female

  • Average age is 47 years old

  • Average household income is $35,900

  • 53% are unacculturated; 16% bi-cultural; 31% at least partly acculturated

  • 88% speak Spanish very well or well

  • 54% speak English very well or well

  • 26% were born in the U.S. and have lived in the U.S. an average of 20+ years

  • 44% are Mexican-born

    KEY FINDING: The incidence of Hispanic crafters is consistent with the 50% discovered in the 2003 study.


Executive summary1

Executive Summary

Hispanic crafters reported a variety of craft activities as their “favorite”, the most predominant being:

  • Knitting (20%)

  • Woodworking (8%)

  • Cross-stitch / Embroidery (8%)

  • Woodworking (8%)

  • Cake decorating (7%)

  • Crocheting (7%)

  • Art & Drawing (7%)

  • Floral arranging (6%)

  • Home décor / Decorative painting (6%)

  • Apparel / fashion sewing (5%)

    KEY FINDING: Compared to the 2003 study, there was a dramatic increase for knitting as favorite (20% vs. 7% in ’03). Conversely, a significant decrease occurred in Art/Drawing, dropping from 15% in ’03 to 7% in this study, as well as for Floral arranging (going from 11% in ’03 to 6% in 2007).


Executive summary2

Executive Summary

Total involvement in craft categories varies dramatically by acculturation:

  • Involvement in Needlecrafts increases dramatically as acculturation decreases.

  • Involvement in General Crafts (including woodworking, cake making, etc) increases significantly as acculturation increases.

  • Biculturals are more likely than either unacculturated or acculturated to be involved in Floral Crafts.

    KEY FINDING: Interest in crafts that have never been tried is high (at least 1 in 5 say they are very interested) for the following:

  • Sewing Crafts (especially among the unacculturated)

  • Scrapbooking (across all acculturation groups)

  • Floral Crafts (especially among the unacculturated)

  • Cake decorating (especially among the unacculturated)


Executive summary3

Executive Summary

Although number of projects completed is similar to 2003 results, Hispanic crafters may be spending more, on average, in a typical year:

  • The average dollars spent was significantly higher in this study ($413 vs. $185 in 2003).

  • The acculturated reported average annual spending at a rate nearly 3 times the average reported by the unacculturated ($638 vs. $240).

    There was also a dramatic shift in the types of stores they shop at for craft supplies compared to 2003 results:

  • Dramatic and significant decreases occurred for shopping at flea markets/craft fairs, drugstore/supermarkets, housewares/home goods, and magazine/mail order.

  • Dramatic and significant increases occurred for shopping at discounters like Wal-mart/K-mart/Target and Craft chains like Michaels/Hobby Lobby as well as Hardware like Home Depot and Fabric like Joann.

    KEY FINDING: Retail has essentially dethroned the flea market. The discount stores and craft chains have captured more than half of the shoppers in this segment. Meeting their needs will keep them coming back for more. Those needs are discussed in the importance and behavioral ratings section.


Executive summary4

Executive Summary

Sources for craft ideas are still reported to come primarily from the crafter herself or himself. Otherwise, the primary sources of ideas are:

  • Magazines (likely trade magazine, craft-specific magazines)

  • Books

  • TV / DVD / Video (particularly among the acculturated)

  • Compared to 2003 results, some new sources of ideas surfacing in this study were:

    • Catalogs

    • In-store displays and demonstrations

    • Internet resources (particularly among the acculturated)

      End-uses of craft activities that are predominant, and significantly higher than even the 2003 study showed:

  • Keep them: 54% overall, and significantly higher among the unacculturated (66% versus only 42% of the acculturated).

  • Decorate the home: 47% overall, again significantly higher among the unacculturated (51% versus only 30% of the acculturated)

    KEY FINDING: Very few sell their crafts or enter them in competitions/contests, so those kinds of promotions, in-store or otherwise, may be ineffective. Rather, showing crafts as means of personal satisfaction and enhancing their homes should be effective.


Opportunities for cha

Opportunities for CHA

  • Opportunity for growth overall exists, since one-half of adult Hispanics are estimated to be non-crafters.

  • Opportunity for growth exists with male Hispanics since three-fourths of qualified respondents were female.

    • These opportunities can be leveraged by communicating the following strengths of crafting expressed by current Hispanic crafters (which resonate across all acculturation groups):

      • It is relaxing and makes you feel better

      • You can express, discover, explore your personal creativity

      • It can provide an escape (although Hispanic crafters are not generally seeking “alone time”). The “escape” or “quiet time” can be effective and culturally relevant portrayed with children, spouses, or other adult friends participating with crafters.

    • Despite the representation from all acculturation groups, nearly 9 in 10 respondents overall reported that they speak Spanish very well or well (and 4 of 5 said they read Spanish very well or well). Spanish-language advertising could, therefore, be effective in communicating to the more Spanish-dependent without alienating English-speaking, acculturated Hispanics (who will be exposed to general market advertising any way).

      • The more language-dependent are typically less acculturated, and may be positively driven by the following:

        • Crafting connects them to their culture and family traditions

        • Retailers who provide craft info in Spanish language

        • Provides opportunities to spend time with people, family, groups, individuals with like interests

        • Provides money-saving opportunities when creating gifts, home décor, etc.


Opportunities for cha1

Opportunities for CHA

  • Retailers can reach out better to Hispanic crafters by:

    • Emphasizing and providing helpful, responsive, knowledgeable staff in stores to help answer questions about the most popular craft activities.

    • Where possible, assure that a representative number of store employees are Spanish-speaking. This accomplishes two purposes:

      • Provides needed help in Spanish language

      • Communicates to Hispanic consumers that the retailer cares about them and is addressing their unique needs.

    • Making craft info available in Spanish, as well as doing some targeted Spanish-language advertising that communicates this.

Incidence of hispanic crafters by region

Incidence of Hispanic Crafters By Region

In 2003, the sample included crafters and non-crafters, revealing a virtual 50/50 split when allowed to fall naturally. The 2007 study included only crafters, but according to disposition reports which track otherwise qualified Hispanics who were disqualified because they were non-crafters, the following reveals that the 50/50 split still exists among Hispanics. The lowest incidence of crafters occurred in the Northeast region (45%).

Interest in craft participation among those who do not currently participate

Interest In Craft Participation Among Those Who Do Not Currently Participate

Despite its overall popularity, needlecrafts did not garner much interest among those who do not already practice it.

Sewing crafts, however, not only have high overall current participation, but also captured the most interest among those who do not participate in them. As noted, the unacculturated express significantly more interest in several categories. Results across regions were generally consistent.

Importance statements by region extremely very important

Importance Statements By Region – Extremely/Very Important

Receiving assistance from store employees is most important among these statements. Hispanic crafters are less concerned about internet resources overall. These results were remarkably consistent by region with the exception that crafters in the West region are place particular importance on having craft information in Spanish language.

Importance statements by acculturation extremely very important

Importance Statements By Acculturation – Extremely/Very Important

Unacculturated crafters were significantly more likely to place high importance on every statement. This would not be surprising for language-oriented statements, but the unacculturated were even more passionate about internet resources, advice from experienced crafters, and desire to participate in group activities.

Typical holidays occasions for making crafts by region

Typical Holidays/Occasions For Making Crafts By Region

Besides the obvious holidays, the most revealing response to this question may be that nearly one-third do not make crafts or hobby projects linked to any holiday or special occasion. These results were very consistent across regions.

Q.17. For which holidays or special occasions do you make craft or hobby projects?

Typical Holidays/Occasions For Making Crafts By Acculturation

The unacculturated were significantly more likely to make crafts for Mother’s or Father’s Day while the acculturated were twice as likely as the unacculturated to craft for Christmas. The unacculturated, however, were also significantly more likely to say they do not craft for any holidays/occasions (nearly 2 in 5 said this).

Where Hispanic Crafters Typically Purchase Items By Region

There was a remarkably significant shift from 2003 in sources of goods/services from flea markets/craft fairs to discount, craft, and other retail chains and department stores. Almost as dramatic was the decrease from drugstores/supermarkets and housewares/home goods reported in 2003. Surprising was the decrease in internet, which had increased as a source for craft ideas since 2003. Magazines and mail order from catalogs also suffered a significant decline.
