Handmade Crafts wants you! Or your ideas..!
Thats right! Following the great response to our previous post about
regular craft giveaways, we thought we'd ask you a more
How can Handmade Crafts help you to advertise your crafts?
We've got a lot of great ideas for the future of Handmade Crafts - and will soon be inviting a very
select few of you to preview some new features (including an exciting new twist on our craft links directory),
but at this point we felt we should check what you think would help too.
After all, you're the crafters! Please leave us a comment below with your suggestions and we will do our best
to take them on board as we develop Handmade Crafts further.
Craft Giveaway - almost here!
After several very kind offers, we will be making arrangements (and contacting some of the crafters who have
volunteered prizes), so we can start our first raffle. It's likely to run at the end of this month
or early June, so keep checking back
(or follow us on twitter - @ukcrafts).
