FRIENDLY FRIDAY ~ 7 June ~ Craft Business Recommendations

07 Jun

Hello, I think this week here in the UK, most of us have been out enjoying and making the most of the sun actually shining here for more than one day in a row, which is a rare occurrence, as this weeks recommendations are a bit sparse!

Each week we feature businesses that have all been recommended by other crafters, they all make or sell handcrafted items, gifts or sell craft supplies.

This is a great way to discover some new and wonderful businesses.  Please take a look and visit them to see more of their products.

The Craft Seeker banner

The Craft Seeker is a new website designed to help bring buyers and seller together. It allows buyers to post requests, either a general enquiry (eg. I am looking for a gift for my sisters 40th birthday) or a specific request (eg. I need a purple, floral credit card holder), and can be for finished items or supplies/services. Sellers may respond to any queries they wish with comments, photos or links to other websites (eg: Facebook page, Internet shop, own website etc)

Anyone may view recent requests on this site but in order to post you must be a member.
