For those of you who enjoy crafting as a hobby or business, I found a great site with lots of how-to’s and a forum where people share information and pictures of their latest creations. It’s Craftster. There’s also an “Opportunities for Crafters” Board, where stores seeking to purchase handmade goods and magazines looking for craft projects can advertise. This might be just the inspiration you need to start your own home business!
My all-time favorite crafting site is Craftsy! You’ll find a community of crafters there who share your passion, and online classes in quilting, sewing, cake decorating, knitting, crochet, and more!
Also, Craftsy has an excellent affiliate program. Program Highlights:
- 30% commission on all course sales
- $1 for every new registered Craftsy account
- 30 day cookie
- $10 affiliate referrals: Invite your website-owning and blogging friends to join the Craftsy affiliate program and earn $10 for each friend who’s approved.
