Following on from the success of the The Big Book of Craft Interviews, I am pleased to announce the launch of Volume 2.
The book is broken down into two sections. The first looks at the joy of crafting for pleasure and also explores turning your passion into a business. We look at some of the main outlets for selling your handmade items, including Etsy, ArtFire, DeWanda and Folksy and how to promote your store through social marketing.
The second part of the book introduces 15 more crafters who have turned their love of crafting into a career. There are interviews with ten very successful craft business owners, who cover such diverse areas as paper craft, jewelry design and felting, to name but a few.
Some of these people are running their business on a small scale, while they juggle other work and family commitments, whilst others have built full-time businesses making their main income with their crafts. These crafters are of all ages and walks of life, but what unites them is the passion they have for what they do and the great advice they offer for others who would like to follow their path.
The book also features interviews with five leading handmade design experts, who all run successful online classes. Author and knitter Susan B Anderson, jewelry designer Aga Kruk, paper crafter Megan Hoeppner, amigurumi crochet designer Stacey Trock and fiber artist Carol Ann Waugh, all share their expertise with us in their respective areas of craft and design.
Volume 2 builds on the first book and provides a fascinating insight, not only into the lives of other crafters, but also into how you can bring the joy of crafting into your own life, whether for business or pleasure.
The book is available for Kindle, and if you don’s have a Kindle you can download a free app which means you can read on PC, Mac, iPad etc. Your can download this free app from Amazon USA and Amazon UK.
