About Me

Welcome to Art of Crafts and thanks for dropping by.

I started this blog because I have a love of anything art and crafts related. Yes, I am the person who scours the surrounding area to see if there are any craft fairs nearby, who loves reading other crafters’ blogs and who can always find something yummy to buy on Etsy.

In my spare time I enjoy knitting, crochet and jewelry making and I have also dabbled in a range of other crafts such as quilting, cross stitching, tapestry and card making. You name it, I love to try it. My Nan was a seamstress by profession and I learned to sew on her very old foot-pedal action Singer machine. As a child I loved looking through her boxes of buttons and there is still nothing nicer to me than browsing craft shops, looking at yarns and swatches of glorious fabric.

In the blog I like to feature How-To guides, interviews with crafters and authors, reviews of books, features on other craft based sites, showcases of designers I have found around the net, giveaways, competitions and much more. If you have something you would like to see featured, or you would like to write for the blog then please feel free to contact me.

You can also follow Art of Crafts on Twitter or join us over at our Art of Crafts’ Facebook page – the more the merrier. If you want to drop me a mail then take a look at  my Contact Page. I have also recently created an Etsy store which features my handmade jewelry, so please do pop over and take a look.

Please feel free to leave comments on any of the posts – I would love to hear from you and learn about what you enjoy craft wise.

If you enjoy the blog then please also subscribe so that you can be the first to hear about new posts, or sign up for my newsletter for the latest info, competitions and giveaways.

My long term aim is to make Art of Crafts a community of like minded craft lovers, where we can share what we love, discuss new ideas and above all enjoy our time amongst the fabric, yarn, beads…….the list goes on.

Happy Crafting 🙂
