From the Author
Selling crafts ain't easy. And it can be even harder if you're trying to juggle your crafty biz with a full-time job and any kind of personal life.
That's where Crafty Superstar: Make Crafts on the Side, Earn Extra Cash and Basically Have It All
comes in! This business guide for part-time crafters includes advice from craft superstars such as Jenny Hart, Jessica Manack, Grace Bonney, Jenny Harada, Cinnamon Cooper and many more. I interviewed dozens of crafters to get advice on how to boost your Etsy sales, promote yourself and your crafts, deal with customers and balance your craft life with your personal life.
Basically, this is the book I wish I'd had back when I was starting to sell my crafts. I hope it will help you become the crafty superstar you've always dreamed of.
