    For The Craftiness In All of Us

    I loved this book! Not only does the author give excellent informative and comprehensive information on what you need to begin a crafts business, but she expands on a number of resources that are pertinent to every crafter. After reading the book I checked out several of the websites and found incredible crafty ladies out there who are very professional. You can purchase any type of homemade craft there is available. The book was inspirational to say the least and I would recommend anyone who is interested in honing their craft to read it.

    Points you in the right direction

    Admittedly I have not finished this book, but what I have read I have enjoyed. The chapters are laid out well. Plus, it's written in a way that gives you ample information without boring you to tears. If you love to craft, and are thinking about taking the leap into the retail world, I would recommend this reading this book.

    Good Amount of Information!

    I think this book is just a year or so out of date, but it still holds up! The author presents the material in such a concise and breeezy manner, it was truly a pleasure to read. I have been selling my crafts online for a few years now and this still had plenty to teach me!

    As my boss says, I'm a creative type. I'm not into the intricacies of business and I'd make a horrible accountant. So when I thought about starting to sell my crafting hobby creations, I bought a few books. This was one of the three that I bought, and the one I read first. It's not quite as detailed as a "Complete Idiot's Guide" or "Dummies" BUT it's not boring as those guides have a tendency to be. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and learned quite a bit from it. The language was simple, almost conversational, and the layout/flow of the book was smooth and logical. A great choice for someone looking to make the jump from amateur/hobby-ist to professional.
