About Our Site
StartACraftBusiness was formed to offer a unique reference point on how to start up and run a craft business.
Have you ever dreamed of turning your passion for craft into a business? Have you discovered an area of the market that isn't yet being catered for and want to fill the gap? Or perhaps you're interested in buying and running an existing craft business?
Whatever your motivation, and whether you intend to make crafts, sell craft products or sell a crafting service, if you're interested in starting or running a craft-related business, StartACraftBusiness is the site for you.
Starting a craft business isn't for the faint-hearted. There's a lot to get your head around, even in the very first stages of early planning, and it can be mind-boggling wading your way through all the practical, legal and financial implications. However, help is at hand, for every stage of your craft business journey, in the form of this website.
StartACraftBusiness is here to guide you through the whole process of planning, setting up and running a craft business. The site covers all the essential issues any new business owner needs to focus on, offering insight into areas such as finance, selling, finding and sourcing supplies and materials, PR and promotion and growing your business from year to year. We've also got a section on running a business from home, for those that don't want the expense of hiring an office, shop or workshop facilities.
New content is added regularly and, if you've got a burning question you'd like answered, you can even ask our experts.
Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.
Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.
