A Little about Crafting as a Hobby

Crafting is a great way to spend your time if you have an interest for this creativity. There are many hobbies you can engage in if you are into trying new things. Candle making, knitting, scrapbooking, name them, there are so many types of craft you can do for a hobby.

Candle Making

While it’s true that it may be both faster and easier to buy store-bought candles, there’s something decidedly fun about making your own. Yes, making your own candles means you get to choose exactly what color, size, and shape the candles are in addition.

Knitting

Knitting is a fun and relaxing hobby. Unfortunately, many people are plagued with knitting anxiety, intimidated by the many kinds of stitches, yarns, and loops they’ve heard and read about. Fortunately, knitting really isn’t all that hard to learn once…

Scrapbooking

One of the greatest things about taking up scrapbooking as a hobby is that anyone can do it. Not only is scrapbooking a great hobby, but you can also create thoughtful personalized gifts for people. It doesn’t matter what your budget is, how much time..

Did you know you can make a fortune out of your hobby? This is actually possible if you can try out advancing your creativity and exposure in this field. It is quite simple; you can join a big association such as Craft and Hobby Association, attend craft classes or read a number of blogs to better your crafting expertise.

The Craft and Hobby Association: An international association that hosts two industry expos, ongoing training programs and offers a full-suite of purchasable benefits (health, life, long-term care etc.) to association members. Among their many offerings, they have an online craft supplies buying guide and Craftsplace.org, an online community where crafters can share ideas, resources and inspiration.

Craft Classes: As crafting gains in popularity, the number of schools offering classes in the business of crafting is increasing as well. Your local craft store, continuing education program or local community colleges often have useful classes.

Barbara Brabec: I must admit that I hesitated to include Brabec’s site as the crafts section has not been updated in some time. Nonetheless, her knowledge about the business of crafting is tested, extensive and impressive. She wrote three excellent books on the topic and the site still has a number of articles worth reading.
