People are drawn to crafting for so many reasons. Some need an outlet for their creativity, some craft because it is calming and satisfying; some to learn new things, some to be part of a larger community of like-minded people. Some crafters combine all of the above. At iCraft, all of our creators share these traits: creativity and the need to express it; a desire to share their creations, and a love of unique handmade crafts.
The beauty of crafting is that it doesn’t have to be a full-time job to give major satisfaction. You can turn your hobby into a business and enjoy the best of both worlds!
At iCraft there are a wide range of crafters who turn their hobbies into a business.
One of iCraft’s most popular sellers, Fairy Cardmaker, works full time, but has an enduring passion for paper crafts. She makes fun cards and custom scrapbook photo albums for any occasion. She occasionally teaches card-making workshops and other paper art classes for a local animal rescue.
Some crafters are full-time retired. Beach Point Arts Studio is home to four artists who paint, sew, woodwork using awesome and styles to form raw materials into unique products for you and your home.
