Links to Home Crafters


If you can’t make it all this holiday season, whatever you can’t make yourself, buy from someone who can. Support a home crafter. I’m putting this post up so CITR readers can buy from CITR readers. If you are a home crafter, post your link!

(If you have a really long url, you may need to shorten it.)

P.S. If you want to leave a comment telling a little about what you sell in your shop, please do! (It will also help me verify real crafters. I’m already getting spammed here and am deleting spam links.)

    Thank you for the much needed exposure for home crafters. I love that handmade is making a comeback!

  5. ScreamingSardine says:

    Thanks for the exposure, Suzanne. I just started my shop, The Prairie Patch, and will be adding a lot more items. Oops, I better get busy working on that quilt!

  8. prayingpup says:

    My stuff is pretty basic – not very fancy – crochet doggy sweaters, afghans, pot holders, hats, scarves, baby stuff – special orders. Thanks for doing this, Suzanne!

    I’m watching for links here, I will shop from my CITR friends, (though I make a lot of things myself) Post your links ladies!!! (and gentlemen!)

    I just want to say though, that I love, Love, LOVE the picture on this post Suzanne. Every time I see it I just melt into a puddle of summer scents, warmth, and sunshine. You need to print it up and put it for sale yourself!!!!

  11. Sarah says:

    I’ve been reading you for roughly a year now and you never fail to inspire me to get back to my roots. I’m a work at home single mom, moved back in with my parents, trying to get a bit of family land back in shape. It’s not easy, that’s for sure. I loathe the idea of working in the corporate world, so I craft at home. Before my implet came along, I was a costumer, but fancy fabrics and infant fingers really just don’t mix! Now, it’s a bit of whatever I can do on the fly!

  12. Jane says:

    I love how you take an idea and make it better. Earlier, I saw the link from the shepherdess and looked at her soap (looks lovely too:). I can only assume that gave you the idea to create a post of links – or maybe it’s just something you’ve always done – but it’s wonderful and very kind of you, and useful to us.

  13. Kristina says:

    Thank you, Suzanne. I have been selling handmade items on ebay for some time and am trying to get going with Etsy. I have mostly padded seatbelt covers on Etsy and crochet hook cases. Ebay is more accessories for those silly little Zhu Zhu pets. They funded Christmas last year and it looks like they will again. Thanks again for the help! Back to the sewing machine…

  14. Darlene says:

    I also checked out Shepherd’s site and when I came back I was thrilled to see your post. I would much rather buy from our friends here at CITR than anywhere else. Thank you so much for doing this :snoopy:

    Hi Suzanne!

    I make soap, rice bags (hot/cold packs), zippered wristlet purses, and little quilts for my etsy shop. I can also do custom quilts and machine embroidered baby blankets.

  16. Helen says:

    What a generous thing to do, Suzanne…thank you so much :heart:

  17. Betsy LaBass says:

    That’s why we all love Suzanne. You are generous and an inspiration. Thank you so much!

  18. Hannah says:

    Thanks for this opportunity! My site features greeting and notecards created from my original photography and watercolor artwork. Calligraphy Christmas cards are available for pre-ordering through Nov 28th.

    I have recently enjoyed learning from your posts on soap-making as that has become an interest of mine!

  19. Nancy K. says:

    Thank you SO much, Suzanne! I’m happy that my comment on your previous post triggered the idea. How awesome that we can shop from and inspire one another. I can’t wait to check out everyone else’s links and see what they’re making.

    I started selling my crafts as a means of making money so that I can keep my home and animals. I lost my job a year ago and have yet to find another. It doesn’t help that I’m 45 minutes from the nearest city and am almost 58 years old. I kept reading about “doing what you love” and decided to give it a try. I don’t think I’ve been this happy since my children were little!

    I sell homemade goat milk soap in a variety of sizes, shapes and scents. I specialize in needle-felted soap. Using a felting needle and wool from my Shetland sheep, I create felted animals out of bars of goat milk soap! I have 2 different sheep designs and just finished my first PIG! (she’s adorable if I DO say so myself!)

    I offer lots of other stuff too but I better quit hogging the comment section! THANK YOU, SUZANNE!!!

  20. Rachel says:

    Thank you so much for the link! I make organic cotton baby items over on my site OrganicPatchwork. I also have an Etsy store under the same name, but don’t have anything listed right now. Guess I’ll have to get that up and going again!

  21. Diane says:

    Thank you Suzanne!!! I added my link to my etsy shop. I have both vintange and hand made stuff I am selling. I have some digital signs that you can buy and print out, A toddler dress, odds and ends. lol. Just what ever I can find that is old or what ever I can make and list. So enjoy. 🙂

  22. Miss Becky says:

    I LOVE this idea. I’m going to devote my afternoon to visiting all these links and browsing. thanks Suzanne. You rock my world. :hug: :yes: :hug:

  23. annabel52 says:

    How nice of you to host all us crafters. I would rather buy from friends than just anyone. And although I have only been on this site for a little while I feel like it is filled with a bunch of like minded folks that are looking to simplify life and become self sufficient.
    At my etsy site, FlemingFarmDesigns, I have recycled items that I have produced for several years. As soon as I get my desktop back up I will list some more items. I also have a few of my hand painted, recycled vintage treasures. I try to live the recycled life when I can. If you shop at my store you will be helping an out of work student pay for the next and final semester of school so I can get my degree. I plan to shop this afternoon for gifts for my family right here on CITR!!!

  24. Momika says:

    Hi! I’m “Momika” I specialize in upcycled/recycled items including wool sweaters that have been upcycled into a handbags and floral wreaths. I also upcycled vintage buttons and vintage jewelry into new jewelry pieces as well as dabble a little in sterling silver jewelry.

  25. Ramona says:

    Sounds like a lot of great products.

  26. Angela Croom says:

    Thanks for doing this! People are so CREATIVE! I make Jewelry and fun/unique Hair Accessories.
    Happy Holidays!!

  27. Jessica Tibbetts says:

    Hi Suzanne!
    I just submitted my link for comfrey cream from herban organics. Just wanted you to know so you would think it is spam…
    The link goes to a post on my blog since I don’t have a website yet.
    Thanks for this opportunity, it really helps.

  28. Jessica Tibbetts says:

    OOPS! I meant so that you would NOT think my link was spam. Sorry about that, my brain gets ahead of my fingers sometimes.

  29. Carol Boumiea says:

    Suzanne! This is a great idea!
    Our store, Esalon Photography offers high quality photographic prints and useful, unique handmade items personally created.
    Photographs are by Charles Boumiea along with me, Carol (a long time CITR reader), providing photographs and the other handmade items.
    Suzanne! Thank you SO much!
