Get Creative IndexCraftlink Newsletter

The CRAFTLINK Newsletter is the creation of author, designer and publisher Karen Booy.

Karen has over 25 years of experience running her own craft businesses and has been publishing CRAFTLINK since 1989. She knows first-hand the challenges that professional crafters face when starting and running a business.

The CRAFTLINK mission statement "is to provide the professional crafter with the most extensive source of information available in the marketplace today. It is our belief that a person who is serious about their business, will not only save time and energy by accessing CRAFTLINK, but will make more money, more quickly by utilizing the information found in the publication. Our job is to compile, and make information available to you, the crafter, it is then your job to decide which information can be best utilized by you and your business."

CRAFTLINK has helped hundreds of professional crafters on the West Coast establish viable businesses over the last eight years. The newsletter is currently published as a regional edition for British Columbia, Canada and surrounding areas and includes the most comprehensive resource list available for regional craft fairs on the West Coast. An international version is in the works at this time.
