Many of you will be familiar with our regular columnist Amy McCarthy and the fantastic craft reports she writes for the Folksy blog. Now that Amy’s stained glass business has really taken off, sadly for Folksy she has decided she can no longer manage to keep up with her writing commitments, Amy also had a column with Creative Crafting – so it’s a fond farewell to Amy and her fab columns, although she’s a regular in the Folksy forums and still very much an active Folksy shopkeeper – you can find her shop at www.amyorangejuice.folksy.com
I hope you will all join us in thanking Amy for these wonderful posts over the past 9 months and wish her the best of luck with her flourishing business. Amy was recently awarded a bursary from Devon Open Studios, one of only 5 awarded, i suspect it wont be the last award she receives!
Here’s a quick recap of all these great posts she has written for us, looking at the various craft genres to be found at Folksy.com. In each post the crafters explain the best way to get started and provide helpful links to inspire you to get creative yourself and try a new craft.
Wool Spinning and Dying
Wire work jewellery
