  • "New" (to me) Magazine offer....

    Got a junk mail ad that caught my eye before being tossed it in the fireplace. Have any of you seen/subscribe to "The Crafts Report". Looks like it may have some good info for folks in the business of selling, but it is their ad i'm reading.......

    Thanks!

    Fine by me--if you were promoting another scrolling magazine--it would be an altogether different story <grin>

      Crafts Report is an outstanding publication. Really nothing to do with any one particular craft but all to do with the business side, more of a trade magazine. I subscribe and while there are articles with no interest to me there are always at least a few worth reading. They include tips on marketing, customer service, booth layout, trends as well as having listings of many of the better shows and exhibitions around the country. I think it's the best Crafter magazine available.
      In my mind though, a totally different genre than SSW.

          The Crafts Report is very much like the Sunshine Artist's magazine. They both cater to the arts and crafts crowds in general--pottery, carving, painting, sculpture, scrolling, ect.--and lean toward the business end of the field. They do not compete with SSW in any way. There is a lot of good advice in them if you go to a lot of shows (or are interested in getting started) or need business advice like how to account for your costs, setting up your displays, schedules and critiques for prominent shows in the US, etc. They can both get very boring very quickly (to me) sometimes, but usually have a couple interesting articles on the artists and their work.

We had to go to separate places but both my wife and I had our first dose of the vaccine on January 21st and appointments for the second one on Feb 23rd. The...

            I’m too young yet don’t meet other guidelines. We are still 75 and over or health care workers I believe. My husband is in health care, so he has now gotten both of his shots.
