Hello, I’m Anna and I created the Professional Crafters Guild in 2011 to help craft businesses like mine to get the recognition that they deserve.
I’m a busy wife and mum to two sons so I know how hard it is to juggle with everything that you need to do to make your business successful. There is always so much to keep up to date with; social networking, websites, legal procedures; that it is difficult to find the time to create your products.
And let’s face it, creating was why you started in the first place wasn’t it! All of this other stuff just gets in the way and on top of you.
Let us help you to learn the skills that you need and provide you with a community that knows how you are feeling. How to help.
