A must for artists and crafters in business

I have been a professional artist, craftsperson and writer since 1981. In the intervening years I have read dozens of books about crafts business and general business practices. Some have been very good, some useless. I am happy to report that The Savvy Crafter's Guide to Success falls into the first category: a very useful book for those just starting in the craft business and those that have been in business for many years.

At first glance, what sets this book apart from most business books is that it is in full color; a very nice thing for artists and craftspeople.

This wonderful book is about more than just about selling your crafts, but also is about successful career building-- it covers aspects of teaching and finding arenas in which to promote yourself and your work.

Also included are chapters about photographing your work, organizing your workspace, handling business paperwork, writing about your work, and how to judge your success.

In addition, the book features profiles and interviews with a diverse range of crafters who have found their own way to building a successful crafting business.

Beautifully laid out and photographed, this is one of the best crafts business books around. If you are at all serious about your business, it is a must read!

About the Author

Freelance artist Sandra McCall has been making art since majoring in commercial art. She quickly decided that the field was too restrictive for her and began working in multi-medium art and assemblage while paying the bills with a job as an accountant. She began making her original drawings and eraser carvings into rubber stamps and eventually found a whole new career. Today, Sandy has authored three books, created instructional DVDs, designs new projects and teaches rubberstamping.
