Access back issues of the Craft Business Newsletter below. Since I returned to weaving full time and managing a fine crafts gallery, I have not had enough hours to write and publish the Craft Business newsletter. However, I occasionally send out news or announcements related to selling crafts to that you may be interested in receiving.
If you are interested in being or remaining on my mailing list, join the VIP Club, from where I can contact you when I share news.

“One website and newsletter that I ALWAYS enjoy is James Dillehay’s Craftmarketer Newsletter. His topics always include great, timely information and even if he’s not talking about a craft that’s specific to me, I’ve never received a newsletter that didn’t have SOME piece of useful information.”
