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.
Providing help and support for you throughout your professional crafting career
The Professional Crafters Guild is first and foremost a membership organisation; a community and a place where professional crafters can network, gain support, advice, access workshops and gain additional publicity for their craft business. It’s strength is in it’s members, making the most of opportunities to share and learn from one another. Our small membership fees enable us to maintain the membership, co-ordinate activities and providing a website and social media platform which members can use to raise their profile. We are always developing new ideas to support members and enhance the experience. Our guild badge helps your customers see you are a professional crafter – it's your business not a hobby.
Why should you join the PCG?
We understand how hard it can be to run a small craft business. (We either are or have been in your position)
Sometimes you just need a little help with an aspect of your work. Whether it is practical, technical or support. We have members with all levels of experience that love to help out.
It seems that you have to spend more and more time online marketing and less time doing the creating that you love. Let us help you to manage your time and while we are at it promote your business for you.
How do you make your business stand out from all of the rest? Our attractive and unique badges and certificates can help with this. Display them with pride on your websites and craft stalls and show the world that mean business!
Do you love taking part in activities that boost your business? Join in with our fabulous CRAFTfest events.
Above you will find just a few of the reasons to join our community of professional crafters.

“Amazing service for the beginner or the experienced! Thank you for being so supportive to us all at A.R.P Jewellery. The tips, experience and general help and support has been brilliant - we could not have got to where we are now without your help, dedication and general love of crafting!”
- Rachel Gibbs, A.R.P Jewellery
“I joined because I thought that it would show my business was not just a hobby, but I have got so much more out of it. Running a craft business can be lonely but everybody in the Guild is friendly and supportive. When you need a bit of encouragement there is always somebody to help you along. It really is money well spent.”
