On applying to join the Guild an automatic payment subscription will be set up through PayPal. Payments will be made to Crystal Lady Designs, the parent company of the PCG. Upgrading Ruby members can cancel their current subscription after application to Sapphire. Any active Ruby Subscriptions will be cancelled by the PCG on processing of Sapphire Membership.
“Being a Sapphire member of the PCG gives me access to a fantastic community of professional crafters who are supportive and helpful. Working on my own means I have to make decisions on subjects I know very little about, having a network of people from a varied background means most questions can be answered quickly and efficiently.”

"When you operate in the 'arts & craft' arena, sometimes it's not fully understood that you're running a business and what you do is not just a side-line or hobby for the people who run them. Being a member of the Professional Crafters Guild helps gives visibility, credibility and a badge of professionalism to designers, artists and makers. Being a member of the Guild means access to a wealth of experience and knowledge and at such an affordable price becoming a member is a 'no-brainer" We get excellent engagement & support from the Guild & fellow members. Well worth every penny - you won't find a better value membership organisation anywhere else.

“ I joined because I think being part of something like the Guild shows the world that you are serious about what you do, so for me it is worth the money. It means to me that I am part of a fantastic crafting community who also help each other out with advice etc when needed, and you can pick each others brains about things. ”
