We just wanted to start by saying welcome to MAKEetc. and thank you for visiting!
This blog post is a celebration of the fact that we made - WE MADE IT!!! - and we now have a website for all of our lovely craft books. But we're not just going to whoop and cheer, we also want to tell you a little bit about what you can expect and why you might want to keep on stopping by...
Firstly, there will be patterns and projects for you to make.
We're going to be sharing craft ideas from our books so that you can have a go at some taster projects. With everything from knitting and crochet to sewing and mixed media crafts, we hope that there will always be something on our site for you to make.
Secondly, we're offering loyalty rewards for craft lovers like you.
You see that little orange tab at the bottom of the page? If you click on it, you will be offered the chance to earn your first 200 maker's points by creating a store account with MAKEetc. You'll be well on your way to your first £5 off reward and with 5 points for every £1 you spend with our store, we don't think it will take you long before you reach a £10 off reward either!
We have books by some of the best craft authors around.
Our authors are the most creative and skilled crafters around and we cannot wait for you to meet them. Many of them teach classes or workshops in their craft, some of them have brilliant blogs or websites, and all of them are really really good at designing projects for you. Head over to our author section to find out more about a new author every couple of weeks.
We love video tutorials!
We have a great selection of project videos and techniques videos with our authors, so if you are looking to learn a new craft, fancy making with the kids or just love to follow video craft projects, then you've come to the right place. We post new videos onto our Youtube Channel on Mondays and will include your favourites on our video pages on this site.
And last but certainly not least... we have brilliant craft books!
We might be a tad biased, but we hope you will agree that we have some lovely books for beginner and advanced crafters alike. You can browse our books by craft or check out our new releases. And if you're signed up to our newsletter (if you're not, then why not?!) keep an eye on your inbox for exclusive discounts and exciting book giveaways.
Thanks for reading and happy making!
