Create & Thrive
Jess from Create & Thrive has been running her own craft based business (plus blog and podcast) since 2008 and she wants to share her passion for all things crafty with you.
She’s super happy but also super realistic about the work it takes to make your own business into a success and if you’re serious about making money, her advice is top notch.
The LoveCrafts Show
Merion and Jamie host The LoverCrafts Show and she’s a maker with a passion for just about everything and he specializes in cross-stitch.
There’s a nice mix here in the joy of making things as well as getting a grasp on the thorny nature of making your hobby into a business. They know how to take you to the next-level.
The Business Of Making
This is a side project of Jess at Create & Thrive where she’s teamed up with Deb and Makeala and together they talk to small business owners in the crafting sphere and tell them what they need to hear.
The Crafter’s Box
This is an unusual podcast because it works in conjunction with a subscription box service and the idea is simple: you buy the box and when it arrives, they teach you how to make what’s in it.
But they also take a look at how you can then put these skills into use from a business perspective.
This is a great form of personal development for serious crafters and it’s fun too!
Etsy is one of the biggest opportunities for would-be crafters and we can’t recommend Etsy Jam enough if you want to break in.
They share lessons other sellers have learned, do Q&A’s with sellers and much more!
Making It With Jimmy Diresta, Bob Clagett and David Picciuto
If you really want to know what life’s like as a professional “maker” then this is a superb podcast because you get three viewpoints from different parts of the business.
They have plenty of inspiration to help you get started and then how to overcome the obstacles that appear in your way.
Did you know Etsy make a podcast designed to help teach you how to succeed?
Well, they do and it’s called Etsy Success.
This is a no-brainer for new and experienced makers and sellers alike.
You have to love a good pun and we think, this is a great pun. It’s also a very good podcast for the professional quilter (or would-be professional quilter).
You’ll find out what motivates others, how to develop your skills, and listen to fascinating insights from other major names in the quilting world.
It’s really good.
