Welcome to crafthaus, the network for fine craft artists and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us!
Please start to look around and add your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussions posted. Of course, if there is something else you'd much rather talk about, please add that so that the rest of us can chime in. Crafthaus is a participatory sport!
Please note that crafthaus is a fully edited and member-financed website, meaning that a small fee ($20/yr or $35/2yrs) is involved in being a member here. Your membership fee is due on January 15, 2011, you will find information about payment options in the FAQs section.
ALL images sent to the website editor are vetted to assure a measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the images have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light, and from the many images received daily, we try to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect! :-)
If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via firstname.lastname@example.org anytime. I will do my best to be of help. I hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.

For the next 13 months we'll discuss the trials, triumphs, and tribulations of exhibiting in art shows as emerging artists and established artists. Exhibition coverage will be balanced with tips on how to strategically build a legacy over a length of time, in a way that makes sense to your individual goals as an artist and maker.
Join us each month! There will be surprises around every corner, with photos, videos, SNAG conference coverage, and occasional interviews by rising artists!
