What is the craftjuice story?


My dad the potter

So meet my dad (see picture) who makes pots for a living..

I make websites for a living and way back in the 90’s I had the task to launch a site for my parents (as you do).

So once the site was online it was time for me to look a ways in getting the site in front of people (marketing) which to start with was hard.

Back in the 1990’s not many sites about crafts existed which of course was a problem so I had thought to start sites I needed..

… hence the birth of ukcraftwebsites and craftsforum



The problem with the forum was we had to stop people just advertising as it looked spammy and really didn’t help others with being a crafter.

So the question came about of how can we show off all the wonderful work of our members?

Craftjuice was born…

If you don’t know what craftjuice is it’s a social network for crafters to show off designs ideas tutorials blogs.. basically anything crafty.. I get loads of emails from happy users and buyers who found items to buy browsing craftjuice and supporting the world of handmade!!
