Hand-Made Crosses (US only)

John Raymond, Pastor of the New Horizon Christian Fellowship in Slidell, Louisiana never had a problem meeting the demand for his Disciple’s Crosses™, until his appearance on the hit CBS television show, Survivor: Thailand. After wearing one of these unique, hand-made crosses on the show, interest skyrocketed and there is no way he can meet the demand himself and therefore needs homeworkers to make these crosses.

As a Disciple’s Cross™ Certified Producer, you will be given generous marketing rights so you can sell your Disciple’s Cross™ necklaces to whomever you wish – at whatever price you choose, or simply return them under the guaranteed buy back program.

Backed by the personal guarantee of Pastor John Raymond – No empty promises or shifty schemes here – just an honest day’s pay for an honest day’s work. As the senior pastor of a Slidell, Louisiana church, he certainly cannot afford to jeopardize his reputation.

How to Start Making Money With Your Crafts by Kathryn Caputo

Amazon Reader Review

“How to Start Making Money with your Crafts” is a great book for those crafters (like myself) who love to craft, and have decided to take their crafts into the “new world” of business, but have no idea how to go about doing that! The author takes the reader through a step-by-step approach from deciding on a product line to pricing and selling your products for profit. When I started reading this book, I only knew that I wanted to open a crafts business and work with fabric…when I finished the book, I had nailed down a product line, made decisions about pricing, and had decided how to sell the products! The book is full of helpful worksheets and questions at the end of each chapter to help you make important desisions about your business. It takes many considerations into account: time, family/children, money, your abilities, etc. to help you succeed at your business. There are also many stories about other succesful crafters, their ideas, and hints to help you. The “selling” part of this book focuses on selling at craft fairs. Other selling options are discussed, but not explored, but even if you do not plan to sell at craft fairs, you will benefit from the wealth of information given in this book!

List Price: $14.95 AmazonPrice: $11.96 Paperback – 271 pages (October 1996)

“The first step to building a profitable crafts enterprise at home,” declares noted crafts-business expert Barbara Brabec, “is to think of it as a business, not a hobby … whether your annual income goal is $500 or $50,000.” Handmade for Profit explains clearly how to do just that, with coverage of 16 different retail markets, including fairs and shows, shops and galleries, and Internet and catalog sales. All of the other necessary basics are presented as well, from building confidence, developing your product line, and setting prices, to creating a printed professional image with brochures, business cards, labels, and more. Of particular interest is the final chapter, which details precisely how to turn your hobby into a successful business.
