Hi all!

I have had an advert for a new magazine called craft seller - does anyone have this?

Is it worth getting?

I've seen it advertised online and it looks good but I don't know which shops supply it. If I find it I'll buy a copy and let you know what its like lol :)

Curious as I am, I've looked for it and found the link (http://www.cross-stitching.com/forum/re-craft-seller-mag-t3763.html)
It's brand new and it doesn't say whether it'll hit the shops like WHSmiths but I guess so.

Craftseller is a unique new title that inspires and advises craftmaking projects to sell. There's no other magazine out like it!

Craftseller is published by Origin and the first ever issue came on sale yesterday. It's just 4.99 and is available to buy in WHSmiths and Hobbycraft, as well as in larger Tesco stores for just the next 2 weeks. Or you can order your first copy on the Origin Publishing website, just search in Google and look under 'Magazine Specials' on the welcome page.

The second issue is out on the 30th August and then it's going monthly! It'll be available to buy in more stores from Issue 2 or you can set up a subscription to make sure you receive it every month!

I bought it today. I dont usually buy craft mags, but this is a tad different, I have hardly put it down today LOL!
Love the little book of labels that came free with it too.

Bought CS today and it's quite good, theres a section on selling on etsy and a summer fete survival guide. The labels are handy too but the magazine seemed to center on selling sewed/knitted/crocheted goods, not much about cardmaking for me lol so I think how useful it is can depend on your craft. Still lots of good information and advice though!

I went into Hobbycraft today but they didn't have it. Will see if I can find it somewhere else

I got mine from WH Smiths but I've heard some of the bigger supermarkets have them too

Just spotted this thread and wanted to say I found a 5 issues for 5 deal for Craftseller here: https://secure3.subscribeonline.co.uk/origin/offers.sol?mag=CSEL&cmp=x681&promobox=false (https://secure3.subscribeonline.co.uk/origin/offers.sol?mag=CSEL&cmp=x681&promobox=false)

They also have the same offer on many of their other craft mags including Cross Stitch ones and papercraft ones. Just use the drop down at the top to select a different mag.

I just wanted to add to this thread by saying that I love Craftseller! It is by far the best magazine I have ever subscribed too! It brings all the things I am interested in together into one magazine! I love the Business tips and the fact that there are loads of opportunities to get involved!

...Anyone know where I can get the first issue from though?! As always I found out about this after everybody else!!
