  • New to crafting,


    My Name is tracey and i am very new to crafting and would love to chat to other keen crafters. I am a total techno nivice and find it all abit scary trying to find all the goodies that are advertised as i do not have a craft shop in my home town. I have looked on line with my limited knowledge of the web and have come accross a few good sites but have never ordered from them as yet. I am hoping that some of you kind ladies/gents will help me with some projects and give me some good web-sites to use as they all scare me abit on the ordering side. I have a friend who crafts in grimsby and has found a great web-site called MOD EDIT - PLEASE READ RULES Re URLs really cheap and great products great service and she always gets loads of free goodies in her order. She keeps on at me to stop being scared and order from them. Has anybody else ordered from them? Please help me as i would love a great supplier and if anybody knows of other great web-sites i can look up. I look forward to hearing from anybody who can help me.

        Welcome to the forum. Defintely the right place to come, lots of good advice, tips and friendly people here. Try looking in the Card and Scrapbooking sections. I don't do either crafts so can't be of much help, but I am sure there's lots of advice here.

        Enjoy! Kate

              Hi Tracy. I love card-making and scrapbooking too. I've had some lovely things recently from fellow crafter, Emma. She's got a web page advertised on this site called getcrafty.
