Indie Knows: Craftster: A DIY Revolution

Indie Knows writer:
Nicole Sapsford

With a prominent tag lines like "no tea cosies without irony" and "cute doesn't need a reason" you can tell from the start that this is no ordinary craft site. Craftster began in 2003 with the aim of being a "repository for hip, off-beat, crafty diy (do it yourself) projects" and with this ideal has become a huge and much loved site by many diyers.

Craftster is a haven for anyone who likes to do it for themselves. With forums like housewares, clothing and cooking (to name but a few) you're sure to find something for you. There are hundreds of user submitted tutorials and fellow craftsters are more than willing to help with any DIY problems you might have.

They also have monthly contests to compete for fabulous prizes and a forum for organized swaps where you can partake in anything from fabric/supply swaps to making a cute plushie for someone and getting one in return. It's like a secret Santa but all year round!
