Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I join?
As a small business owner, it is not easy to go alone. You’re a small fish in a world of billion dollar big box retailers. By banding together we have the negotiating power of national chains like Michael’s or Hobby Lobby. We can work with product manufacturers to secure competitive pricing as well as pre-release and exclusive access to the products our customers love.
We also work together to develop unique products and experiences that are exclusive to Crafters Home stores. Check out our Maker Mania event – an exciting new format to connect with customers outside of our usual bubbles, that we brought to life during the dark days of the pandemic.
Unlike other business associations, Crafters Home isn’t just business. We’re a close knit community of people who share the same trials and tribulations. We get together on zoom every week. In that time we meet with vendors to make sure we’re getting the best discounts and exclusivities. But after the vendors leave, we hang out to swap ideas and support each other.
How many vendors do you partner with?
We are partnered with over 100 vendors from small independent companies to large wholesalers. We definitely work with many of the vendors you know and love like Notions and Sizzix.
Can you tell me more about the exclusives?
We are always looking for the next exclusive products and events. We have classes before Creativation that are only for Crafters Home members and are taught by some of the biggest names including Lawn Fawn, Ranger, Sizzix and many others! We work to secure exclusives with various many different vendors while also working together to develop our own.
