Sherwood, OR (PRWEB) April 20, 2004
Craft makers and artists wanting to sell their crafts online have a new outlet in MyCraftSource. Created to assist small businesses or individuals who want to sell their crafts or craft supplies online, MyCraftSource addresses the two biggest obstacles to crafters unsure of how to sell their products online: cost and effort.
Joseph Russ, co-founder of the Sherwood, Oregon based company, says the service was created from a need he and his wife saw in the craft community. "We noticed there were many talented craft people who wanted to sell their products online, but were afraid it would be too expensive or too difficult. We designed our site so that anyone can use it. One of our crafters is a 57 year old grandmother who never dreamed she'd be able to have her own website!"
For $10 per month or less, MyCraftSource provides a fully-featured web site including an individual online catalog and shopping cart. No prior web site building or HTML knowledge is required. All editing is done through an online web site builder where crafters select the layout and design for their site from a wide range of predefined graphic themes.
A catalog feature is available to crafters wanting to do more than market their crafts online. Customers can purchase items immediately online, expanding the potential customer base for the crafters.
Jen Stewart, an independent consultant for the Picture Perfect Scrapbook Company, was one of the charter members of the site. She is thrilled with the features and level of service of the site. "My business has increased considerably ever since I got my website online! I was able to do it all myself (without knowing HTML), I didn't have to hire a webmaster, and I am able to update anytime."

Started in January, 2004 by Joseph and Kerri Russ of Sherwood, Oregon, MyCraftSource provides affordable web site hosting with premium features and minimal effort for crafters wishing to market or sell their crafts online.
