CraftGossip stands as a beacon of inspiration in the vast sea of the craft and DIY industry. Since its inception in 2007, it has been a go-to source for crafters, DIY enthusiasts, and creators seeking the latest projects, ideas, techniques, and tools. The brainchild of Shellie Wilson and Vikram Goyal, CraftGossip has grown from an idea to a highly respected platform that curates and reviews content from across the craft world.
CraftGossip's roots are firmly planted in the craft industry. Shellie Wilson, having already established Craftbits.com with her mother Rita Wilson, saw a need for a platform that could feature and review the latest projects and ideas from craft companies and independent creators alike. Thus, CraftGossip was born.
Today, CraftGossip is more than just a blog; it's a community. It has been featured in TechCrunch, HuffPost, Woman’s Magazines, Martha Stewart, and more, cementing its place as a leader in the craft world. Its editorial team is a who's who of craft experts, including Vicki Howell, Jennifer Perkins, Meaghan Mountford, Anne Weaver, Francine Clouden, Stefanie Girard, and Sarah White.
CraftGossip's success lies in its dedication to providing personalized attention to its content. The blog is divided into sub-blogs, each managed by a dedicated editor. These sub-blogs cover a wide range of topics, including knitting, crochet, bath and body, jewelry making, scrapbooking, sewing crafts, recycled crafts, needlework, edible crafts, indie crafts, stamping, lesson plans, glass art, quilting, polymer clay, felting, home and garden, cross-stitch, and DIY weddings.
CraftGossip's commitment to scouring the net for the best craft ideas and projects has earned it a loyal following. Its daily newsletter has become a source of inspiration for thousands of crafters and creators. From sewing and crochet to home and garden crafts, CraftGossip's curated content sparks creativity and fuels the passion of its readers.
