Fine Craft Guild’s Eco-green Focus
On FineCraftGuild.com, about 40% of projects use recycled craft materials. We aim to strengthen that green focus.
New materials suggested are usually logical choices, such as in the case of ingredients in food recipes. Often though, FineCraftGuild.com suggests readers to first check what already have in their home before purchasing new craft supplies. Our philosophy is to make the world a happier and greener place: thus: re-purpose, ‘make do with what you have’, and buy only what is necessary to make projects fabulous.
The Fine Craft Guild of Creative Writers
Fine Craft Guild is written mostly by our prolific writer and editor-in-chief, who loves life and writes under the pseudoneum of Rose.
Rose lives like an artist and embellishes everything in sight. You can find handmade home accents throughout her house, made with wide range of media. She paints in acrylics. Paper art & craft seem to stick with her, and her projects in this medium turn out half decent. She loves bead jewelry, making necklaces, bracelets, etc! Rose learned to knit as a teenager. These days she loves getting her sewing machine out. Having said that, hand embroidery is a current fad… and her interest in crochet is only 5 years old, but growing with every breath she takes.
Beyond Rose, we feature guest writers – artisans from all over the world, covering all kinds of different crafts. They are people who love to create DIY, Crafts & Home Décor, and have a keen interest in eco-friendly designs. As mentioned before, Fine Craft Guild is a true fan of recycled art & craft, and we will be writing more and more about that, in all craft mediums, as time goes on.
Writers are active crafters, jewelry makers, quilters, seamstresses, crochet-ers, knitters, home decorators, renovators, furniture upcyclers, and artists. We share DIY & craft tutorials, tips and techniques on this blog. Rather than feature ‘every attempt ever made by anyone to make something creative’, we aim to feature only the best. This way, readers can find the most beautiful projects here, presented to them in wise and simple terms.
Behind the scenes at FineCraftGuild.com we have a guy dubbed ‘Michael’. He is our technical guru who can figure out and fix anything with our craft blog. From time to time, he’ll be poking his nose out.
