Hello Everyone!

I am a newcomer on iCraft, and am enjoying the website's emphasis on "handmade" crafts .

For many years I have been on Etsy, as a crochet swimsuit maker . Recently, I have noticed that there is more "mass" products made in China or other overseas countries being sold on Etsy, or through an Etsy seller located in other parts of the world (USA, for example).

Well...... Read more
