About Unanimous Craft: Indie Business Resources
What is Unanimous Craft?
Unanimous Craft is a membership-based directory of resources for crafters, artists, makers and indie business owners. I submit my favorite resources and welcome the community to do the same. It's kind of like Yelp for the crafty community.
Before you purchase a membership, you can browse our database of great indie shops and read our blog.
After you purchase a Premium Membership you can submit listings for your own website and for tools that are useful in running your business. Then, you can rate (1-5 hearts) and review resources listed on the site. You can also curate lists of your favorite resources - or those that have a common theme and then share them with friends.
If you own one of the resources listed, complete this form and we'll upgrade your account. With the upgrade you will now be able to edit the text and photo of in your listing. You can also add contact information and links to all your social networking sites as well as a photo gallery.
If you want to read more about things you can do with your Unanimous Craft account, check out this blog post I wrote called, What Can Unanimous Craft Do For You?"
Why I Did It
I was inspired to build Unanimous Craft after seeing a huge list of links to different resources that The House of Mouse posted in the Etsy forums. I wanted to make a tool that our community could use to get organized and share information. The site launched in March, 2010 with about 100 resources that were featured in Handmade Nation by Faythe Levine and Courtney Heimerl. The rest of the resources have been created by our community.
I am a waterproof Shower Art maker, ex-stand-up comedian and blogger who is currently obsessed with German board games, Bikram yoga and free-motion embroidery. I also founded and maintain Unanimous Craft and EtsySaver. I also opened a retail shop, Ugly Baby and La Ru in the historic Pike Place Market in Seattle, WA. Come visit when you're in town!
