Curation Policy

The team at Crafting News and Crochet News are constantly scouring the internet for our favorite crafting techniques, tutorials, videos, products and patterns to share with our readers.  When we find something we love, naturally we want to share it and the internet was established on that very basis – the sourcing and sharing of knowledge and information. And of course cat videos – we all love those.

Our aim is to help bloggers and designers get their content in front of a wider audience of craft fans who are just looking for your patterns and tutorials but haven’t come across you yet. We’ll sometimes use an excerpt of your article to describe a pattern in your own words, and will always link back to the original source material or to your pattern download page to give you full credit, send our readers over to your site or store, and help independent pattern designers get more sales.

We share it because we love it and we think our readers will too. Our readers also then go on to share it on social media and Pinterest to bring in even more readers to your article and buyers to your pattern store.

Most bloggers and designers are delighted at the prospect of a link back to their site or pattern store. However if you prefer not to have your content linked and shared on any of the Crafting News sites, just let us know.  We will remove all such content immediately and mark up our records not to share your content again.  Just drop us an email via the little envelope in the social sharing icons, or drop us a line via the Contact Us form.

Use the search bar to find crafting ideas.
