My background story:
I grew up in a small town where it rained a lot. There were only a few things to do indoors when it rained, except reading, drawing, and making crafts. My interest and love for crafts started when I spent hours watching my mother refashion old clothes into new garments for me.
I loved seeing my mother working with her trusty sewing machine and other tools. One of my fondest memories in her sewing room was sifting through buttons, beads, and jewelry charms. They all looked so pretty to me! There were so many colors, shapes, and sizes that intrigued me so much.
My mother loved making all sorts of crafts. She always reused, repurposed, and repaired fabrics, which incredibly fascinated me. She also loved knitting, cross-stitching, and making other needlework and jewelry.
As my fascination grew, so did my interest in making crafts. I decided to ask my mother to teach me some basic sewing, knitting, and jewelry-making skills. I also joined several workshops and sought guidance from many experts to hone my skills.
Since then, online forums, blogs, and workshops have helped me learn more and more techniques and hacks in craft-making. I then realized that I was not the only one who seeks these pieces of information online.
From then on, I try all the knowledge I gathered online. I started answering questions in forums before. But I figured that making an organized website would be easier for everyone, especially the beginners.
What do I believe in?
I believe in the wonderful, positive effects of craft-making. It does not matter if you make it by hand or with a machine. Did you know that 81% of survey respondents with depression reported that they felt happier after knitting?
For me, craft-making is an excellent way to deal with all the stuff in my life. My projects distract me from whatever I need a distraction from, and I am pretty passionate about it.
Most times, especially during bad days, nothing makes me feel better than losing myself in a project for a little while. I take time to create something, then come back refreshed to whatever I need to deal with in my life.
Other than providing us with a creative outlet, did you know that craft-making has other benefits? It helps us reduce stress, relieve anxieties, and build self-esteem. And I hope the right information from CraftTribeOnline will help you experience these wonderful benefits as I do.
What is CraftTribeOnline’s Mission?
Using the experience and knowledge that I gained over the years, I started CraftTribeOnline. I realized the importance of sharing essential information online. I believe that, like me, many other crafters look for help and guidance on the internet.
Through the years, I learned that there are many different ways to do the same things. And there are no mistakes, only adaptability. But when you do something the hard way, then you are doing it the wrong way.
Since the year I created CraftTribeOnline, it has been my pleasure to write many info-packed posts. And I hope that my posts answer many of the questions often left unanswered or answered indirectly.
I dedicate CraftTribeOnline to a creative lifestyle. With the information here, let us all pour our hearts and souls into our craft projects. In a way, I hope my website also enables my readers to master or learn new creative skills to enrich their lives.
I aim to share as much information as I can with all those who seek guidance and tips in creating various crafts. You can learn to make handmade gifts, create jewelry, and lots of other pretty and practical things. Celebrate every day with your creativity and desire to be better.
Please keep in mind that the information on this website does not have a warranty of any kind. But, I guarantee that I make every effort to ensure the accuracy of the content on CraftTribeOnline.
