Poster Sketch: Handmade Artists Team

Being a crafter in the internet age is a truly remarkable thing. We have access to an endless supply of materials from all over the world. We can learn a new skill by downloading a PDF or watching a video. We can create and print patterns from our favorite images. And the best part - we can meet with other crafters to share ideas, knowledge, and support.

One of the most active teams in the Etsy community is the HAF Team. The group is made up of members of the Handmade Artists Forum - a place to meet with others who make and sell handmade products. Though they may create different things, these crafters and designers have come together to share, learn and promote handmade.

This week’s Poster Sketch is a delightful collection of bead treasures from HAF Etsy sellers. You can also see the team’s other unique creations by searching for “HAFTeam” on
