Take The Buy Handmade Pledge!

Written on October 26, 2007 5:56 PM

Crafty powerhouses like CRAFT magazine, Interweave, Etsy.com, Craftster.org and others have joined together to form the Handmade Consortium. To encourage consumer awareness and support indie designers and makers, they've created Pledge Handmade. It's simple, just sign on at their website to make the pledge:

I pledge to buy handmade this holiday season, and request that others do the same for me.

So take the pledge and start keeping a list of your favorite indie businesses to have on hand when anyone asks what you want for the holidays! We'll be writing another Getcrafty Handmade Holiday round-up of the best handmade gifts to give and get, so stay tuned if you need inspiration!
