Message from PCG member The Crafty Kitten

"Please take a look at this auction - it is to help fund the convalescence of my friends cat who was hit by a car earlier in the week and although his treatment and surgery are covered by insurance, he will need special adaptations around the house for awhile as it looks like he will be loosing his hind leg.

There will be more info and offers appearing on this page throughout the day if you want to help this truly wonderful family :)"

This morning we asked our members to show us their favourite item that they are selling right now!

For me Off With Her Head Millinery by Lisa Jones it would have to be my little Sweetheat Hat, based on an original 1940's design and looks stunning in black cherry.

Hello if it's items for sale I would have to say my message in a bottle range but my little ladies I am keeping (I will be doing some more with new designs for sale as soon as I clear my feet) .... Paperama x

@ProCrafterGuild my rabbits are probably my favourites at the moment,

Look at these fantastic Clangers made by member Rachael from Blue Shed Crafts for a customer order.

Message from Premium PCG Supplier member WowThankYou

"The WowThankYou Facebook page is getting stronger by the day and our 'themes' are being commented on frequently. But to rule out any bias, or simply my own taste, I want to invite sellers on WTY to pick five products currently listed on the website for us to showcase. Just five random items, not from your own store (!), that catch your eye/deserve their moment in the spotlight. For doing this your store will be featured during that day. I'd really like to start running these features tomorrow for the entire Half Term week - so I'm seeking 9 people who currently have stores on WTY who can email me 5 item links that they like on the website. I will then email you to tell you what 'your' day is.

Our facebook page is and my email is

There are EIGHT PCG members being published in Creative Crafting magazine next week!
