Craft a Creative Business: Making & Marketing a Successful Creative Business
Craft a Creative Business: Making & Marketing a Successful Creative Business

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a joy to read and that in itself is an achievement ..., 27 Oct. 2014
This book is a joy to read and that in itself is an achievement in a book about business. It is well laid out, with each chapter having a different background colour and information is presented in a mix of styles so you eye and brain is kept stimulated. Its a neat size; easy to carry round and read on the go

Fiona writes with a friendly, clear voice. She covers a wide range of issues and topics relevant to a creative business (and many other small businesses) with no flannel, making complex subjects simple and easy to understand and absorb. You can work your way through from beginning to end or, more likely, dip into the chapters that you either need to work on for your business or are naturally drawn to. It's an interactive read; Fiona suggests at the beginning that you start the book with a notebook at your side and complete the activities as you go (these are the ring bound notebook boxes on the page). At the end of the book you will then have a notebook full of good ideas and plans for your enterprise.

The coverage is vast, from tweaking your merchandise photographs to insurance, to google analytics. Fiona trained as a lawyer. Legalities are not the most interesting to think about but they do have to be understood and mastering an online presence is an essential part of any business today. Much of the success of Fiona's own business, Sewing Directory, has come from her knowledge of law and her social media skills. Her etiquette guides to Twitter, Facebook and her Do's and Don'ts of Social Media are must read sections if you are new to any aspect of social media.

If you are having even the vaguest thoughts about starting a crafty business, this book is your new best friend. Read it, do the activities and be prepared for what running a small business throws at you. Its a tough world out there and everyone needs a friend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful style, photography and patterns, 5 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Stunning photography, large pictures (this is a generously sized book) and lots of variations for each pattern. The book is all in French so do consider that for the sewing information- you do need to have a fair amount of sewing experience to get yourself through the different sewing processes involved. The patterns need to be traced off large printed sheet and seam allowances added. I have sewn a few items from this book and had great results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Colour, 9 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great colour and amazing value. I regularly buy Fly shoes and I love how I can walk a long distance in them straightaway without problems. I take a 5 in Mes boots and I took a 6 in these. I have wide feet with a high instep and this style is best for that shape. A narrow flatter foot would find the straps would be too big, even on the tightest setting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy Family Cookbook, 7 July 2009
Recipes are accessible- not too many ingredients, healthy without being mean and practical for satisfying different ages of eater. I'm quite an experienced cook but there are so many easy ideas and combinations you may not have have thought of that it is definitely worth adding to your recipe book collection. My daughter is 9 and quite fussy and she loved it and tried lots of new combinations- Quick salmon and goats tart was very easy and loved by all. Cakes are good and spelt flour works well in baking. Lemon drizzle cake was different to all the other lemon drizzle cakes I have made and tasted delicious, even though it did need a lower temperature for cooking. Some rather odd photos of Fay Ripley but each recipe has its own photo and the food does match the picture when you make it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quilting on the go- Great practical book, 7 July 2009
This review is from: Quilting-on-the-go (Paperback)
The method of working quilts in smaller sections is explained clearly with detailed photos and descriptions. I have arm strain problems and find this an ideal method to make quilts and do machine quilting without the strain of working with a big heavy quilt. It has a good selection of projects with alternative colour ways shown and is a great springboard into designing your own quilts using the on the go technique.
