Store Closing – Clearance Sale

Sotre Closing Clearance Announcement

We just celebrated our 5 year anniversary in January! Wow, time flies. For 5 years we’ve enjoyed supporting you, our fellow demonstrators with over 500 newsletters published in versions for 6 countries.

After meeting and completing our annual review we have made the difficult decision to close the CraftyPerson Newsletter Service as of March 31st.

This was an incredibly hard choice for us because we love supporting you and your business. The biggest factor in our decision is that our platform technology is over 6 years old, which is ancient in technology time. Without getting too technical, there is the risk that it could quit working at any time, which would leave you and us scrambling without warning. The system would require a complete rebuild, which is a larger financial and time investment than we can support with our family commitments and full time jobs.

The CraftyPerson store and website will also close on March 31st. Until then all tutorials in the store are available to you at no cost, so be sure to visit the store and add them to your collection. Our three crafting full-color, paperback books will continue to be available on Amazon.  Debbie will continue hosting crafting retreats in Washington, Oregon, and Arizona.

We are truly grateful for your support through years! As you can imagine, we are sad to leave this chapter of our connection with you.

Please note, the tutorials are all digital downloads that are available directly after the order has been made on the Thank you Page.   You will also receive an email confirmation with the download links.

    • Betty Ann. You are an amazing lady and friend. We appreciated working with you, and all the crazy adventures we had at the Canadian Convention a few years ago. Thank you for being our tour guide.

  6. Thank you for all you both did for the Stamping World!
    You will be missed. It is understandable in these times, everything
    is just too prohibitive right now, for anyone. I wish you both the best and pray for your new adventures, yet to come!
    Blessings to you both, and thank you, again!

  7. I understand your decision and am sorry I will not have the newsletters available to me. They have been an important part of my hobby business. Best wishes and keep in touch!

  8. Closing a store is always a difficult and sad decision to make. I know first hand. Years ago I owned a video store with my very dear friend & after 5 yrs, we had to close because now the big stores came in the picture selling videos & were able to rent for less than we could. Thank you for all the heart & soul you put into all your videos & newsletters, etc. Good luck with this next chapter of your lives.
