Over 100 Free Craft Patterns, Tips and Ideas!

Easy and Cheap ...Crafts!

The day is not complete til you add a few rounds to a sock.


In 1995, these pages began as a collection of yarn and fabric based craft patterns and ideas that were both inexpensive and quick to finish, for those of us who were short of cash, ideas and patience.

Over the years, this site has grown to include craft related software, lots of tips, links to online crafting groups and craft suppliers; and most recently, some ideas for making extra money, links to free stuff and recipes.

Life's demands being what they are, in mid 2004, I decided to simplify this site. It's much easier to find your way around.
