If you have chosen to make a particular craft or get involved in a certain hobby and have pretty much got it down pat, you might want to consider the next step. This may be the desire to sell your wares for profit.

Once you have uncovered what you love, found your passion, and set up a routine, you may be feeling quite successful. You may also find that you are ready to take the next step and share your craft with the rest of the world.

There are several ways and places to share your craft with others.

Craft Fairs

The first place to look into is in the craft fair market. There you will meet other vendors who sell goods that are completely different from yours and others who have similar items for sale.

This is an excellent way to network, but more importantly, this is an excellent way to check out the competition and to see where you may need to improve your craft or even to step up your game.

Home Parties

While craft fairs are obvious, do not forget about hosting your own home parties. Many crafters do not think of selling their goods from home because they are not a nationally known brand and do not have any tiers for selling, prizes to be won, or incentives.

However, this may be exactly the thing that your friends, family members, and co-workers are looking for you to come to your home and pick up some much-needed holiday or birthday gifts without having to go any further than that.

Teach Classes

If you are an expert at something like baking, playing piano, or painting, one of the best and most lucrative ways to make money and have fun doing what you love is to teach classes. Look into your local Y and see if they can offer you some space.

If not, consider hosting these classes from home. This can be quite lucrative as you are offering your services without much (if any) overhead. This is an excellent way to make money with your craft or hobby.

Community Centers

If you have a craft that you love to make, think about teaching a group of seniors how to create this craft for themselves. Not only will you make extra money, but also you will be offering some much-needed recreation to a needy market.

Networking

Joining a club or community activity is a great way to introduce yourself and your craft to a completely new set of individuals. Taking classes is another great way to network.

Don't forget about fundraisers, especially if you put your label on your wares.

These are just a few of the many ways that you can successfully make money with your craft.
