Does your house (or business) deserve a bespoke portrait from an award-winning illustrator? Alex Foster can make that happen for you.

PS. Would make a brilliant wedding present or house-warming gift too.

How are you at sewing? We're giving away five Simplicity sewing patterns and if you need to brush up on your skills we've got half-price dressmaking lessons from Craftsy on offer too. Head over here for details http://blog.folksy.com/2017/02/21/online-dressmaking-lessons

Now we just need equipment that's as pretty as Emma's from Seaforth Designs. Swoon.

What does craft mean to you? To Nicky from The Catkin Boutique it's about people and community – it's about supporting the person next door so they can make a living from their skill.

"In the midst of winter, I find myself looking for the first signs of spring. But when it's snowing outside, sometimes you have to make your own."

That's why Michelle Collier aka Bisabuela made her own paper posy that never wilts and always flowers. Find it here http://folksy.it/2khAZ1C
