Craft Site Directory

Welcome to the Craft Site Directory!
Your guide to arts and crafts on the Internet.

The classic version of CraftSiteDirectory.com is back! You can now choose to browse this site via the new version with many additional features and functions, or classic mode if you prefer the no-frills(and faster loading) version. Classic Mode is ideal for those with a slower than normal Internet connection or teachers and researchers trying to find information quickly.

There are great links to be found in both the new version and the classic version of this website. Many of the links are the same in both versions, but there are differences. Take a look around! See which version you prefer!

Who is CraftSiteDirectory.com?
CraftSiteDirectory.com is the oldest arts and crafts directory site on the Internet. Over the years, many other sites have tried to copy us but none can match the quality, up-to-date links we continually provide. Since 1996, we have been your guide to arts and crafts on the Internet.

Use the links in the right hand margin of this page to get started. Search or browse over 150 categories and sub-categories and many quality arts and crafts related listings.

Navigation Tip:
The underlined text on this site is all clickable. The links on the category pages will take you straight to an arts and crafts related website. If the link does not open in a new window, use the 'Back' button on your browser to return to the Craft Site Directory.

This site was a fun find today! Artsonia is a place where kids can post their artwork online. It is set up just like a "real art gallery" and a great learning experience for students or any child K-12.

Our 'sewing patterns' category was updated today with many new links. If you love to sew, you'll love these links. Also remember to check other sections of this site for sewing patterns. For example, if you are looking for patterns to sew clothing, see our 'Apparel' category. If you are looking for sewing patterns to make your own hand bags, check out the 'Handbags' category. We also have a separate category just for quilt sewing patterns and a category just for cloth doll making patterns...

Can you imagine the joy on a child's face to wake up on Christmas morning and find a toy like this? What a difference between something like this and the manufactured toy cars and trucks sold in department stores. Take a look through the customer corner gallery and you will see that these toys will make a 94 year old boy/grandpa smile!!

During routine manual reviews of the links here, it is difficult to avoid distractions. Some of the art and craftwork just seems to lead you down a path. Then, next thing you know, you haven't gotten your work done, and have missed your lunch break. Though, I would not call the work required to maintain the links here actually work. Just look at today's great finds and you'll see why!
