I can find lists of wholesale suppliers, many on-line marketing tips, informal legal advise, and all sorts of checklists that are targeted specifically to the craft industry.

Craft Industry Alliance is a great way to keep up with what’s going on in the craft industry. I like reading their trade show reports — I’m always interested in what other businesses do for displays. It’s hard to find professional advice that feels applicable to my unique business, but Craft Industry Alliance has connected me with similar crafty business owners.
