I pledge that this Christmas all the gifts I give will be handmade. I will make as many of them as I can myself. The ones I cannot make myself, I will buy from independent artists and crafters.
I will also ask for handmade gifts from my family and friends.
If you want to ensure that handmade market is alive and kicking, do the same. Go to http://buyhandmade.org, sign the pledge and post the pledge banner on you website.
