It’s always exciting for me when I create a new category on Crafty Tips. It usually means that a new type of craft will be included on my craft directory. But, in this case it is a category that is often overlooked by other crafting directories – sadly, mine was missing it as well.
The new category that I’m blabbering about is Craft Software. For now, it has only one site listed but I hope that will not be the case for long as the page gets spidered and indexed by Google and the other search engines.
From time to time, I add great crafting websites that I find without waiting for the site owner to submit it on their own. However, it has always been my personal belief that commercial sites should have to find me on their own – seems unfair to do otherwise. Since most people who make Craft Software sell their programs, it has been a hole in the directory.
I am excited to showcase Rexan’s Craft Organizer Software as the first software company to be represented in this category. Rexan appears to have created what amounts to an ERP (enterprise resource planning) product where crafters can track their expenses, inventory and sales all from one piece of software. I haven’t seen it in action but it looks quite cool with plenty of room for pictures of both raw materials and finished goods.
Hopefully in the not-too-distant future, the category will begin seeing more great software programs for crafters including the variety of picture to pattern programs for cross stitchers, needlepointers and others.
If you sell a Craft Software program, please consider adding your site – the only cost is the time it takes you to write a description of your product and provide a crafting tip; in other words, it’s absolutely free!
