I love to receive printed catalogs for arts and crafts supplies in the mail. I usually look through them fairly quickly when they first arrive. Then later when I have more time, I look through them again much more slowly. As I view each item, my creative juices really get fired up. I also get ideas for holiday gifts to make.
Publishing a printed catalog is expensive. Some online craft supply companies keep costs down by not offering printed catalogs. If the company has a well-designed website, it still can be very enjoyable, as well as easy and convenient, to browse the inventory.
Below I have listed some online suppliers from whom I have purchased materials. Some offer printed catalogs and some do not. Please click on the links to visit my pages where I discuss each supplier in more detail.
