Colourful Week at Makerist!
Add Some Colour To Your Next Craft Project!
Colourful Week is Makerist's answer to Black Friday. We're a small business - at least compared to some of the other players in the DIY market! - and in order to meet our revenue targets we do sometimes need to participate in the Flash Sales culture that is so prevalent in the eCommerce space. What does that mean for you? You still get a great deal on all sorts of craft patterns, and we get an opportunity to introduce you to our amazing community of independent designers, and help them grow their businesses. Win win!
