Create & Decorate reaches a broad market, ranging from mature crafters to youthful, sophisticated hobbyists with emerging crafting interests.

We Know Our Readers
The editor and marketing staff at Create & Decorate keep in touch with readers at shows and markets and via email, social networking, and newsletters. This allows us to constantly refine our magazine to directly reflect the passions and fill the creative needs of people who share our interests. Because Create & Decorate is a niche publication, we have been able to establish greater reader involvement than many generalist titles.

Our readers are active crafters—truly an involved and focused market. Readership is 90% female and crafts using all mediums.
