Subject: No "crafts" section?

I have quite a few craft books (knitting, crochet, quilting, sewing) I'd like to eventually post but in the dropdown list there is no "crafts" section toselect.

Can a section for "crafts" be added to the dropdown list by the "librarian" at PBS or somebody?

If not, where should I post these types of books?

You can still post them using their ISBN.  I've posted a number of knitting books and they tend to go very quickly.

There are tons and tons of craft books on here.   All posted I assume by their ISBN.

I just looked.  Under Home and Garden, there is a Crafts and Hobbies genre.

just be sure and check the guidelines before posting the crafts books...  grabbed the following for you from the Help Center

Not allowed:

  • leaflets or pamphlets or booklets* without ISBNs (other members complain at spending a credit for these)

*A leaflet/pamphlet is an item with fewer than 20 pages; a booklet is an item with between 20 and 50 pages that is not a children's book. Children's books often have less than 50 pages and are not considered booklets just because of their short pagelength.

The number of pages must be included in the item description and the item needs to be clearly described in the listing with regard to its brief length/small size.

Also, if you haven't found it, there is a Crafting Discussion Forum on the main Discussions page.  There is a Red thread there that Len put up for Crafting Deals, if you happen to offer any. : ***Crafting Deals Thread***
