Lee Skalkos and Judy Standerford have both been working in the crafts field for since the early 1980's. They both felt that it was important to keep the resources of the Craft Digest available. Both artists are passionate about supporting the American craftsmen and the arts. They will be taking over publication of the Craft Digest under a new name, the East Coast Artisan beginning in January, 2006. Please visit the web site www.eastcoastartisan.com to subscribe.
