A staggering 98.8% of Crafty Christmas Ideas subscribers are women, the majority of whom are over the age of 50. We found that these newsletter subscribers tend to craft anywhere from once to a few times a week, with a combined 56.6% preferring to spend as long as an evening or weekend crafting. What does this tell us? You want projects that are short, sweet, and simple.
Not surprisingly, readers reported that they craft primarily for their family members. Readers reported being most frustrated by the cost of crafting. This is consistent with 34.6% of survey takers who reported that they would like to see more gift ideas on AllFreeChristmasCrafts.com, since those ideas serve as inexpensive alternatives to department store merchandise. Predictably, 80.7% of our newsletter subscribers said that project pages were their favorite part of the AllFreechristmasCrafts site.
When asked if they crocheted, knit, or sewed in addition to Christmas crafting, 76.2% of survey takers reported sewing, 65.7% crocheting, and 39.5% knitting as hobbies. One of the most diverting responses from Crafty Christmas Ideas subscribers was their favorite Christmas icon. Interestingly, 27.0% of newsletter subscribers prefer snowmen, 25.5% angels, and 20.2% Jesus. If they couldn’t craft for Christmas? 31.1% said Easter, 32.1% Halloween. Other holidays of interests to traditionally Christmas crafters included Mother’s Day and patriotic holidays.
