We’re nine independent business owners in Austin, TX who share similar beginnings in fashion, craft and art. Each lady of the ACM owns and operates a respected and established business that represents the DIY spirit and brings her own individual talents to the group. We realized we could be mutual resources of support, promotion, information sharing and fun. We strive to be a model of the entrepreneurial spirit to Craft Mafias™ across the country! The Austin Craft Mafia™ established the Craft Mafia™ site and Web Ring to link and cross promote sister groups in other cities, share web traffic, and provide helpful information to other professional craft designers and groups.
