    I recently went full time

    Out of curiosity any info on how I can become a hosted maker?
    Any rules I need to know, or specific guidelines?

    Any info would be greatly appreciated

    If I remember correctly (always highly suspect;)) you just have to be a paid up knifemaker/craftsman and ask so I think you're good Colin :)

    I'm sure @Spark will be along shortly to let us know if I need more gingko biloba, lol.

    I'm gonna move forward with it.
    How do I do the 3 year maker membership?
    Just purchase the regular membership and then add 2 years?

    You have to purchase the 3 years up front, not one year at a time & let them expire.

    I was referring to the year I just gifted him, sorry for the confusion(transaction number from PayPal in previous post). He just needs to get two more years paid for, correct?

    I seriously appreciate the help guys.
    It lays down another step in my journey of full time knifemaking.

    I'll get some ideas going for the subforum tonight and tomorrow.

    Just got a batch of stainless blades in today. So I have quite the week ahead!!
