FarmVille Craftshops: You can build them, but you can't use them (yet)
Attention farmers! The FarmVille Craftshop has started to slowly rollout to certain (lucky) players. Just as we predicted (this evening too!), you'll need to build this new building using three new construction materials: Spools of Twine, Hammers and Concrete.
You'll need 10 of each of these ingredients to build your Craftshop (thank goodness it's not more, since we're all starting out with zero stockpiles), with these items available to send to your friends via the game's free gifts page. You can also earn these items by looking inside the frame of your Crafting Shop and then asking your friends to send you these items - basically, it's the same setup as every other building, but with different ingredients.
Unfortunately, once you build the Craftshop, it doesn't really do anything. Ok, it does nothing currently, but we are given this image as a confirmation that new crafting abilities will be "coming soon." Specifically, the image says that we can "Make farm aides, decorations, and much more."
Remember, a lot of these crafting items (at least those pictured) look to be those that we can already earn from other methods (Love Potions, Bottles, and the Fertilize Alls), so perhaps these are just placeholder images for what will be a much more exciting feature down the line? We can only hope that that's the case.
What we do know is that a new quest line comes along with the release of the Craftshop, and that the first quest in the set will require you to complete two tasks:
Buy the Craftshop
Fertilize 25 Plots on Neighbors' Farms
We'll make sure to bring you the news on the other missions in this Craftshop series just as soon as we can, so keep checking back.
