As of today we no longer are at the top of google due to the site going down.. :cry: But once google sort itself out we will be back on top :shock: ..

Give it a week or 2...

17-11-2005, 11:35 AM
Cant really remember.
Either through one of my many craft searches or it was linked to a craft site.

17-11-2005, 08:04 PM

A search on google for a craft forum. Was SO pleased to find something in the UK


22-11-2005, 05:11 PM
Mee to, Id found another craft site which had an odd unappealing layout, I didnt warm to it but this is very inviting.

Odd how graphics can effect things.

22-11-2005, 05:30 PM
Thanks again..

Been a bit quite this week but hopefully google going to sort it out and work out that the forum isn't 100k of page...

This thread more compliments than referrals.. Wow :shock:

24-11-2005, 12:06 PM
Yes, I joined via google as well!!!

09-12-2005, 02:19 PM
I did a web search (not Google!) and this site came out near the top. :D I was looking for something in the UK as there seems to be a lot of US sites out there.

Everyone seemed really friendly so I decided to stay. :lol:

09-12-2005, 05:04 PM

Did a search for UK Craft Forums and guess what?

You either came out top or near it and looked better to me!

25-09-2006, 12:21 PM
Same as many others: searched for 'craft forums' on Google!

13-10-2006, 08:35 PM
I was surfing the net, new on line, . Not many of my friends are into crafts so it appeared a great idea to have a "chat" with others to share ideas etc:p

23-10-2006, 02:52 PM
I just looked up craft forums on msn, I wanted somewhere where i could talk to other crafters and also show people what i do.

Theres a great demand for these sites i think, but not many about:rolleyes:

23-10-2006, 11:51 PM
google search, but not for craft forums - I was looking for craft fairs, found the site and loved it!

........Sorry I've been so slow....the dreaded tonsilitis struck again this past week, so I've felt (no pun intended) really bad. It's going, slowly but surely though, I might even attempt some sewing now I'm no longer on happy pills.....:nopity:

I love the Craftsfoum, even though I've only been here a wee while, and I think all those who have just joined will find it really helpful too!


24-01-2007, 04:40 PM

I did a search for craft fairs and the link to this site kept coming up on the first page. I kept ignoring it. Then curiosity got the better of me (plus there was a network problem at work and could only access t'internet hahah!) and here I am!!!

I find the layout great, love the little smilers that can be added in :mf: Must remember to use them more often.

And I've posted a few replies. Found it really useful too. And glad to know that I'm not the only one with a messy house! Hahahah!!:D

Great to be here!

I googled uk bead magazine and this was one of the things that came up.

31-07-2007, 12:34 PM
I was surfing the web for people's experience with Tuggle and I came across it. Very cool. Like the UK-based version of the American-based Switchboards.

I enjoyed Switchboards, but saw UK Craft Websites, and liked that it is European-based.

12-09-2007, 08:16 AM

Hi found you through google search.


13-10-2007, 11:23 AM
i was continuing the eternal search for events to sell at and the forum came up on a search cos someone asked a similar question!
i do recognise a few names from the uk-beaders site though

14-10-2007, 12:54 PM
I was looking for liability insurance, and this was the most helpful site!

15-10-2007, 04:38 PM
Hi all,
I found this site off google. Anyway, I make jewelleries, and also rescue them, basically get them recycled, making them looking spanking new. I also design appliques on clothings as well as recycling, reconstruct clothes too. I draw other designs as well as make my own fabric pendants etc.
i'm currently looking to find someone to share a booth with me at portobello market or may just sell my stuff solo, or maybe ask one of the vendors over there if they like to share. anyhow, i'm currently working on my portfolio so i can show and tell to some artsy companies.
i'm in london by the way :)

15-10-2007, 08:39 PM

Hi there.
I was looking for something completely different when I followed a link to you guys!
Happy crafting.

31-10-2007, 09:48 PM
Hi I'm new here.

I found you through Etsy.com. I've tried a few of the artists there, but I really liked this site with cute little dog sewing patterns - do a search for Mod edit - sorry, no advertising until 25 posts.

03-11-2007, 05:22 PM
Hello everyone. I discovered this forum quite by chance when searching the internet for a simple way to cover polystyrene balls for christmas tree ornaments. I can't think how to do it neatly. I'd be grateful for any suggestions.

But as an introduction, I'm basically a weaver, but just beginning to run a craft group for people with dementia - hence the need to cover the balls.

One problem I have is that I'm visually impaired, so it makes things a bit more difficult. I'd like to do some embroidery, albeit with coarser wools etc, but need to find a way to mark the fabric with the pattern, so I can embroider it.

However, I didn't want this message to sound like a shopping list of requests. What I really wanted to say was it's good to know crafts are still so popular, and there's still such a lot of enthusiasm out there.

Look forward to plenty of chat.

some few days ago I look for in google about handicraft forum and I find this forum

03-12-2007, 04:19 PM
I was just googling for a few ideas on how to get more involved in craft fairs, public liability insurance and stuff and this place kept coming up!
I figured it would be smart to join up and join in as there was tonnes of useful stuff on here!

11-12-2007, 12:31 PM
I was after a UK based forum for handy craft, well, this site was the first one that came up.

Are gonna look through all the interesting threads soon soon.

Have a nice day!!

12-12-2007, 09:36 PM
I can't remember to be honest, I think I was Googling for something and the answer may have been on here, so I came in, had a look and sort of got lost and can't find my way back out :pc:

But that's ok, cos I have found a nice warm corner to sit in and watch proceedings. :mf:

19-12-2007, 05:53 AM
trough google with key craft forum

Very boringly.. I too came thru google. But interestingly I wasn't looking for a forum.. :confused: It appeared at the side when my request for a certain thread couldnt be found.. But glad I found you all:mf:

29-12-2007, 05:07 PM
I went on Google search and put in knitting forum and found you.
Love Jackie

I too found this site through Google. I was looking up Trade Fairs in my area (Devon). I have never taken my cards to a Craft Fair, so was looking to see if there were any around. There doesnt seem to be, so am thinking of trying to start one up locally. We have a Parish Magazine come once a month, so I may put an advert in there to see if anyone else is interested.

12-01-2008, 02:28 PM
Was doing google search for Craft Fairs in Herts and you came up. Started reading and liked the look of your forum so here I am.

17-01-2008, 02:35 AM
Damian linked this forum to me via a Googlechat conversation this evening. I guess he's not a member here though, or I don't know his ID here, because it wouldn't let me credit him. Thank you for the nudge though, Damian.

17-01-2008, 05:41 PM
:) i think i was searching for craft fairs, and this came up!!but its brilliant, i am already very addicted when i should be creating my crafts!damn you!!!!I hope it helps to jump start many crafters careers, i know it has given me some great advice already.

Thankyou craft form!!!

funnily enough i was doing a search for most haunted and an off topic discussion in here came up!
but i was glad i found it!:pc:

21-01-2008, 02:54 PM
Well I'll be a bit different to all you Googlies. I found the forum through swirly's blog page.. Confess I am a bit of a fan (tho' not made any purchases yet). It was the photo of the ironing mountain that had me hooked!!!! Plus I'm a Lindsey too. LOL

23-01-2008, 08:46 AM
HI everyone. I found the forum by looking for Tuggle. I too have been with them for a long time but with very poor results. Trying to comunicate with them is impossible. I simply can not get them to reply to my e-mails. Anyway enough complaining!! I look forward to being a part of this forum.

Hi there, I was just searching for craft fairs in & around the North West and one of my many google-clicks brought me here. I found one of the threads really useful, someone asking all the same questions I have, so I'm hoping this will be a friendly helpful place to be - Shaz:)

24-01-2008, 12:15 PM
Hey there! I found the forum on good old google using the search term 'Craft fairs in Hampshire'.
Best wishes

25-01-2008, 08:47 PM

I was searching for sites related to Crafts. I'm not a crafts person but am interested in Crafts, their history and the way that they are marketed. I'm a member of a few genealogy websites where queries relating to ancestors who were crafts people pop up on a regular basis.

I see that this site is for UK Craftspeople only and would like to know if that includes Northern Ireland as I searched your site for Belfast and obtained a NIL result. Would that be because your site has not yet been found by Belfast crafts people? I've done another search and found Northern Ireland mentioned.


25-01-2008, 11:36 PM
No Christopher - we just have to work out whether NI has decided to be in the UK this decade, or is it the next one? :D

26-01-2008, 12:16 AM
Like many, I was searching for dolls and craft related sites and this came up. Was reading for quite a while before signing up. :)

28-01-2008, 03:14 PM
I googled jewellery blog and you came up.
I'm a jeweller running my gallery in Somerset.
It'll be good to exchange stuff with other creative people.
Being self employed can isolate you a bit. (violins?):pc:

28-01-2008, 04:25 PM

I was looking for a craft business forum on Google and this website popped up.

I teach papercrafts and design and make wedding stationery. It can be lonely working on your own and I am looking to make some new friends

:jippie:I was recommended by a fellow crafter at a fair. Iv love reading through the forum. Learnt loads, especially about etsy and tuggle as i didnt know about these sites. I think im going to adventure that way!

It's great to be able to hear what other crafters are doing and there achievements.

Found you on google. I was searching for ways to promote my handmade jewellery and your forum came up. Cool site...

16-02-2008, 01:42 PM

Bit like Anne really. I was stumbling around the net looking for places to sell and found this forum as a bonus! Can't remember exactly where or how though!
Soooo glad I joined. Through this forum I have learnt so much and I only joined last week!

I was searching for a Hollander beater and a thread from this site jumped right into my lap (Vicar!). So I had to join so that I could talk to the person who had the said beater.
Mind you, now I'm in I will be popping back to check things out.
Must say though that its odd to be described as a junior crafter at my age and with 16 years teaching experience! Makes me feel young again.

I found this site via google looking for crafting in general I think and I'm just glad that I did find it :)

02-04-2008, 12:10 PM
I also found this site through good old google, I think I was looking up craft fairs or something similar.

07-04-2008, 05:17 PM
I was looking into buying sizzix dies on ebay but as i'd only heard of them didn't know i'd need a machine etc. I asked a seller some questions and she suggested looking on a crafting forum. I looked on a search engine and stumbled across this one.

Love it! I've learnt so much more about my craft and get inspiration from other peoples ideas.

08-04-2008, 10:36 PM
my mum told me about this forum as she is getting into computers and we both like crafts, i think she also found it from google! thanks

Googled craft fairs and this little site popped up and said "hello, come on in the water's fine at this time of year." :)

23-04-2008, 12:19 PM
It was mentioned on a working from home/mums forum - I think I followed a link from there.

23-04-2008, 12:24 PM
I think i did a google search. :D

23-04-2008, 02:05 PM
I found it though forum member Sparklez. I was googling for craft fairs in Edinburgh and it came up with a post Sparklez had added about a craft fair in Edinburgh and the rest (as they say) is history!!!

Thanks Sparklez ;)


05-05-2008, 11:09 PM
I googled

'crafts forum uk'

& this was obviously the first thing that came up! I looked at other sites but this one seemed the most alive so here I am!


07-05-2008, 04:59 AM
I found your forum with a search on google for craft forum.

13-05-2008, 10:11 PM

I found your website on Google ( such a wonderful thing this googling).
I am into handwoven silk scarves and handcrafted wooden bracelets. Would like to find fairs or forums where i can display my wares.
Can you suggest? Thanx

21-05-2008, 04:24 PM
I searched for information on polymer clay and this site came up as the first hit on google so i had a look didnt get exactly the answer i wanted but everyone seemed to be friendly and welcoming and before i knew it i had signed up to my first forum posted my first question and got some great help and advise from you lovely people Now i am simply addicted and will definitely tell every crafter i know!!

21-05-2008, 05:57 PM

finding it all very helpful and friendly! thanks:D

21-05-2008, 06:32 PM
I genuinely havent a scooby how I found the forum but it was about 6pm last night when i was doing a wee bit of last minute surfing before going out to see THE OSMONDS 50th anniversary concert ....woohoooo
I registered but then couldnt activate my registration because I had to go.....lol.....no i was desperate to go!
So everything last night before I left for the concert is all a blur!:D

I was looking for recycled crafts when I came upon this site. I am in the process of setting up a scrapstore and I am compiling as many craft ideas as I can. I am aiming at the primary school market first and will be making up kits to sell as well as opening a shop.

Google search for polymer clay too.

I've had a quick glance at the forums the first two posts I read had me nodding to myself :D they were highlighting impulse buys.

Need some free time to get reading.

26-05-2008, 03:33 PM

Googled craft fairs surrey june, and your site came straight up!


26-05-2008, 04:38 PM
my name is Sue H. I'm not quite sure how I came across this forum - it just seemed to appear LOL. But now I'm here I hope my many questions will be answered and to find out things I didnt know I needed to know :)
My hubby and I started selling wooden toys last year and now are making our own stuff to sell. Wood is sooo cool! Am I OTT?

01-06-2008, 01:43 AM
Recommendation from an existing member - Urbtaf. Have to say thanks cos its a great site.

02-06-2008, 09:11 AM
I just Google'd it. A few came up, but this one is from uk. Must say it looked the best and it is.

03-06-2008, 03:50 PM
Hi i am very new to crafting having caught the bug of my mother and my daughter lol... And i found this site by using Google .;)


05-06-2008, 10:22 PM
Hi There,

very boring just did a search on google for craft forums and there you were.

Hope this helps


07-06-2008, 10:51 PM
I found it searching in google "craft forum"

10-06-2008, 02:11 PM
I was looking for info on embossing and google got me here. I wasn't looking for a craft forum but I liked it so much I thought I'd stick around. x

12-06-2008, 03:44 PM
I'm a google girl.....you came right at the top of the search, so you must be the place to be!!!

I'm lovin this place already

13-06-2008, 01:19 PM
I typed jewellery forums into google and you came up near the top, good work :first:

15-06-2008, 05:30 PM
It was not that long ago and I can already not remember. But i either searched for a craft forum on yahoo (I actually think this might not have been the way) or from jumping from link to link and by pure chance, but it was the best find ever.
Thanks for your existance, makes mine much easier :mf:

15-06-2008, 06:11 PM
I found you all through facebook of all places! I was bored one night and couldn't sleep so was flicking through facebook and there was a link there to here......and you don't get rid of me that easily :D:D:D

19-06-2008, 09:55 AM
Hi there

I was looking at a craft website and this site appeared, i think! i am new to crating and I am in the process of stocking my craft box. Perhaps someone could explain to me how I go about selling at a craft fair, what are the rules and roughly hw much is it to have a stool etc.. thank you

19-06-2008, 04:09 PM
We have a national forum on the website, you have this forum, to register on, this forum looks very good (sorry, my English said the bad)

19-06-2008, 04:27 PM
Google. I put in craft forums & you came at the top, I think!

20-06-2008, 11:01 AM
Hi Sticky
I found you when I was desperately looking for some small piece of craft equipmentwhich, by the way, I didn't find.
I am looking forward to getting involved.

20-06-2008, 12:06 PM
I googled craft fairs, then came across a post on here by Apple Tree Craft Fairs.
I also came across it when looking for advice on craft fair displays on a seperate occasion.

Hope it helps.

24-06-2008, 08:51 AM
i found it by googling crafts..........

i started out on esty and was amazed at what a comprehensive place it was - and also the amount of US based craft promo places - though 'there must be something uk based too' .............

24-06-2008, 06:36 PM
Howdy, search engine directed me to your great forum. I love reading mail sent in by these super crafters. It's very encouraging to know that there are so many crafters here who give advise. Love this forum.:nopity:

24-06-2008, 07:37 PM
Aye, found you in google but Im not good at this forum lark! Just posted a question on dying satin shoes and I have no idea where it went or even if it did go! Will persevere as I love the idea of picking others brains xx

25-06-2008, 04:13 PM
I too googled craft forum and found this - did go on another one a few times but found it boring.:horse:

25-06-2008, 04:15 PM
I searched the internet for a craft site to share ideas...and this seemed the best!

27-06-2008, 11:12 AM
I'm quite sensitive - maybe i'm not cut out for this forum lark - but i only joined a while ago and have not posted much as i've been very, very busy. But i've just had my face slapped for asking some simple questions - so i'm going to reverse back out. I am sure that no-one cares a hoot but maybe someone could think that perhaps it is not the best way to attract new people here - perhaps new people are not wanted. I just wanted to meet and chat.
Sorry for joining.

Amazing what a little casual surfing can lead to! I was just looking for crafty type things on the web - typed in UK crafts (at least I think I did!) and you popped up! Haven't even skimmed the surface yet there's so much to look at!

30-06-2008, 12:57 AM

I was on Google looking for acrylic paints ... and here I am LOL

01-07-2008, 08:22 PM
I just was looking for some forum where people talk about ideas, crafts, new techniques and share with other crafters so I googled "craft forum uk"

06-07-2008, 11:10 AM
I found the forum by similar search: uk forum arts

06-07-2008, 02:52 PM
I walked into the Forum broom cupboard and no-one will let me out.

Please, somebody, at least spare me some food...


P.S. I think I googled "craft fair wiltshire" when I was looking to find my first event many moons ago. I found a thread which mentioned a local event, joined up a few days later and have never looked back since.

06-07-2008, 07:46 PM
I found these craft forums much the same as everybody else, I googled for craft fairs after my first ( rather badly attended ) craft fair and it came up with the craft fair forum.
Everybody has been lovely since I joined and although I'm not a regular poster I'm normally lurking somewhere, I don't answer many questions as I'm pretty much self taught and really not sure if I'm doing half the stuff right anyway,lol.
I use the suck it and see method...I try till I either get it right or break down in frustrated tears.
Anyway thanks to all the guys and girlies who are always ready to lend an ear and give out tips and advice for free to us all
