  • Newbie looking to get some tips and to get involved!!

    Hi all!

    I recently set up my own business selling quirky button jewellery I create myself. Today I did my first craft fair and although the turn out was disappointing, it was good practice and I really enjoyed it! It was really refreshing to see talented people creating gorgeous individual pieces that weren't extortinately priced!

    I'm passionate about what I do, and rather sad today for being on here gone midnight on a Saturday night, but I am massively enthused after today and want to lay as much groundwork as possible to spread the word about my creations!

    I have been doing research into loads of different craft fairs and organisations to join, but wanted to find out which are the best ones to do? I'm crrently based in Lincoln, but am from Manchester so am looking for fairs and events close to either place!

              Hello everyone!

              Hi!

              Yes, this a great website. So many creative people!

              I have recently joined this website so I can't start my own thread yet.

              I just wondered if anyone knows a soap maker in Surrey?

                  Hi and welcome. I am originally from the Manchester area and now in Scotland! Check out the Manchester Craft Mafia..google it. It may be suitable for you I make a little bit of button jewellery too, along with beaded stuff. I love the bead shop in Aflecks (Ialways visit when back 'home')
                  I am sure you will love the forum it is full of great tips and you can usually 'search' most things you have questions about
