What do we have for you today? Well, we have a member focus, a new member to meet and an announcement about the Christmas CRAFTfest event!
Lets go in reverse order. The forms have now closed for the Christmas MEGAFest event at Creative Connections. This year there are a whopping 250 stalls! Many of our members will be there so if you aren't taking part do still pop along and support them during 24 November - 1st December. There is also a soft opening on 23rd for Black Friday.
If you haven't taken part in an event before there is a waiting list up for the March one so that you will be notified when the forms open. It truly is a fantastic marketing experience. You can find the waiting list form here
Time is certainly zooming past isn't it! Are you busy getting your businesses all prepared for Christmas? I am hearing lots of different things at the moment, some crafters are having lots of sales where others are hoping that it is the quiet before the storm. How are you finding it at the moment?
A quick reminder that our Facebook page is always available if you need any advice from fellow members. Perhaps if you are looking for a specific supply or product. We are a friendly community and are always on the lookout for ways to help eachother. I feel that we should get more involved with Google plus too but am finding it hard to warm to it. How do you all find it? Any tips?
