@PaulinesCrafts and @dottiedesigns - I see from the website that you sold items here in 2013. As this is very close to where I live, I wondered if you could give me some feedback on how you did and whether you’d recommend it. Please private message if you’d like to share the experience! No worries if you’d prefer not to either. Thanks! Heidi

(Pauline Hayward) #9

(Susan Bonnar) #10

Actually I think it is a different one again if you follow the link from the website - making fabric calenders etc x


(Pauline Hayward) #11

Blimey there’s more.


(Pauline Hayward) #12

Your right it is another dottie designs. Your breeding like rabbits.


(Susan Bonnar) #13

Nope - I am original and they are breeding duplications lol! There are also lots of dotty designs!!

Hello Heidi,

Its always a good idea to get feedback from others and feel free to call me if you have any other questions, We are a friendly bunch ! and its always lovely to hear from new craft makers. There is also a useful FAQ’s section on the website under the “For crafters” page We are currently at our maximum pre-opening number of makers, but there may be a little more space after opening.

Best Wishes
Sophie

Thanks for the replies! @PaulinesCrafts I can’t see a private message though. I’m not sure if I’m looking in the right place though as I can’t find any message options at all!!!


(Pauline Hayward) #16

Hi @Textiletreasure If you scroll to the top of the folksy forums and click on your name near the speach bubble, that will give a list down the left hand side and then it should come up with messages as well, it should be in there. Also you should have got an email.


(Robyn Mc Clean) #17

hello , I would be very interested ! hope theres still some space !


(Heidi Meier) #18

Hello! I have done that but there aren’t any emails in there, just my Folksy welcome message…


(Pauline Hayward) #19

That’s strange.
Here’s what i sent.
Hi Heidi
If you live close to Sophie TannenbaumBarn I would certainly recommend contacting her. She’s very helpful in such a way that we arranged last year for her to collect my items in person on her way back from seeing family in Devon. That also saved me a lot of money in postage fee’s. It was such a pleasure working with her. I’m not providing anything this year solely because I haven’t really got much new that she hasn’t already had in the last 2 years.
Sales were pretty good in both those 2 years and the commission she took was very reasonable. Payment was very prompt once the season was over and items that didn’t sell were well packed on return.
I hope this helps towards deciding what to do and if you go ahead I wish you success.

Pauline

Thanks Pauline! I wonder if it’s an iPad thing - sometimes things on a web page just disappear when you are looking at them from an iPad… X
