It was a big thing for me, opening up a ‘shop’! I looked at other options available but when I found Folksy, and read the blog, and had a look at the social media etc, the friendly tone and encouraging vibe was so appealing. It seemed like I could be myself and not have to pretend to be someone who knew everything, or someone super important. Also I hoped that I might be able to take part in the community, and be welcome.
I was right! I have always felt so welcome, and encouraged. I have high hopes for my work and endless ambitions of getting it more widely known, and I am super pleased to be here with lots of Folksy ‘friends’ (virtual ones!).
