Share your Folksy High Fives 2022

Every Wednesday on Instagram and Facebook, we’re celebrating your wins and sharing good vibes with Folksy High Fives! :raised_hands:

Please use this space to tell us your good news - what have you achieved lately in your creative endeavours that you’re proud of? All wins count - big or small! It could be listing your first ever item on Folksy, reaching 100 sales, doing your first craft fair, finding a new stockist, getting a big order or an unusual commission, being featured in the press or a new exhibition, learning a new embroidery stitch, making an Instagram reel, getting your head around TikTok!

Whatever it is that’s got you doing a happy dance, we want to know!

We’ll then choose a selection to share on Instagram and Facebook on Wednesday mornings using the #folksyhighfives hashtag (which you can use to post on your own channels too).

Let’s hear your positive news! :sparkles: :rainbow:

Hi Sophia.
Happy New Year!
I’m very excited that I’ve made it onto the top 30 Best Sellers on Folksy after this weekend. I launched a new product on Friday, a handmade padded heart with a snowdrop applique, and they have sold really well already! Helen

Hi. That us good news! I have just created my best cabochon wiring to date. I have been making jewellery for over 20 years but more recently I have taught myself wire wrapping and weaving. Five years ago I lost my sight but with magnification I can still work. My attention to detail is eveen better as a result.
I have just posted my best ever piece of wire worked pendant. The cabochon is beautiful, so I kearbt a new weave on Pinterest and have used it to Great effect with this stone.
I have not sold much on Folksy as my workin* is slow and.I sell so much locally. Now I am pumping up my, profile to increase online sakes.

Chuffed that my friend bought a Valentine’s card from Folksy after I sent her the link thinking it was just perfect for her and her hubby. Not my own sale but I’m pleased to be spreading the news about the wonderful makes on Folksy!

Excited to see my shop at number 3 on Folksy’s Best Selling Shops today. I’ve been working until midnight every night to restock my shop a little so it’s lovely to see the long days are rewarding.

I’ve had a good week. My 50th sale on Folksy, then taking part in the great charity pot and print fair at the weekend which enabled me to raise funds for my local foodbank and get enough sales to feature in the Folksy bestseller list!
