I like the idea of featuring different areas of the UK because it would give everyone a chance to feature their work, county by county if that was the way they decided to divide up the UK. But as with ‘My Favourite Piece’ as theme of the day I think it would have to be limited to one piece per maker otherwise it would be too huge. Different areas are featured in gift guides from time to time, but that is at the discretion of the Folksy Team as to who to feature - at least that is how I understand it to be.
