Hello everyone, I’m very new to this so any help, advice, words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated. Look forward to speak to lots of you on here and getting lots of support and hopefully giving some as well. I’m slowly adding more things to my shop but its very early days.
Having already tried one site that was very hard I finally decided to join here about a week ago, I would say the best piece of advice I every got was, learn to be patient this is a marathon not a sprint.
Much luck to you and have fun as well Jacqui Draco’s Attic

Hi I am Carolyn from Cambridge I have been with Folksy about 18 months. I love to sew but bag making is what I enjoy the most anything from makeup bags to tote bags and knitting bags, when I am not making bags I am making curtains , roman blinds and home furnishings.
It has been nice to read all about everybody and where they are from.
had my folksy page for a couple of months, only just now starting to add items and generally working out how everything works. should be some fun having other peeps to talk to
I’m new here, new to Folksy, just opened and started stocking my shop and I thought I’d introduce myself. My name is Pippa and I’m a paper addict. (Sounds like I should be at an AA meeting!) I make books and that’s mainly what I’ll be selling. I was going to call my shop The Basket Case but all the marketing gurus said that a shop name should reflect my products not myself!
Look forward to meeting fellow makers. Enjoy the rest of this lovely Friday evening.
My name is Kathy Allen and I love to make craft.
I make handmade cushion covers from sales duvets. new.
no luck to sell at the mo. tried e bay no joy.
My name is Kelly and I joined Folksy last night. I make gifts for little ones such as quilts, booties, bibs etc.
I am just starting to get to grips with everything and I am looking forward to the amazing support network I have read all about x
Hello to all the talented people out there. Jan hit the nail on the head - I’m still trying to find the loo and the canteen
From what I’ve seen so far I’m loving it, as working on your lonesome can be an isolated existence.
This takes me back to the 1980’s using the AOL chat rooms. I was a sad muppet then and obviously I still am - sitting smiling at a screen and wittering on about not a lot.
Enough muppetry, the sewing machine is beckoning.
Hi Perry and I are new to Folksy and just saying hello. We are called proseprints and making hand painted lino prints and hope to raise money for conservation charities. Really impressed with everyones craft and art work - really beautiful items for sale. Hope you all do well.
