Hi everyone, I’m Karen from Pedro’s Plaques & Pretty Things. I’m new to Folksy and looking forward to hopefully getting to know some of you a bit better as I figure my way around! I sell hand painted plaques plus crochet hooks and other notions for crafters :slight_smile:

A-M here, I’ve just joined Folksy as Canalside Creations although I did once have a dollhouse miniature shop years and years ago before small children stopped the miniature side of things.

These days I make colourful children’s coat hooks with help from Mr CC who does the woodwork. I’ve still got loads more coat hooks to add, but it’s past 9pm and I am going to bed! So rock n roll right here.

Hi, I love the cards in your shop and especially your style…that is amazing and the colours are so vivid too. I am new on here so hoping to promote my stuff a litle but would also love to help others if I can. Hope all is going good for you.

HELLO!!! Just opened my first Folksy shop! Very exciting experience indeed :slight_smile: so manu beautifully crafted items, so many choices! Just figure i could do some stuff with a laser cutter and good old old elbow grease with some paint, might as well join the club :smiley:
I make hand painted laser engraved acrylic keyrings, so please visit my shop xx

Hello I have discovered Folksy through a Facebook group and though I would give it a go. I enjoy book binding such as making notebooks and small journals, I am completely self taught and decided that maybe I should try and sell a few, so here goes.

Hello! I’ve always crafted, even as a child I was always making things and can never remember learning how to knit and sew as I started so young. I’ve tried lots of other things over the years - more recently cardmaking and papercrafts have taken over from knitting and sewing. I opened my Folksy shop a while ago as I wanted to start and sell some of my items, but life got in the way and I never started selling but that’s going to change soon. I’m hoping to start selling on Folksy early next year and plan on using the next few months to build my stock and learn from the experienced sellers on Folksy.
When I’m not crafting my husband and I love to travel in our campervan - taking my crafting with me for when we have rainy days!

Hi I’m Lou Saddington & my shop is Whimsical Bells. I’ve just defected from the ‘other one’ over to Folksy and looking forward to a bit more success on this platform (hopefully)! All my goods are sewn, the bits up at the moment are quilting or bag making but I’ll be adding my Christmas bits soon which include some hand sewn felt ornaments! Hopefully I’ll get chatting on these forums but thought I’d add to here to introduce myself! Thanks Lou

Hi everyone. I’ve just started on Folksy today. I create crochet bags and accessories. I’ve started with a few bags and will be adding more along with hats and scarves in the coming weeks. Feeling nervous and excited right now, really don’t know what to expect. So much talent and beautiful work on the site though.

Hi! I’m no “Selling” expert (plenty on here tho) Ok, as an art teacher of 11-16 year olds- my advice & main aim…gain as many skills as you can (Drawing, I feel is the back bone of most things we do) Practise, practise, practise. Set yourself challenges that appeal to you- draw or make what you love. Look at what’s around you from every angle possible. Find your style by trying lots of styles and techniques. In terms of what to sell? Research, whats already out there- you can compete or go it alone. I sell, purely to allow me to keep making. If I am lucky, like this month and sell a few of my pots- I can justify buying another bag of clay to make more. I make what I love, what makes me smile, items I can use and I try to improve my skills with each piece. I hope this helps a little- Make, create for you x
