👋 Welcome to the Folksy Forums (Read Me)! Introduce yourself here :)

Hi all you lovely crafters,
I’m Ivon from CamandDoot https://folksy.com/shops/CamandDoot and am based in Wales. I’m returning after a few years break, previously selling bags and cases but am now slowly stocking the shop with some original pen drawings.
Just wanted to say hi and look forward to being part of Folksy again.

Hi everyone, just opened my shop today after weeks of ‘it’s on my to-do list’! I have no clue about pricing, so any advice would be much appreciated.

Hello All
Brand new to Folksy and just getting the store stocked up with a few items ready for Christmas.
We make Fused Glass Goodies, including Jewellery, Flatware, Hangers and mount some of teh smaller pieces on cards to use as Greeting Cards.
We have attended all sorts of crafting workshops over the years, and never ceased to be amazed at the creativity and expertise that people have - some of it shows itself in your on-line stores - thank you.
We are based in a home studio in Shropshire - just a hobby that’s growing, but might become something more.
Can’t wait to see how things progress here.
Thanks for reading - all the best

Hi All, Happy Friday to you. I’m Rebekah of www.rebekahannjewellery.co.uk I’m currently on the look out for new places to sell my work. Folksy looks great. I was just wondering if anyone has any advice?

Thank you so very much.
Warm regards

Hi I’m Katy - I make clothes from pre-loved and vinatge fabrics and use fabric art to embellish jackets. And I’m a bit eco/green/ethical if I can mange it

I love making little dresses from embroidered tablecloths and have just started making little dungarees too (after my bigger ones were successful)

I get tapestries and embroidered pictures from charity shops and use them to embellish jackets - I adore buttons and collect them (but have to be persuaded to use them) and I’m always on the look out for pre-loved haberdashery!

I buy new thread and new poppers but everything else is unused stash from people, charity shops, markets and freecycle.

I use an electric bike to do my shopping and I have solar panels so that and my sewing machine tend to be solar powered but I don’t feel guilty when I can’t manage to be as good as I try to be

I have only been doing this for a few months and I did a fashion show this week showcasing pre-loved vintage and remade clothing & I showed a wedding dress my daughter challenged me to make for a wedding show she wanted to go to.

My photos are pretty poor - I’m working on it & I occasionally get to use my daughter as a model (which makes them better) and she sometimes steals my makes

Hello to everyone - I think I have a lot of reading to do!

Hello dear all.

My name is Martine and I‘m one half of A Feathered Dog Designs.

We opened our Folksy shop only recently and are still finding our way around everything here.

I‘m a self-taught artist. I‘ve started to draw and paint at the beginning of 2016 and I‘m constantly exploring and trying out techniques and colour combinations. I‘m responsible for everything paper or paint related in our shop. I‘m also the public relations person in our team.

Stéphanie is the yarn and fabric woman at A Feathered Dog Designs. She’s quite a knitting addict but also likes to sew and crochet.

We discovered Folksy last year on social media and we totally support this great project of showcasing the super talented community of independent makers and creators.

Hi I am Zoe and I’ve had a Folksy shop for a while, but not done much with it so I’m now back and slowly getting it stocked up again. I make fabric bags, purses and accessories. I use a mixture of new and up cycled or remnant fabrics and try to make my items both useful and pretty! I am looking forward to being part of the Folksy gang again!

Hello. New to Folksy. Just found this forum. I am a bookbinder and an artist, retired and still a student (with Open University). I have been making books for a while now, mostly selling to friends but now trying to sell a few via Folksy as people keep asking if I have a website.

Hi all,
I’m new to Folksy. It’s a bit scary at the moment and I do hope that I’ve posted in the correct place.
I’m really looking forward to learning all about selling on Folksy and it would be good to make new friends too :slight_smile:

Hi delighted to join this supportive community. I’ve just made my first sale which is encouraging but wondered if there’s a way we can help promote each other?
Seasons greetings!
Lynne

Welcome…there are lots of threads on this forum where we help promote each other…it’s worth joining in!

Just wanted to say hello, I’m new to Folksy and new to all this online selling. My name is Nina and I run NMS Hand Knits which pretty much does what it says on the can… I knit :slight_smile: in my case scarves and hats. I love knitting and as I need to work from home these days, in part due to a mobility issue, this seemed like the perfect solution.
I could use advice though about photographing colour, some of my wares look nothing like they do in real life, in the pictures… but them some are fine and I’m doing the same things for both???

Hope everyone had a smashing Christmas.

Hi everyone. I’m Martina and I opened my shop on here earlier this month. It’s called Stitches And Jewels. I make cross stitch pictures, cards, and keyrings. I also make Bead jewellery, and resin items, including jewellery, Bookmarks and more. I am still finding my way and haven’t quite figured out if I have set my shop up properly. Hopefully I have. I’ve spent most of yesterday and today listing items and I hope they will get some attention, and hopefully some sales at some point. Thanks for letting me join Folksy and this forum. Take care and hope you all have a happy new year.

Hi I’m Karen and I opened my shop in late November 2019, www.folksy.com/shops/KESCreations I design and make wire work and stranded gemstone jewellery. Still getting my head round things and any pointers will be most grateful, especially as it’s taken me all this time to find out how to get onto the Forums. Looking forward to interacting with others.

Hello all, I have recently opened my shop and started listing. It’s here

https://folksy.com/shops/SuesWorld

I have been involved in many crafts over the years and textiles and polymer clay have been the ones that have been a constant. So I have listed some hair wraps, and will list a couple of tribal/hippy/belly dance headbands in the next few days. Also want to list macrame jewellery and possibly polymer clay dolls at some point. I am trying to make my photos better and they have improved with practice.

I’m a complete newbie and I’m sure it’s going to take me a long time to figure how all this works, but am excited to have taken the plunge.

Hello there I am not really new as I already have a shop here, this one is a new shop opened today where I am copying over all of my knitted items to separate them from the jewellery. The shop could really do with a little bit of love if you have a bit of spare time. There are only 2 items in there at the moment but I will shortly move the rest of them over.

Hello everyone! Just thought I’d drop in and introduce myself :slight_smile: My name’s Jenny and I run Inky in the Wild. Currently working my way through editing 260+ listings :upside_down_face: so may take some time before my shop is fully stocked but excited to get up and running and hopefully get my first sale on here :crossed_fingers: I’ve been selling on another platform for a few years now but one of my goals for 2020 was to expand, so here I am! Looking forward to getting to know some of you more. Here’s my (under construction) shop so far! Inky in the Wild
