Hello and welcome back after the holidays, it seems like forever since I last posted, but I needed the rest and I am just finding it a bit hard now to get back into the swing of things, but I am getting there, slowly!
I hope you all had an enjoyable holiday and a well-earned rest, ready for the onslaught of the months leading up to Christmas. If you haven’t started stocking up on materials, planning your makes and booking those christmas fairs, you had better get started, as we all know how hectic it can be.
So speaking of Craft Fairs, if you are organising any events from now until December and your events are not already listed in our Events Calendar, then please feel free to message me with all the details and I will happily include them in the listing. Also, if you would like to do some self promotion of your business and the events you are organising then please get in touch (My email: email@example.com). Our Events tab is one of our most popular searched and visited posts.
I am also going to remind you all about the Craft Directories on here, if you are not already listed, but would like your business included in one or more of the Directories then you can either leave me a message, including the information and contact details you would like to be listed, by commenting below the directory you would like to be included in or you can email me the information if you have problems commenting on the Blog. This also includes all those businesses that either offer workshops, business advice and business services, hopefully there is a place for everyone on here.
One other thing I would like to remind you all of, is that I do love giving anyone who is involved in the Craft Business, whether you are a crafter, supplier and as I said above an event organiser, the opportunity to promote yourselves through this Blog, via our Featured Crafter/Seller/Supplier/Event Organiser articles. It is entirely up to you how you promote yourselves, I can send you a list of questions to help you write the feature or you can write your own feature, long or short I am always happy to include you in the Blog. All I ask is you include some photographs and your contact information along with your article. Which I will then upload and publish. So please don’t be shy and get in touch via my email or by leaving a comment below, letting me know you are interested in being featured.
Lastly I just wanted to remind you all that the very successful and popular Craft Challenge will be resuming again next week and I will be publishing the theme announcement this Friday. All entries must be in by Wednesday 12th September. I hope many of you will join us, regulars and new comers are all welcome to take up the challenge and offers some great promotion opportunities.
Take care and don’t forget to keep in touch with TCN via the Blog and our Facebook page.
