1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Neopets or Kingdom of Loathing Swap- anyone interested? on: August 03, 2005 11:23:54 AM
I have 2 swaps ending in a couple weeks, and then I'm thinking if there's any interest, I might try my hand at organizing one - either based on Neopets or Kingdom of Loathing.

Is anyone interested? 

Ideas?

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knifty knitters on: July 18, 2005 12:50:17 AM
I don't knit, never learned.  I can (almost crochet.)  Anyways, i found a bunch of knitting 'stuff' in our games closet, which belonged to my mom when she was in high school.  Now I've got a whole set of these round looms (similar to the knifty knitters).  All i can really do with them is make a knitted tube which I can't take off the 'loom' because there are no instructions for finishing it off, and anywhere I've found on the internet never addresses this.  I actually found the demo video, but 'step 5' mysteriously doesn't load.

Anyways, does anyone know anything about these? 

Links, any info would be appreciated.  Smiley

3  Ohio / Ohio: Northeast / Ohio interest in craft show near Steubenville? on: July 07, 2005 03:56:53 PM
I'm involved as an alumni member and assistant director of a high school drama club in Northeast Ohio (near Steubenville).  We were thinking of organizing a DIY/crafts show winter/spring 2006 as a fundraiser.  We don't have any details yet, but we're thinking tables/booths would be between 10-15 dollars plus a donated craft for our auction/raffle/fundraiser.  It would probably be located in/around Steubenville OH or Weirton WV. 

Is anyone interested?  Anyone have any advice?  Has anyone ever organized a show before and has any information I'd need?  Thanks in advance.
4  Pennsylvania / Pennsylvania: Southwest / Pittsburgh Interest in craft show? on: July 07, 2005 03:55:12 PM
I'm involved as an alumni member and assistant director of a high school drama club 45 miles from Pittsburgh (past star lake about 20 minutes) - We were thinking of organizing a DIY/crafts show winter/spring 2006 as a fundraiser.  We don't have any details yet, but we're thinking tables/booths would be between 10-15 dollars plus a donated craft for our auction/raffle/fundraiser.  It would probably be located in/around Steubenville OH or Weirton WV, which is around a 40-50 minute drive (It usually takes me 40 minutes to drive from Steubenville Route 22 into the city).

Is anyone interested?  Anyone have any advice?  Has anyone ever organized a show before and has any information I'd need?  Thanks in advance. 
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Holiday Card Swap Interest on: June 29, 2005 11:11:54 PM
I was thinking it would be interesting to swap a set of holiday cards - for example, everyone would make their partner a box/package/baggie of holiday cards that they could then use at card-sending time.  Maybe something like between 6-8 cards, a few gift tags, etc. ? 

6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Advertising on: December 24, 2004 09:44:38 AM
Where does everyone advertise their websites?  I've only had success really with one webring.

Advice, tips, suggestions on advertising would be appreciated.  What works?  What doesn't work?

7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / I need Opinions on Consignment and in-store events on: December 04, 2004 12:51:40 PM
I've been thinking about trying to find new consignors via the web, and I was wondering what everyone thinks is an attractive consignment agreement, terms, etc.

In our brick and mortar store, we have a strict percentage commission agreement with our crafters, and they bring their items in to us priced with their crafter number on their tags.   We don't charge rent.

If I were to advertise on line for new consignors, I was thinking about having people send digital pictures of their work, and if it fits our store, we would work something out... 

Questions:  Should I have my contract on line for them to read, print, sign and send with their items if we accept them as a consignor?
If so, should it be readily accessible, or should I send them a link after they contact us?
What is an attractive percentage commission?  I've seen other shops charge up to 50% and that seems very high.

I've been working on a website recently, but most of our business (for now, anyways), is done in person in our shop.  It's been here since the early 90's. 

I just would like to know what everyone thinks of consignment shops, pros and cons, what you think is attractive as a crafter when looking into consigning your items, etc.

I'm also thinking of planning a crafter showcase gala in the spring, similar to an art show, but for crafts...  If anyone has any ideas on that, I'd love to hear them too. Smiley
