1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Baby Blanket on: October 23, 2008 04:36:22 PM
Anyone interested in joining me in a baby blanket knitalong? Any size, any pattern - I just want some company Smiley

I have just started what I hope to be a 1 square meter moss stitch blanket. It took me half an hour to cast on (cause I'm using 4-ply yarn and small needles)!
2  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Selling at crafts market on: January 28, 2007 06:18:02 PM
I'm getting ready for my very first craft market, and I was wondering if anyone knows whether or not I need an ABN? I thought that I wouldn't need to set up as a "proper" business if I earning below a certain amount. Since this is a once off thing, I wasn't going to bother (I'm really just testing the waters first, to see if my products will sell, and I will be lucky to break even). However, someone told me that if I am selling things "officially", like at a market, I need to get my ABN, register a Business Name, register for GST, get insurance etc.
Any Aussie crafters out there with experience with selling at markets? Can you sell casually without setting up a full on business?
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Different ranges on: January 17, 2007 06:17:12 PM
Hi everyone!
I am getting ready for my very first craft fair. I will be selling jewelery and various felted things. Do you think it's all right to have different ranges of the same products? What I mean is something like, a steel range of jewelery, and the same designs in a (more expensive) silver or gold range? Or with the felted things, the same products available in different types of felt, like Polyester range and 100% Merino range ? I want to make stuff with the better materials, but I'm afraid that the prices I will need to ask would be too high for many sales. On the other hand, I don't just want to have the cheap stuff, and be known for producing cheap things! It's a proper craft market, not a seconds/junk markets so I hope most of the people who go would be the type to recognise quality materials, but I'm not sure, because using better materials pretty much doubles the cost.
