Embroidery magazine has loads of contemporary artists in it. It's the magazine from the Embroiderers Guild

I organise small scale fairs in Bristol at http://www.thingsfromhere.co.uk and I just took part in the Very Bazaar which was in London. I think part of the problem is we just aren't so well networked over here- fewer people have websites and there's more trawling around to find like minded people. Start your own! In Birmingham you're in the perfect place to lure people in from all over the country!

With ebay if you sell over a certain amount of stuff they are obligated to inform the tax people- it's something that's happened to us at http://www.thingsfromhere.co.uk because the turn over on our ebay store has been really high.
Also you don't need to pay VAT until you are making a lot of money (like was mentioned) but if you are importing/exporting the rules all change, which is something to watch out for.

I did a fair in Bristol at the weekend at The Folk House- I think if we could get enough people to have stalls it could be a great venue for  craftermath. Other than that of course http://www.thingsfromhere.co.uk is always available for craftermath craziness.

I joined- I'm not on myspace all that often because I got sick of getting email offers of marriage! I just  posted my introduction over there.

and I vote for Howard Moon- Vince would just spend way too much time on his hair to be any fun. Now Howard on the other hand...mmmm mustachio!

Definately interested!
I organise a small scale 'alternative' craft fair at here shop and gallery in Bristol- but would love to take part in a bigger kind of fair, I think there's probably a lot of people who would be into it.
One of the main things would be keeping costs down I think- at our fairs we sell spaces for just 5, but I have taken part in something that cost 200 for a space- I shared that with someone else, but even so only just broke even over two days. A lot of indie crafters don't have huge amounts of money so it would be really important to keep the price of a space down to a reasonable amount- most of the places I do fairs at seem to charge 10-20, but again they are all fairly small spaces, with maybe 30 people selling at the most.
I don't really have much time to give to organising anything, but i'd be happy to answer any questions you can think up.
I also think publicity is a really important thing to consider- and on that note, let me tell you that there's three fairs coming up soon that still have spaces in!

It's pretty funny actually- they contacted Jane about it with a kind of 'what are you doing making money out of John Peel's death' type angle, and ended up hearing all about our lovely little shop- shame they didn't actually provide a link!

I guess here would be a good place to mention the craft fairs we've got coming up (sorry if i'm crossposting this all over the place)

January 21st.

They're all happening at the shop  between 12.30 and 6pm. There's still spaces available if you want to take part, and it only costs 5 for a space- there's going to be music and food and drink as well as a whole bunch of craftiness- it would be great to meet some more crafty folk. Email me or send me a PM if you want to take part.

I'd be up for meeting with some Bristol/Bath type people- and i'd happily offer the shop/gallery as a space to meet if people wanted to- there's only a few nights a month that other people use it for meetings, and there's always Stitch n Bitch as well...
