11  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Marketing a crafty business that doesn't "make" anything on: May 08, 2009 04:55:41 PM
 It is exactly a multi-workshop. It's 2500 sq. ft. so all the area are contained and separate so no saw dust on fabric or metal shavings in the laser. We just started a monthly crafty meet up with fliers all over, but that's geared more towards fabric artists.

 I have been wearing my shirts all over town and even talk to strangers at flea markets, etc about it. I guess that's just the best way to do it!

 Thank you for the advice Smiley

Just had to let everyone know that TechShop is having a half off sale on memberships through the end of May. Awesome deals!

That very well may be the coolest thing I have ever seen. Ever.

YAY! And please feel free to spread the word! I'll be hitting up fabric stores with fliers this week.

We've decided to hold it the last Saturday of every month starting this month (May 30th), 6pm til 10pm. You can bring your own fabric (this month is a great month to use up the ugly fabrics in your stash) or we have a bin of fabric here the instructors have brought in. We will probably talk to the Scrap Exchange people about it because we love them.  Just remember to bring your own sewing machine or we have machines here, but you have to be "certified" to use them and that costs $15 (it's an insurance thing).

 You can RSVP by e-mailing frontdesk at techshopdurham dot com. There's no size limit, but we'd like to have an idea of how many people to plan for.
16  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Plastic bag upcycling question on: May 01, 2009 09:25:32 AM

 Not sure if this goes here, but I'm not sure where to put it.

 Is anyone else a little concerned with the new fad in turning plastic bags into clothes, bags, etc? It seems a lot of the buzz I'm hearing is people being excited to get new plastic bags rather than use cloth reusable ones. Now, I understand that the plastic bags are being converted to something more durable for long term use, but isn't it counter productive if people are now resorting back to getting new bags?

More plastic bags being consumed = more plastic bags being made = sad Earth

 It will be once a month on the same day (first Saturday, last Wednesday, something like that). Is there a day of the week that people prefer? Right now it looks we're trying to aim towards the end of the month and possibly a weekend evening. For the first one, I think we'll be doing cage blankets forwww.snugglesproject.org. It's an easy, no stress project that is great for stash busting, trying new seam techniques, and improving basic construction skills for new crafters.

 TechShop in Durham is starting a monthly Crafting for a Cause night where people can come and bring their machines, knitting needles, crocheting hooks, etc to make items to donate to various charities. I'm one of the sewing instructors organizing it and we'd love to have some other Craftster members come out! We'll be putting the info on our website in the next few days so if you want to meet crafty people while doing some good, come on out Smiley
19  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Marketing a crafty business that doesn't "make" anything on: April 30, 2009 05:20:07 PM

 My business is actually a giant space with machines and set ups for metal working, woodworking, sewing, laser-ing, and a whole bunch of things crafty people would love to have access to without buying, but I don't know how to market it!

 Everyone I talk to loves the concept, but traffic to the space is slow.

 Any ideas?
20  UNITED STATES / North Carolina / Kilns? on: April 24, 2009 02:39:53 PM
 Does anyone know if there are kilns the public can use anywhere in the Triangle? I'm having trouble finding that info. Are there any pottery studios that allow you to fire your own pieces (not a paint your own plate place)?

 Thank you!
