I'm sure most of you will have seen various facebook posts and tweets from me about CRAFTfest and if anyone is wondering what it's all about then all shall be revealed...here...now!
CRAFTfest isn't just an online craft fair, it's a whole new experience when it comes to shopping online.
The appeal is from bost ends of the spectrum:
Sellers: Ever wanted to have a go at a craft fair but couldn't afford? Don't drive? Not quite worked up the courage?
Buyers: Ever seen adverts for craft fairs and would love to go but don't drive, don't want to cart the kids around with you, bad weather put you off?
CRAFTfest is for you as there's no travelling involved. Using interactive photo albums as your "stall" sellers from across the country will be showcasing their items and giving people the opportunity to buy these items from the comfort of their own living room!
There were over 140 stalls involved over 2 days at the one in September including me and from first hand experience it was fab! A lot of the sellers were working together to get it advertised locally using flyers, on facebook, twitter, blogs and the creative connections site itself.

All sellers are being allocated a team leader for queries and I'm very pleased to say I'm the leader of the pink team. Idea of these teams is to work together to discuss ideas, answer queries and publicise the event as much as possible. But we're also relying on potential buyers to spread the word for us too!
The whole thing is sponsored by Creative Crafting magazine and is available for 48 hours on 26th and 27th November so put it in your diaries and apply now to get your space as they're filling up fast!
