The 'Original' Creative Crafting Magazine written by Crafters, for Crafters

Creative Crafting magazine began in August/September 2009, when a group of crafting friends on the Creative Connections network decided that it would be a good idea to raise awareness of the crafting community. From this point they started work and the first issue of Creative Crafting was published in October 2009 and are still publishing today.

Confirmed Stall Holders for CRAFTfest Sept 2011

CRAFTfest!

Thank you all for the tremendous and totally  unexpected response to our first virtual Craft Fair. We are all greatly looking forward to this weekend and hope that it goes well for everyone.
Don't forget that to make this a success it is VITALLY IMPORTANT that you promote your stall using any methods available to you. Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, even handing out flyers. 
If this fair runs smoothly we will host a Christmas Extravaganza in November, this is a trial run so we apologise for any inconvenience in procedures, we now have an idea of how to make the next one much easier to run.

Please find below a list of Confirmed Stall Holders for this weekend. If we do not have your link please get it to us A.S.A.P. Could we also ask that you check your link to make sure that it is correct as this is the address that will be going on the main stall holders page.

Book your stalls for CRAFTfest!


The first Creative Connections CRAFTfest is here!!! You will be able to create a virtual store and sell your creations from wherever they sit on the web. The fair is open to the public and you only have to be a member to actual sell.
Stalls for the September CRAFTfest are free and CRAFTfest will run over the entire weekend of 17-18th September 2011. If this first fair goes well we will also host a larger one before Christmas to boost those seasonal sales.
You can book your free stalls on the CRAFTfest tab on the network. We require your name, store name, store type (jewellery, knitwear etc) and your email address. We will then send you a sellers pack which will include further information and a digital e-flyer and badges for promotion.
Help us to promote you and your beautiful creations by supporting this Virtual Craft Extravaganza!
