BOOK NOW for CRAFTfest Best of British - 26th - 28th February 2016

Previously our events ran on a separate social network for crafters (Creative Connections) giving a fabulous community feel. This did however, mean that each of our participants had to find the time to upload all of their products onto the network, add descriptions and links etc to each one so that the customers could purchase from them. This also meant that the initial point of contact was always through the network itself and unless the customers clicked through a third time (after visiting their virtual stall and then selecting a product) the chance that the customer  made it through to the sellers own website or online store was smaller.

For our New Improved CRAFTfest events we are cutting out the middle man!

Our events will now be held directly on the CRAFTfest website. The window to your stall will take the customer wherever YOU want them to go at the first point of contact. This can be -
  • Your website (home page, specific category or a new page you made especially for the event)
  • Your online store (Etsy, Folksy, Amazon, Ebay …)
  • Your Facebook or other social networking page.
  • Your blog.
  • Any other online space that you use to sell your creations.
  •  An email address (not recommended but possible.
  •  If you do not have any online presence at all we can arrange to host your products for you for an extra cost. Please contact us for information about this.
We will direct the customers wherever you want them to go ensuring that you get the full benefit to your business.

This also means that you have much less preparation work to do and can devote your time to marketing yourself and others who are taking part.

Book your place for £5 here

The event we are currently booking for is for UK residents only. If you live outside of the UK please let us know where and if you would like to part in an event. If we can get enough interest we can then organise a CRAFTfest event in your country.
