Coffee Chats?

So in an effort to get to know our team members we are going to attempt to schedule some coffee chat sessions in various areas around the state.

I (Felicia Norwood) have scheduled a meeting here in Fort Smith for December 10th between 12:00 noon and 2:00 pm at the Sweet Bay Coffee Company on Rogers next to Creekmore Park.

We would like to thank Sweet Bay Coffee for allowing us to use their space, free of charge, and are excited to patronize our local small businesses.

Just comment on this post to RSVP that you will be there! I am all excited now!

I will work to have one in the Fayetteville area maybe after the first of the year, but if there are any Etsiers up there that want to get together just let me know and I will help find a place and post all the details.

Anyone else want to schedule a meet and greet coffee chat?


Getting Back on Track

Hello AREtsyers!

It has been a while since any posts have been made, but we want to get back on track and try to keep all of us connected! We have a lot of exciting ideas and would like to call on our members to pitch in and help us all! We will briefly list a few of the ideas, and look forward to seeing some comments regarding your thoughts.

1. Monthly featured team members, similar to the Etsy Featured Seller with the same questions to start and then maybe tweek them to our interests.

2. Tutorials from selected team members for quick and easy ideas for gifts, or other simple projects.

3. AREtsy events for team members in regional areas to get together, craft, drink coffee, and get to know one another.

We all lead busy lives, between homes, work, family, friends, and crafting. However we think as Arkansas, crafters, and Etsyiers we can work to make our group the best!

Let's hear from your all, and we look forward to getting to know all of you better!
