It’s been such an exciting month here at Craft Into Cash. We went to the Sydney Craft and Quilt Fair and met so many wonderful crafters. I was constantly amazed at the talented and entrepreneurial clients I met at the fair. I met people from 13 to 76 who were building craft businesses. Some were building their businesses for charity, either to donate the proceeds or to help their local community organisations make more money for their community. I have to say I was inspired!
Adding to that Craft Into Cash won the Australia Craft Industry Innovation Award for 2014! It was wonderful to be recognised by the industry for the work that we do. Our aim is to inspire crafters to become entrepreneurial and support the handmade movement, and in doing so hopefully create growth in the craft industry. It was certainly an honour to have taken out the award particularly with the stiff competition!
Such a busy month, but also a very rewarding one. Now that I’m settled back into the office, I am working on some new projects. So stayed tuned for more exciting news soon!
