Craft Geeks at Maker Faire
The Craft Geeks first ever Maker Faire was a great success.
It was a busy but fun weekend. We got the chance to debut a bunch of new products which have now been added to our Etsy store.
The cross stitch kits were a big hit. We had the binary heart kits for beginners as well as the animal scientists and Christmas patterns available for those who wanted a bigger challenge. We’ll be adding patterns each week to our Etsy store.
I think everyone was inspired by the creative atmosphere and wanted to try their hand at D.I.Y. We had sushi candles for sale but maybe next year we will sell the kits to make the candles.
It was great to have face to face interaction with customers and hear their feedback and ideas on our products as well as suggestions for future projects.
In between customers, we managed to design a new pattern (Tardis – soon to be available!) in addition to busily stitching away at our current projects and the process we managed to infect several other people with a love of cross stitch.
