Welcome to AFI, Josephine. Glad you decided to join us. Any particular reason why you did? Do you need any help navigating the discussions or blogs? This is a very helpful group. The more you get involved, the more you will get out of your membership here. I am looking forward to seeing you in the forums.
Welcome to Art Fair Insiders, Josephine. I'm pleased to see you here and look forward to having you as part of our community.
When you have a chance, please add a photo of yourself and stop by the "Discussions" area to introduce yourself to the rest of us. We all look forward to your participation here. Also, visit the "member map" and add your location. We have a lot to offer one another, experienced and newbie alike. Let's make this a dynamic site!
Many topics have already been discussed here before you joined us. You might like to try a search of your topic before you post your question. Just put your topic, canopy tents, jurying fees, Ann Arbor Art Fair, etc, into the search bar at the top of the right side of the page. You might be surprised that someone has already asked your question.
We also ask that all new members take a few moments of their time to read the code of conduct. You will find it at http://www.artfairinsiders.com/page/code-of-conduct. There are a few guidelines that all members will need to follow because , as in any social community, we all need to work together.
Best wishes, Connie Mettler
p.s. The best way to make this system easy to use is to click on the "Follow-Email me" link at the bottom of each Forum discussion that interests you. That way the system will email you automatically whenever anyone responds. It's a great time-saver.
Hello Josephine, and welcome to AFI! I, too, am a fiber artist but my medium is yarn...I knit and felt hats and handbags. I haven't ventured into the art fair realm yet but have been considering it. So far, just galleries and gift shops...how about you? You'll find a great community of fellow artists here, feel free to join in on discussions and blog posts.
