Rising Star of the Week: Crafters in need of a 12 Step Program
How long have you been a group owner, and what made you want to start your group?
JUST celebrated our first birthday this October 15th,2010. What made me
decide to form a group was I worked at JoAnn Fabrics for 6 years,then
moved out of state with no store to transfer to-I was going through
craft "withdrawal",and decided if I can't weekly go to work at a craft
store-I could start a group and talk about crafts, inspire others,and be
inspired by other crafters
What are your top three tips for someone just starting a group?
Start a group about what you know and love.
Be helpful to those within your group
Choose a great admin team,and work TOGETHER as a team.
What things do you think you did to get your group on the Rising Stars list?
We're active,We're fun,We're creative-These are all things I believe helped us to get on the Rising Stars list.
What do you think your members take away from their group experience while they are a part of your group?
Laughter!!!! We may be a crafts group-but we all seem to share a great sense of humor :)
Anything else you would like to share with us?
Honestly I think the "intro" (description) to our group basically covers "Who" we are. Yes...We are crafters,but we share lots of giggles,Off topic posts,recipes...We inspire each other,we leave the group with a smile after checking in,alot of members on an every day basis.The group is welcome to all-even the ones who say "Oh...I'm not crafty"-We have something for everyone and every skill level. I really enjoy out group-I believe it shows!!!!
