It's time to hang the bunting, 
It's time to light the bbq, 
It's time to meet the Stallholders at the Made 'n Thornbury Craft Market !

but they are words we'll be singing on Saturday ! 
It's market time again - this Saturday August 23rd 10am - 2pm. 



This market truly has something for EVERYONE in the family, 

Face painting, and a FREE kids craft table,

"Another tool in your tool box" : KEEP Craft Your Business May 2014

"Another tool in your tool box"  is how Liz from Betty Jo Designs, eloquently described adding an online store to your market stall at our KEEP Craft Your Business workshop on May 31st.

The topic of the day was Selling Online. The aim of the day was to equip our participants with the skills and confidence to open their own online shop.



We discussed different platforms, including bigcartel, etsy and Australian site madeit.com.au
The importance of promoting your own store through social media was also discussed at  great length.

Fourteen local handmade business women, all Made 'n Thornbury Craft Market stallholders, took part in the workshop. Lively conversations took place during the day, especially at the delicious communal lunch.

It was decided in one of these conversations that the next KEEP CYB workshop would be dedicated to social media. We have set the date as July 19th. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.

A big thanks to Liz, our Make Craft Your Business facilitator - Dee, and the women who attended the workshop.

KEEP Craft Your Business



So, you've perfected your craft.

You've had your first, or maybe the first of many, market stalls.

Folks at the market seem to be enjoying your craft but you can't be at a market every day of the week. Plus your customers might not be able to make it to market.....

What to do ?

Setting up an online store can help you reach more customers. Any time of the day or week.



To help you navigate setting up an online store, we are running a KEEP Craft Your Business workshop on Saturday May 31st.

This workshop will led by Make Craft Your Business facilitator, Dee and feature a presentation by local craft guru, Liz of Betty Jo Designs.

We'll discuss which is the best online platform, photography, promotion, product description and store policies.

The workshop will take place at Leinster Grove on May 31st from 10am - 2.30 (ish) pm at a cost of $20 per participant. This is payable on the day.

Bookings are essential - please email trisha@twnh.vic.edu.au to register your place.

We look forward to seeing you at this highly anticipated workshop.

A day of craft, tea and handmade.

You know, we're not just a community market in name, but a community in action.

A community of like minded crafters, shoppers, stallholders and volunteers.

Striving to make a great market for our local community.

Making, creating and shopping.

Even the rain doesn't dampen our spirits.







Lots more photos from our great market day on our facebook page. 

A big thank you to our talented stallholders and shoppers who came along the day. We hope some lucky mums woke up to handmade gifts from the market on Mother's Day Sunday.

Also, a VERY big thank you to our volunteers. We can't run this market on our own and the support of our volunteers is most appreciated.
Especially our 'tea ladies' who made beautiful Devonshire Tea and raised much needed funds for TWNH - Thornbury Womens Neighbourhood House.

And of course, we'll be back soon. Saturday June 21st 10am - 2pm.
