Site updates

Craft Weekly  newsletters

Craft Weekly newsletters

For some time we have been updating the weekly newsletter to cover a lot more bases. It has already replaced the old monthly newsletter by adding the updates and news on a weekly basis.

This week we have added an advance notice section. In this you will see events that have been added this week but are not due to take place in the next seven days. Adding an event early gives people more time to book a table.

The events for the coming week is the same as always.

A few weeks back we added the list of newly added listings and the recently added blog posts.

Focusing on the blogs

Focusing on the blogs

Over the years the definition of a blog has changed. Now we see it as a way of giving useful, timely information to others about ideas, tips and trick, thoughts and opinions rather than just an online diary.

We have been working on the blog section and making some nice improvements for both members adding to their blog and for readers too.

So check out the updates, like adding an image to your current or new blog posts.

Printing leaflets

Printing leaflets

As well as compliment slips, you can now print leaflets directly from the site based on your already supplied contact details, listing and shop window pictures. No setting up or work involved, just click the link on your home page, print on A4 and then cut in half, job done. Print as many as you feel you will need for the day, Paper quality will make a big difference to the look and feel of the leaflets, so it is worth experimenting.

Read more about updates to the site on the help page.
