The UK is without doubt one of the most creative and diverse places on Earth. The talent of makers and artists needs a vent, a channel that allows both new and experienced people the chance to market and sell their work. They also need to network with their peers and exchange ideas and experiences. The craft fair can be that channel. It challenges people, it inspires and motivates people to do better and more. Supporting your local craft fairs as a visitor, purchaser, supporter helps to grow the community and encourage further creative, social and community wealth.

June is mixed media month.

The mobile header

If you are using the UKCraftFairs site on a smart phone or tablet, you will want to be able to quickly jump to important pages.

The redesigned mobile header displays three symbol buttons (Home, Calendar and Interactions), in addition to the hamburger menu.

When pressed or clicked the home icon takes you to the sites home page, the calendar icon takes you to the calendar displaying todays date, the envelope will take you to the interactions page (when logged in). If you have new unanswered messages or messages that you have not marked as read, then the amount will appear in an alert next to the envelope.

When you are using a larger screen you will still see all these icons plus additional text.

Click and collect

Just imagine being able to Click and then Collect a handmade item at a craft fair or directly from the makers shop. Well now for the first time ever, you can!

We wanted to create something new, as an alternative to home delivery but what is so good about Click and Collect on UKCraftFairs? It saves the maker money because there are no commission fees, it saves the buyer money on delivery and packaging costs, the buyer gets to meet the maker and gets out of the house, also the maker gets a new customer.

Makers, add your handmade items and events attending or shop and the rest is done for you.

Blog Posts just got more social

Each post now has its own page! Members can add comments about your post and edit them easily. Longer posts look better and give you the chance add more detail to interest readers.

The new page also includes a list of related posts, either from the same category (card making, knitting etc) or from the same county. Only posts that have a picture included will be in the list of related posts.

As well as all craft bloggers, Visitors to the page can share the post on social media.

Update your own main listing (select from drop down menu once logged in) to include your Twitter username, then if someone tweets a post you have added, we can include your username in the tweet. Whilst you are there add your three keyword phrases.

New footer

We hope you will like the new footer.

It has been put together as a aid to navigation and understanding of the site.

Hopefully it includes everything you would want to see in a page footer plus a lot more.

Most of the links can be found elsewhere in the fixed navigation bar at the top of the page but it offers the information in a different way, which you may prefer.
