There is nothing to pay after that not even for leads and contacts you make through the site. Also, you get the price guarantee that as long as you maintain your subscription payments without interruption the price will not go up for you.

There are no other costs for adding events or items to a shop window or contacting other members. No hidden fees or charges of any kind.

If you sign up as a visitor to see contact details, there is a monthly fee of 3.99.

Subscription payments automatically renew based on your selected option, unless you cancel your subscription before the due date. You can cancel a subscription at any time.

I am not based in the UK, can I join?

Yes, but only as a visitor. The site is only aimed at sellers and promoters based in the UK. All events listed must also be in the UK.

Which membership type is right for me?

All membership types can add a listing, list events, add blog posts, a show window, etc.. Each membership type has its own zone and a few differences. Which of the six membership types best describes you, so people can find you and interact with you:

  • Exhibitor: a maker or designer looking to sell your handmade work
  • Organiser: if you want to promote your future craft events
  • Group: clubs, associations, guilds or societies looking for new members or to promote the ones you have.
  • Publication: a real world printed publication that is about arts and craft in the UK
  • Venue: a physical location in the UK where arts and crafts activities take place.
  • Supplier: a UK based company looking to sell arts and crafts materials to makers.
  • Visitor: anyone wanting to contact a member of the site but not adding any content.

How easy is it to add and maintain my details?

Adding a listing is quick and easy, requiring minimal technical skills, simply fill in a form or two and upload your pictures. The site does a lot of the work for you, adding structure to your content and placing links to your listing where people can find it.
