We are Crafty Ireland!!!

Hello and welcome to our official team blog - grab a comfy chair and make yourself at home!

The Crafty Ireland team was launched in Dublin on July 18th, 2009. The team represents a great variety of talented artists, crafters and designers currently based in Ireland who are selling online at Our shared goal is to reintroduce the value of handmade to our local communities and spread the awareness of etsy nationwide, both north and south of the border.

So far we have 55 members and the numbers keep growing! Over the coming months we are eager to establish and strengthen ties amongst our members nationwide as well as reach out to talented crafters who have slipped under the radar. Through participation in craft fairs, team events and monthly meetings (aka coffee & cake) we can help support one another and bounce a few ideas on how to actively promote the team.
This blog 'Etsy Ireland' will act as noticeboard for all members - a way of sharing info about upcoming events, team challenges and so on. There will also be plenty of fun content including clever how-to's, member interviews, giveaways, fab recipes and other interesting stuff so stay tuned!

Best Wishes :)*
