I have just checked how may people have viewed my weaving on www.shirleytreasure.etsy.com and 2 shawls are in the high 90’s but really how many have to view before a purchase is made?
In this day & age it is great that we can all have our art on view & sale especially on art sites like Etsy.com but at the end of the day we are all trying to make a living with our our designing, creating & art. More people need to realise that art & craft is not just a ‘Past time’ for the talented few in the community but more of a creative energy that needs to be nurtured & encouraged by everyone.
A call to all: if not already taken…. the Pledge to Buy Hand made Goods http://www.buyhandmade.org/ and support the hand made art work globally.
