Crafty Fox at Number 10

Earlier this week, a crafty delegation went to 10 Downing Street and I was honoured to be invited along. The visit was organised by Emma Jones of Enterprise Nation. The purpose was to inform the government about the issues facing the UK's craft industry. We met with Matthew Hancock MP - the minister responsible for small business and apprenticeships and Daniel Korski - enterprise adviser to the PM.


We took part in a round table discussion which covered topics including UK manufacturing, start-up finance, apprenticeships, the need for centralised information and a 'kite-mark' for handmade goods.

Video: Crafty Fox Talks

Over 90 guests joined us at Collective, Camden for the second Crafty Fox Talks on 15th August. The topic this time was 'How to do your own PR'. We were delighted to have Perri Lewis, Zeena Shah and Miss Cakehead sharing their wisdom from the stage. Chair, Katherine Raderecht (Future Publishing) asked each speaker to sum up using a single phrase. Perri Lewis said "know your story", Zeena Shah advised "be nice to everyone and say yes to everything" and Miss Cakehead added "be brave". Wise words all round.

Following the Talks, guests mingled over drinks while checking out a selection of each other's work and enjoying tunes from the Crafty Fox DJs.

In Business: Crowd-Funding by Hairy Jayne


Hairy Jayne is a hairdresser from Brixton. She also makes her own range of handmade, natural haircare products. She’s not actually hairy.

Earlier this year new legislation in the cosmetics industry meant Jayne had to find £3200 to get her entire range retested.   Jayne decided to run a crowd-funding project via Indiegogo. We asked her to share her story.




Goal - will I hit it?
My goal was £3200 to cover the costs of retesting and re-packaging.  I thought to myself, do I have a network of 320 people who could contribute about £10 each?  I went for a fixed campaign where I didn’t receive anything unless I hit my target. In a non-fixed campaign you keep all pledged funds in return for greater commission from Indiegogo. Money aside, the marketing you get from crowdfunding is incredible.

Perks - what's in it for the funder?
Be transparent and as detailed as possible in setting out what your funds will be used for. I mentioned that by helping me, the products will get into shops and be easier to buy. I offered a range of perks from £5 to £250. The most popular perk was a £25 voucher to use on my website which I sold for £20.

Getting attention – make a video

A video really helps. We kept it to the point – remember people are busy.  We found that adding some humour and a visual theme gave us something to refer to when talking to people. Be prepared to talk about it a LOT.  We used My Little Pony in the video (I keep one in my salon to entertain bored children) and it fitted with the hair theme.  She came in very useful as a model for last minute Instagram reminders!


People really do need reminding.
Use social networking and your email lists A LOT. I tweeted individuals/other businesses/magazines who have a lot of followers directly, asking them for retweets. I tweeted and facebooked about the perks individually.

Keep up the momentum throughout.
Make sure you start off strong and get your closest friends/family/fans to fund early to give your campaign credibility. I read that if you achieved around 25% in the first week you would probably hit your target. This I did.

But prepare for it to slump in the middle.

I could see that people were looking at my campaign page and sharing it with others but the funds weren't flooding in. But I stuck at it, and in the last week mustered all of my marketing strength – on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and email. I made old-skool photocopied fliers and handed them out to clients and neighbours who weren't in my cyber-networks.   In the last week the trickle got steadier and more intense. I hit the target on the second-to-last day.

Last minute tip.

My brother-in-law (Leon – he'd just gone over his target onKickstarter ) suggested that I introduce some last minute exclusive perks as a final push. I added beeswax candles made with my perfume fragrance and hand printed tote bags.   This brought in extra funds including from people who had already contributed once but really wanted me to reach the goal.

All in all, it was an amazing experience and not only did I fulfill my financial goal, I actually got a lot more serious about marketing myself and my products. Knowing that I have so many people backing me is such a great feeling and worth more than the funding itself.

Crafty Fox Talks

Inspiration, Learning & Sharing

The first edition of Crafty Fox Talks (Creative Journeys) was held on 6 June 2013 at Club Workspace, Kennington. Panel members, Lisa Comfort (Sew Over It), Sam Wingate (Mr Wingate Prints) and Lisa Levis (Ada Rose and Betty & Walter) each provided varied and personal insights into their own creative journeys. 




The third 'Lisa' to complete the line-up was Lisa Rodwell of Wool and the Gang who did an excellent job as Chair, fielding the many audience questions. 



Tips and stories ranged from the practical to the comical. Sam reminded us to think about the meaning of success. He pointed out that although he makes less money than some of his friends, he has a more fulfilling working life. Lisa Comfort spoke of the risks of starting a shop. Her Mum encouraged her to take the leap with the wise words of 'what's the worst that can happen?' Lisa Levis rounded off the Talks with a moving and personal story of walking away from the company bearing her own name and starting over with not one, but two new brands. Each speaker brought a unique flavour to the event and left guests with lots to ponder. 

Guests enjoyed delicious banoffee cupcakes from The Tea's Knees as well as drinks and tunes from the Crafty Fox DJs.

Harriet Riddell provided some surprise entertainment with her embroidered portraits. 

You can find more photos over on our facebook page - thanks to our photographer, Audrey Keogh.

Reviews:
Knitting on Trains has provided a useful summary of the discussion and there is also a helpful review at I Love Markets. You can follow the chat on twitter by searching #CraftyFoxTalks.

Next Event:
Coming soon - Crafty Fox Talks: How to do your own PR. Thursday 15 Aug - Camden. Sign up to our mailing list for all the details. 

Goodie Bag Give-Away!

It includes a purse from Lisa Levis's new line, Ada Rose worth £40, a rabbit shaped gift box and decorations from Self-Packaging, a copy of magazines Mollie Makes and The Simple Things, a tote bag from Etsy.com and some Crafty Fox stickers!



This competition has now closed. Congratulations to the winner Rebecca Fletcher (Becky Sue).

In Business: Selling at a Tradeshow



Guest Post by Camilla - Butterscotch & Beesting
For many designer-makers, the next step up from taking part in events like The Crafty Fox Market is a trade show.  Trade shows can be a really good way for retailers to see your work. Buyers come to find fresh and exciting suppliers and hopefully place orders.  Press and bloggers also come along to see what’s new.

Camilla Westergaard is the girl behind the Butterscotch & Beesting Circus. When she’s not under the big top, designing curious clown prints and fabric in faded neon shades, she moonlights for Folksy where she is working on a whole weekend of tips and advice for designers and makers, called the Folksy Summer School.

Camilla shares her experiences....
There are loads of different trade shows depending on what you make and who you want to sell to (The Design Trust has a
long list on its website ), so do your research and work out which one will be best for you.

My Butterscotch & Beesting stand at Pulse

I chose Pulse because its Launchpad area showcases new designers and offers them a discounted rate. Even so, it’s a pretty big investment in time and money, so you want to get it right. I picked up some tips while I was there, and thought it would be nice to share. 

Plan your stand
Work out exactly how your stand will look in advance. Check the dimensions and height of your space. Also check the floorplans, so you know if you have a middle position or a corner (when I arrived, a wall I thought was there wasn’t, and I had to change my shelf fittings and display).

Sian Zeng plans her stand virtually. “I plan my stand completely in Photoshop before I go, so I know exactly where everything goes and when I get there I don’t need to worry about things not fitting.”

Cecily Vessey builds a mock-up. “If you can, clear a space at home and physically lay out your stand before you go because it’s very hard to imagine space.”

Before you go
If things go well, you’ll get lots of press and shops asking you to email them product shots. But you’ll probably be wiped out after the show, so get your product images ready in a dropbox beforehand, so you can share them when you get back without all the hassle of email attachments and inbox limits. Get your website updated with your latest products too, so it’s ready for all the new clicks it’s going to get.

Don’t panic
Everyone works differently. You might be someone who likes to plan every detail way in advance, or you might work best under some serious last-minute pressure. Understanding how you function should take some of the panic out of the preparations. So if you’re normally to be found finishing work the night before a deadline (um, hello me), accept that’s how you do things and it will (almost probably!!) be ok. Make lists, plan your days, and focus on one thing at a time.

Know your prices
Buyers want to know your wholesale prices, retail prices and their mark-up. Most shops work on a 2.4 mark-up, so if your wholesale price is £10, they’ll want to sell it for £24. They also want to know your lead times (how long an order takes) and if you have a minimum order. Have an order form ready with all that information, so you can fill it in on the day or give them one to take away.

 “Being organised is my top tip,” says Emily Bucknell. You’re selling yourself not just your work to the buyers, so if you’re on the ball with your prices and lead times, they’ll have more confidence in you, and probably be more likely to want to work with you.

Have something to take-away
Buyers are there to see what’s new, but they might not want to place orders there and then, especially if it’s your first show or they haven’t seen you before. So it helps to give them something to take away and think about. I had a simple catalogue, but it doesn’t have to be expensive – a sheet with your details and good shots of your work will help buyers remember who you are and what you make.

Getting noticed
There are so many businesses at a trade show, visitors’ brains must go into overload. You want to stand out in that crowd. “It helps to have a prop or something to draw people in and start a conversation,” say Christian and Josh from Live in Print who had a letterpress machine to show their wonderful work in action.  Or even something simple like the tin box on Ketchup on Everything’s  awesome stand, where visitors posted votes for their favourite alphabet animal.

Live In Print’s stand, complete with fabulous crowd-drawing letterpress

Ketchup on Everything had everyone voting for their favourite animal

Be yourself
It can be intimidating meeting buyers and press, but don’t be afraid to be yourself or to ask questions. “You don’t have to pretend to be someone else or know everything. Just be passionate about what you do and that will come across,” says Kay Vincent from Ketchup on Everything.

Ketchup on Everything
Make friends
You’re going to be there for a while, and by the end of the week your neighbours will feel like family. Make the most of it. Having crafting buddies who are in pretty much the same boat as you is one of the best bits about being a designer/maker. “Make friends with your neighbours,” is Laura Spring’s top tip. “They’re not your competitors. They can give you support and advice, and you can give it back – no one knows everything.”

Laura’s Spring’s fabulous duffles
Take notes
I took a small box full of revision cards to scribble reminders about who people were, what they were interested in or what they needed from me, and even what they looked like, so I could staple on their business card and follow it up after the show. You think you’ll remember, but by Day 3 not forgetting your parking ticket is a feat of wonder.

Bring a helper…
Doing a trade show is hard work. Plus you need to eat and have a scoot around. So get someone to help you.

The Home Slice stand – one of my favourites on a scoot-around

… and a chair!
“If I could pass on one bit of advice,” says Freya Cumming, “it would be don’t forget a chair.”

Chose your shoes wisely.
Mine were flat and very yellow.

Artist's Open House - Lisa Levis

Each year, artists across south London swing open their doors as part of the Dulwich Festival.  This year we paid a visit to Lisa Levis's beautiful home. Lisa and her husband only moved in 3 months ago but you would never know it - they have put a lot of love into decorating the house which shows off Lisa's distinct style perfectly.


We admired products from her two new ranges, Ada Rose and Betty & Walter. The bag below was one of my favourites. Lisa will be speaking on 6 June at the very first event in our series of Crafty Fox Talks. I'm delighted to say that guests will receive an item from the stunning Ada Rose range in their goodie bags. I won't spoil the surprise by saying any more for now...


Dulwich Open House is such a great event, I only wish we had set aside more time to explore!

In Business: Year-Planning for Designer Makers


Guest Post by Cecily Vessey
Cecily Vessey is a successful London based designer-maker who sells a range of prints and homewares featuring her city illustrations. Cecily recently took part in Crafty Fox Connects - our mentoring programme for new designers taking part in Crafty Fox Markets. She is a mine of useful information! Here, she shares some really practical tips on planning for the year. 







When I started my business I read so many bits of advice that I quickly became bogged down in the boring bits like admin and accounts. It was easy to forget what drove me to start in the first place. Here I have outlined the areas of planning that helped me to make a success of my first year as a full time self-employed designer/maker.

Timeline:
Start out with a basic timeline and fill in as much as you can then keep adding to it over time. Once you have completed a full year of business, you can make adjustments based on experience. I don’t work in seasons (i.e. spring/summer) but instead key events are important to me. If seasons are important to your products then plan your work around them. As a general rule preparation/design for seasons should start 6-12 months before launch.

Production Timelines:
Be clued up on how long things take to be made. If you are using a supplier, add on 2-3 weeks for errors and delays to the quote you are given. If you are making items yourself, ensure you will have all the materials you will need at the ready. It’s so much better to be early rather than late and miss the boat.

Launches:
If you have seasonal products plan your launches. Who are you going to tell about the new items?  Work backwards, how long does production take, add on time for photographing, uploading to online shops and preparing any printed matter (lookbooks, postcards).

Big Ben Jug by Cecily Vessey

Key Press Dates:
Different types of press have different timelines here are some examples.
Bloggers - 1 week/next day
Daily Newspapers -1-3 weeks
Weekly Magazines - 1 month
Monthly Magazines – at least 3 months
Send out your press releases at the relevant times, they are more likely to get noticed.

Time off:
This is so essential. In my first year of business I became a work obsessive. Having a whole weekend off is still a novelty so I find taking an afternoon or two off during the week a great way around this (and London is much quieter then).

Time to design and be inspired:
Running your own business means you do everything and it’s easy to get stuck with the admin chores. I use the odd afternoon to go to a gallery, or visit shops I would like to be stocked in. Go armed with lookbooks and business cards as you never know who you’ll meet. I find that after an afternoon out of the office, the next day is always very productive. 

My Desk

Financial planning:
Takings will vary month to month. After a year in full time business I now have a better idea of the slower months, the months when stockists order and the months when I have to pay bills and pay for stock. I use the slower times for designing new things and getting ahead. It's worth thinking about how to stretch your pennies during those months. Last year I pushed my freelance work and did drawing commissions to help keep the piggy bank topped up.

Analyse stock regularly:
It’s unlikely that you have a fancy electronic stock system. Oh, how I wish I did! Keep an eye on your stock. I always have a rough idea of numbers in my head and I write on the outside of my boxes what and how many items are in there. Note when and what you reorder and bring together a list of your best sellers, having this info on the tip of your tongue is great when talking to wholesale customers.

Messy Corner - ongoing battle!

Value your peers:
Each time you do a market or trade show keep in touch with the people you meet. I find these friends invaluable. They help me out of creative ruts, give me confidence and can also answer questions about areas that i’m not so good at. Schedule in time to catch up every couple of weeks.

Don’t be afraid to dream:
What are your 2 year and 5 year goals and dreams? Do you want to open a shop or have a separate studio? How many stockists would you like? Maybe you want to show at your first trade show or even do an international trade show. Once you have your year plan sorted, extend it. Even if they are just dreams put them on the plan and aim for them.

A Snowy Easter Market

We had a wonderful time at our Easter Markets last weekend. It's hard to believe that our Easter Markets in 2012 fell on one of the hottest weekends of the year, while in 2013 we encountered snow and freezing temperatures! Here's a little taster of what we got up to...


Produced by Think Tall Films, filmed and edited by Nurhak Karayol

There are some lovely reports around the web written by visitors to the market. Some of our favourites are by Georgina Giles, AgsiebSelf Packaging and Here's One I Made Earlier.

There are a selection of photos on our facebook page as well.


A massive THANK YOU to all who made our Easter Markets such a fantastic success. Thanks to all the shoppers who braved the snow, the talented traders who put so much effort into their stalls, the wonderful staff at The Dogstar & the journalists and bloggers who helped us with promotion. Thanks also to our esteemed guest curators, Ellie Tennant and Sian Meades. Not forgetting our cast of DJ's, The Tea's Knees with their yummy cakes, Mr Wingate with his amazing screen-printing workshop and Jimbobart for a very handsome Easter Fox. Special mention goes to 7 yr old Jamie FJ who had queues all day on Sunday at his 40p portrait booth and his brother Louis who helped welcome guests at the door. Thanks also to our partners at Intuit UK, Self Packaging, Etsy, Mollie Makes & moo.com. Last but by no means least, huge hugs and much love to ALL our supportive friends who worked behind the scenes moving tables, taking photos, babysitting, designing & putting up posters...the list goes on - we couldn't do it without you. x x x
