DAY 3 of the @justacardindieweek is COMMUNITY (my favourite day because I get to speak about all the amazing creative designers and makers out there!) . PART ONE . Firstly I couldn’t talk about community with mentioning my lovely designers who showcase their work here at Varoshe. I am so proud to be able to champion independent makers everyday, so thank you to all my jewellers who have taken a chance on a start up business. Here’s to an incredible independent Christmas to you all! . @paulfinchjewellery @alicebjewellery @m.calvin @jacks.turnerjewellery @moniquejeffreyjones_jewellery @katherinepriestjewellery @morganjewellery @caratonkin @johnmoorestudio @rockpaul_london @rebeccaburtjewellery @chambers.concrete @clairelowejewellery @maria_allen_boutique . . . . . . . . . . #westmalling #independentbusiness #justacard #contemporaryjewellery #wearethemakers #supportindependent #shopindependent #westmallingjeweller #jewellerymaker #jewellerygallery #communityovercompetition #supporteachother

As part of the #justacard week we wanted you to meet some of our wonderful team who make all of the jewellery here at Alexis Dove. We also wanted to explain why we will not be taking part in any #blackfriday discounts this year. All of our jewellery is made here in our Lewes workshops by our team. Say hello to Poppy, Becky, Kate, Robyn and Alexis and of course the dogs Tiggy, Badger and Kimchi and Jay is taking the photo! We do not mass produce our work in The Far East and use #Fairtrade gold and recycled diamonds and are a Living Wage employer. We are constantly working towards more ethical practices and believe that we are always fairly priced all year around. So if you looking for something special that will last a lifetime and is made with love please choose an independent business this Christmas. #shopindependent - - - #fairtradegold #shopsmall #lewes #sussexjeweller #madewithlove #madebyhand #noblackfriday #alexisdove #dogsatwork #hellofromus #livingwage #traditionalskills #jewellers

I LOVE buying from small businesses and feeling like I get to know the faces behind the business. This part of the sell for me and something I strive to achieve within my own business. So please, do take a minute to visit these amazing pages! #sharethelove #supportsmallbusiness #supportindependent #shopindependent #shopsmall #buylocal

DAY 3 of @justacard #indieretailweek - today is about community and spreading the love. I live and work in Brighton which is such a creative, colourful and inspiring place. I am very lucky to have a studio @rodhuscreativestudios an amazing creative hub, full of different talented makers! Check out amazing handmade lighting by @sparkandbell who are in the studio opposite me or have a cheeky look @jimbobart for for some fun illustrations on homewares. Also in this photo is @katiepreeceprint who creative beautiful handmade vases & mugs at @pottersthumb. Can’t forget my handwoven sustainable purse too! So much love for anyone who is a maker or independent business in Brighton! Keep doing your thing!!!

The Just a Card Indie Week prompt for today is community. So here is our chance to shout about our neighbours and show you why you should shop (and eat and drink!) independent on the Barbican this Christmas! All inside the House that Jack Built you can find @rockpool_trading @elwellchocolate @katie_anndesigns @allrichesboutique and honorary member 😉 @serendipityseacrafts_ , tempting us from across the road @chocaccino, and just down the road are @peardrops_anne @clay art 4655 and @littlebarbicanboutique. And not too far away @bbginroom and @honkytonkwines Plymouth peeps come and visit us all! #justacard #justacardcampaign #indieweek #plymouth #plymouthbarbican #shopindependent

cosycraftclub

For day 2 of #justacard #indie week and we've been asked to be creative with the @justacard logo. Here's my take on it, with lots of crafty elements from my gorgeous logo (thanks @fificreative !) to represent the different tools that makers use. The just a card campaign aims to encourage all of us to buy from small businesses and independent makers rather than large corporations. Small businesses value each sale so much and they can't survive without them. For me this is a personal challenge because it takes more effort to seek out small businesses and find things you want to buy from them. Plus, handmade products usually have an early cutoff before Christmas to allow time to make and deliver them - harder for last minute people like me! #cosycraftclub #shoplocal #shopindependent #shopindependentthischristmas #supportsmallbusinesses #supportsmallbusiness #shopsmall

Packaging is important. We have created our luxury Kraft tube packaging, not only because it’s made of 100% recyclable goodness, but because we want to give you a special experience. - These tubes feature, as you can see here, an entire paragraph of words that we’ve picked from the wonderful English language to try and describe the adventure of becoming a parent 🌿

JUST A  CARD INDIE WEEK, DAY 3 COMMUNITY 💗☆💜☆ 💙SPREAD THE LOVE Well, this is by far the hardest of the days prompts. How on earth to choose? I could literally choose 100 makers/artists who I have direct experience of, or would really like to have! 🧡💜💙💖💚 Without fail everything I have purchased or received from an indie maker has been beautiful and of wonderful quality, with great packaging and a total pleasure to receive. 🧡❤💛💖💙 As part of #12daysofmaking I made a post about some fantastic, favourite makers if mine. For @justacard, I also want to use this as a platform to thank and promote the 11 wonderful makers who hosted that challenge and who have sent, or are sending me, some of their unfailingly beautiful wares as prizes after the challenge. It was a great event and an excellent example of COMMUNITY in action! 💚❤💖💗🧡 Go on, click on them! They are fab and their makes would make stunning presents for your families and friends. Spread the love... ❤❤❤ ❤🧡💛💜💙 #Justacard #justacard #fundingcircle #justacardindieweek #goldcrestcrafts  #makersgottamake #independantandproud #justacardweek #indieweek #shopindependent #smallbusiness  #madeinstokeontrent #shoplocal #alternative #artyfarty #smallisgreat #shopsmall #wemakecollective #makersformakers #wearethemakers #supportthemakers #capturemycraft #supportsmallbusiness #supporthandmade #handmadebusiness #handmadeisbetter

amandabrawnjewellery

I hadn't planned to formally join in with the fabulous @justacard campaign this week, but an avalanche of unsolicited and unwelcome Black Friday junk mail landing on my doormat this lunchtime has really got up my nose, and fired me up to want to help spread the Just a Card message. To thank you for cheering on both me and my fellow makers, and to encourage us all to keep supporting small businesses and shop independent where we can. So, a couple of days late, here are 10 facts about me: • I originally trained as a physiotherapist. • I never wanted to be a physiotherapist. • I wanted to be an actress. • I'm over it. [exit stage left] • After giving up physio and having my children, I re-trained as a building surveyor in my 30's - totally natural career progression - and spent the last few years of my 9-5 working for my local authority on a large new build social housing project (that's me on the left in the second photo) • My first car was a 1967 VW Beetle - RWT 502E - if it's still out there somewhere, let me know! It was basic, no frills, the German equivalent of a 2CV. Pale grey, stove enamelled, with a foot dip switch and a sun visor on the driver's side only. When it came to me in 1980, the heater cable was jammed in the 'on' position. With my foot on the accelerator, the outlet was right next to my ankle, which made for an 'interesting' driving technique as I tried to avoid third degree burns. It also had no petrol gauge, I used to fill it up every 200 miles and just pray it was still doing 30 to the gallon. • Next up was a Renault 16. Bench seats, column gear shift, and lollopy, nausea-inducing suspension. It was like driving the love child of an ill-fated union between a 1960's sofa and a tremulous blancmange. With added just-for-fun jeopardy that if you took a right-hand corner a little too fast there was every possibility of sliding all the way across the glossy leather, worn to a high shine by a succession of tweed-clad bottoms, and ending up in the passenger seat before you knew it. • When I'm working, my go to listening includes, in no particular order, Radio4, Santana, Fleetwood Mac, Chopin and Paganini. • (continued in comments)

It’s day 3 of @justacard’s #indieweek and today is all about #community... . Oh my gosh ... where to start and without Oscar speech overtones?! . But a huge and genuinely heartfelt thank you to everyone who’s ever bought a #tillyflopdesigns card; or shared or commented on a post; or recommended me to someone else. . Thank you to the yarn shops in the U.K., in Europe and in the USA who stock my greeting cards and other products - I am always thrilled when a new shop contacts me. . Thank you to the other other yarn show vendors who are supportive in word and action and to the yarn show organisers who pull us all together for some flipping amazing events. . I’ve met some amazing indies in the yarn world and in insta world too so will attempt to tag just some ... . But do keep supporting all the indies if and when you can all year round . Did I say thank you? . #justacard #shopindependent #noblackfriday #smallbusinessowner #supportsmallbusiness #shoplocal #makerslife #shophandmade #makeamakersmile #fairprice #allday #allweek #allmonth #allyear #buywhatyouneed #buywiththought #buywithcare

I’m a bit late to the party but joining in #indieweek with @justacard campaign. In these hard times us small independents need all the support you can give us so we survive and keep your high streets thriving. Support an independent this Black Friday by buying just one thing, it really makes a difference! ********************** So 10 facts about me: 1. My name is Holly, and no, I wasn’t born at Christmas 2. I opened Prep in Feb 2015 and have taught myself how to run a business with the help of my colleagues and suppliers and a bit of trial and error (not too much error!) 3. I have 2 kids - a girl and a boy and we live in Stokey. My son is desperate for a dog but I’m not ready for that yet! 4. I opened my 2nd shop, Richard Dare in Primrose Hill in April 2017 5. Running 2 separate businesses is nearly twice as hard as running one 😅 6. Before I owned the shop I worked in Fashion as a garment technologist 7. I had always wanted my own shop since I was a kid but always thought it would be a clothing store. 8. If I wasn’t running my shops I’ve always wanted to own a pub. Maybe when I retire! 9. Red wine and spag Bol are my comfort food staples 10. All of my family live in the south west so we are very lucky that Devon is our 2nd home. We’ve lost £500 of stock this week to theft which makes it even harder to survive so this campaign really matters. Thanks for all your support. Holly x

•COMMUNITY• day three of #justacardweek is about community and spreading the love. I’ve been lucky enough this year to get to know a lot of other local designers and makers through @worcestershireetsy team. It’s been a fantastic outlet for me as working from home can be a bit isolating. It’s great to have a place to go to share ideas, joys and woes of being a creative business. ... ...

Day 2 of #justacardweek is ‘spread the word’. The @justacard campaign supports everything I believed in when I was planning and setting up this shop. In order to keep independent artists, shops, galleries alive they need your support. It may be blunt but it’s true, if you don’t buy from the shops that you love, they shut and the high streets become a lot less colourful. Check out the just a card page, read their story and get involved. #supportsmallbusiness #justacard #shopindependent #shoplocal #buyhandmade

Community is everything and thanks to #augustaga, I know how special it is to be apart of something bigger than just myself. For the @justacard #indieweek challenge, I just want to thank a few folks and share my story. Until recently, I was pretty much a loner. I am very good at being a loner. I spent so many years thinking that I could do it in my own, without the help of anyone. I had people in my life who had no clue that I was even an artist! Then a couple of years ago I met Sandra of @purelypainted. She believed in me and it sparked something in me... meeting her made all the difference. I started to believe in myself and I eventually gained the confidence to keep trying new things. One local gallery, a few craft fairs, and many collaborations later, I found myself in the middle of a beautiful community and my heart became so full. Through new friendships and business transactions, I started to realize just how special human interaction was and how lucky I was to have been accepted into a local community, especially as an outsider. I would not be here today without all of the people that I have met... even the smallest moments have meant everything to me. Just a quick shoutout to a few folks who played a part in the artist/person I am today... @purelypainted, @saskia_zijlstra, @mayla303, @bespokepageprintery, @artusagency, @jarrardmelissa, @acdanielart, all the folks at the @booktavern, @staciswider @jayjacobsart, @Laura_fulmer, @augustaarts, @itslilredandtheadoorables, @ben_riche and @claire_riche, @wolf_and_finch, @westobou... I am also grateful for a few in my online community: @paperartistcollective, @saturdayamvintage, @niseemade, @supercoolspyclub, @abigailhalpin and @majeakann. The support in Augusta is inspiring. Creatives help one another and build each other up. I am so grateful to have been apart of it, even for a short time. It’s a beautiful thing to witness makers helping each other. I am happy to be apart of it and wish you all success and happiness this holiday season!

We all know Black Friday is coming up and those offers from huge corporations will beckon. I know how tempting it is to buy everything in cheap from abroad. But what about if, this Christmas, we all supported small, independent businesses instead? - Even if you can’t afford to buy much (I can’t either), buying just a card, or a pin etc goes a long way. Plus an actual person does a little happy dance! - Where I can I’ve been looking for beautiful and usual gifts from independents. I’ve got a basket full @lucyandyak just waiting for pay day. I’ve bought fabulous earrings from @born_to_thread. Oh ok they were for me... I’ve bought an amazing necklace from @colourmehappystore and I’ve put an order in for hand painted wine glasses from @busylizzie_uk. Plus pretty much all of my Christmas list consists of things from little shops and makers I’ve found, mainly on Instagram. - You don’t even need to spend money. A like, a comment and a share goes a long way to helping small businesses beat the dreaded algorithm and get our work out there. - If you haven’t already give @justacard a follow for their amazing campaign. This image is one of theirs by @angela.chick.illustration. Shop small this Friday folks! Make someone do a happy dance! 💙 - - - #anyasstudio #shopindependent #justacard #independentmakers #buyart #supportartists #artistsoninstagram #campaign #indiefriday #buylocal

We are just catching up with @justacard campaign and their #indieweek. So better late than never 😅. Day 1. 1)Did you know that #WYPW will be celebrating 35 years next year? We intend to do something special to celebrate it, so watch this space. 2)We hav over 80 members who come in and use our workshop. Artists from all points in their career use our space to produce prints ranging from etching and lino printing to paper and textile screen printing. 😉👍 3) The print workshop and gallery are managed by a team of 5. We love to chat about, promote and celebrate everything print and are also practicing artists ourselves! 🎉 4)We are a charity located in Mirfield and are based in a former Victorian Church School. Our aim is to support artists by providing open and accessible printmaking facilities, affordable studio spaces and exhibiting opportunities. 5)Our lovely technician Kate Desforges @desforgery_printmaking is always looking for new, interesting and inspiring print techniques to widen our rich course programme. Her recent travels included a residency in Japan! ⛩️ 6)Our 11 artists studios are filled with creative people exploring sculpture, painting, wirework, print and more.🎨 7)Did you know we were funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund for a WW1 project based around postcards? 'Postkarte - Postcards From the Front' involved local schools and the Mirfield community who created their own postcards and stories, remembering those who had fallen. We even got invited to Westminister Abbey for the WW1 Armistice Centenary! 🤯 8)This year we are celebrating 10 years of our printmaking award show Flourish Award. It was originally established in 2009 to showcase excellence in printmaking across Yorkshire. It has now grown in leaps and bounds to celebrate printmaking across the UK! 9)We run printmaking courses all year, from beginners and weekend courses to Summer schools and master classes. We change our course programme all the time to add something fresh to the mix. 10) It’s not just our course programme that's busy, we also have a gallery completely dedicated to showcasing print exhibitions, award shows and special events.
