    I'm really glad your event went to well and your feedback was really interesting. I am planning on doing some events next year after not doing any for 3 years by then. so it's useful stuff, and certainly not waffling!

    Hiya Su,

    Have you thought about having acupuncture or hypnosis to help you with your lack of confidence??

    I've had some acupuncture in the past to help with my depression & problems I had at work and it made a huge difference and I have a real fear of needles! Acupuncture needles are nothing like the needles used by Doctors/Nurses, they are tiny and VERY VERY thin and don't hurt at all. Here's a link or if you don't mind travelling, I can recommend my friend Allison, who used to 'needle' me when I worked with her, she's excellent and has a practice in Sussex. PM me.

    BMAS - The British Medical Acupuncture Society

    take care x

    yeah i guess, but it also seems that an important decision is what kind of place you do you stalls, not just any old place

    You need to research your selling locations carefully. Also, who are your customers? Suss out the competition at local craft events/shops/galleries, see what sells, what doesn't, what the quality is like and what the prices are - that's what I did before I set my prices and its where I worked out how I wanted to display my stuff.
