We Won! The Etsy Fashion:Remix Street Team is Awarded a Grant for April, 2010
Although recently formed, our team is continuing to grow in numbers. The Fashion:Remix Team now boasts 12 Etsy stores who focus on fashion-forward design featuring recycled materials. Be sure to check out our page and learn about each of our team members and take a look at what they have to offer. Our team represents a diverse offering of clothing and accessories and we have members from Baltimore, Maryland and North to Toronto, Canada and all the way west to Seattle, Washington! We held our first team meeting in the Etsy Virtual Labs and gave each member the opportunity to share why they chose to become crafters, designers, and ultimately sellers. We also discussed how each of us can contribute to the success of our team's goal of promoting refashioned clothing and accessories globally.
Now, onto the news I am most pleased to announce...drum roll please...our team was awarded an Etsy Team Grant for April! (Hooray!) I know that each of us is excited and busy planning how best to use our newly offered funds to generate lots of excitement and the opportunity to share our craft with others. This grant will afford us the chance to work together as a team to provide some really creative promotions for the handmade, refashioned movement. Look for our future updates on how we plan to use our grant and our resulting success.
