For those that are interested...we got a really sweet write up from TheBeadingGem recently that tells a bit about Andrew and I and the forum. www.beadinggem.com/2010/04/handmade-artists-forum-and-shop.html
It's good, but it only scratches the surface of the wonderfulness that is HAF. ;)

I am a member of the team! it does not cost anything to join the team. Unless you want to open up shop there then it is only $5.00 a month. I just recently opened up shop there and even though i have not made a sale yet. I did get over 1000 views in 3 days without promoting and with few items.
The team is great everyone is so nice and there is alot of great stuff that you can do to help promote each other and yourself! I love being a member and I wont be going no where else! give it a try I am sure that you will like it :)

I joined the Handmade Artists Forum awhile ago and am also on the HAFteam. While I have a hard time keeping up with the forum sometimes, I am figuring it out. I just signed up for a HAF shop too.

I'm still new to the hafteam as well but everyone is friendly, understanding, willing to help in a heartbeat. The forums and posts can be a little much at times but that's only due to so many who are willing to help so eagerly with anything one may need :)

I'm a member and find HAFteam to be very friendly. Lots of promotion by team members in treasuries. I'm very happy with it.

Handmade artists forum is a free forum for discussion and promotion of artists. It is made up of different Handmade Artisans that sell on Etsy, Artfire, their own website or if they choose they can sell through their own Handmade Artists Shop within the site.

It is a marvelous place to meet other Handmade lovers and artisans for discussion and promotion and is a wonderful opportunity for great friendships with like minded Handmade artisans. You would be hard pressed to find a better bunch of people that really enjoy helping each other.
