Living in a World of Knock Offs



There has been a lot of heated conversations lately over the ever-growing infestation of knock off craft supplies.  Typically, when someone mentions knock offs in the crafting industry, most people immediately gravitate toward the MISTI copycats and the blatant patent infringements some companies thought were ok to violate to make a quick buck.  Foolishness, my friends, foolishness.

However, stamping tools are not the only ones being raped by creatives in the industry.  Stamps, dies and other intellectual property are being stolen, brand names are being stripped from packaging and products are being sold at murderous rates.


For those of you who would like to know how to avoid or spot a scam, this podcast is going to help you identify the offending stamps and respond when you THINK a company is out of line.





SHOW NOTES


When you think a stamp company has had their images stolen, PRIVATELY CONTACT THE OWNER OF THE STAMP COMPANY!

If your images HAVE been obtained illegally, send the offending company a private email letting them know the situation, most cases it was done unintentionally.  Be professional!

As a company, if you would like to get the word out regarding your pirated images, please contact Stamp Junkies Admin, they will be your champions and they will allow you to post in their FB Group how you would like customers to handle the situation.

Do NOT BULLY other companies or crafters.  You only look like a jack ass.

Card Classes and Retreats with Lydia Fiedler



**DISCLAIMER**  
Skype was not behaving during the recording of our podcast so we had to use Zoom, needless to say, the quality is not as good as normal.  I do apologize and I PROMISE once you get used to the "bubbling abyss ocean sounds", you'll be fine!

It would be an extreme disservice to the crafting community if I did not have the bomdiggityshizznit of all crafters on the show to talk about her incredibly cool method of hosting card classes and retreats.  If you are considering starting a card class outside of the how or you are feeling like you want to branch out and start hosting retreats, this podcast is for you!

Lydia shares some of her million dollar secrets, talks about what it takes to host a successful retreat AND we also talk podcasts and serial killers...ya, we're an eclectic bunch!



SHOW NOTES


Hosting Classes Outside the Home


#1 piece of advice: Frequent a local establishment, find out when their slow times are and approach them with the idea of you teaching an art class during this time.  Don't forget to be kind, courteous and to let them know you will encourage your attendees to purchase food after the class.

Retreats


#1 piece of advice: Attend retreats before hosting your own.  Find out what you like or don't like.


Lydia's Favorites


Favorite technique: Decorating backgrounds - anything inky and messy
Favorite retreat snack: Blueberry Scones that are super special
Favorite serial killer:  Zodiac...at the moment
Favorite podcast: Serial and Undisclosed

Organizing a Successful Card Class


This month, we are focusing on different ways to make extra money to support your craft habit.  Last week, we discussed craft fairs and launched our Craft Show 101 online class at SoSuzySessions.com This week, we are going to talk about card classes and how you can make extra money by hosting your own.




SHOW NOTES


Organizing a Card Class


If you are wanting to host classes, there are a few things to consider before you go all gang busters and start promoting.
  1. Where are you going to hold them?
  2. How many people is your ideal number?
  3. How many cards are you going to make?
  4. What will you charge?
  5. Where will you promote?
  6. What products will you use?
  7. How long will your class be?
  8. What type of class will you teach?
  9. How much time do you have to prepare?
  10. Instructions or no instructions?
If you decide to host in your home, keep these things in mind:
  1. ALWAYS include if you have pets in your marketing and promo materials. 
  2. If you do have pets, the dog goes outside PERIOD.   Same goes for the cat.  Cat goes outside or in a room.  
  3. Kids are not allowed at home.  The same goes with your guests, no children.
  4. Clean your house and bathroom.
