Trillium Artisans and PDX Etsy in the Storque!

I wrote this article for the Storque, Etsy's new online magazine and blog.

Read the article here.

In case you didn't know, I am employed as the Program Coordinator for Trillium Artisans, a nonprofit organization that supports Portland crafters who use recycled and reclaimed materials. I am also one of the artisan members.

This Wednesday night is our monthly artisan meeting, and for our guest speaker we are having Ryan from Littleput Books, who will be sharing her tips and secrets for "How to Promote Yourself on Etsy." Ryan will be teaching this same class at the Etsy Labs next month, so we are super lucky to get a sneak preview!
I had a lot of fun choosing "related items" for the article. I tried to include items from Trillium's Etsy shop as well as items from various Trillium members who are Etsy sellers, and items from PDX Etsy members who are attending the workshop.

This project is funded by a grant from the Oregon Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
